Billy Corgan

Billy Corgan may soon disband the Smashing Pumpkins - but not before he tweaks their lineup once more.

Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk and The Killers bassist Mark Stoermer, who were both added just last November, will no longer play with the alt rock outfit. As Blabbermouth reports, they'll be replaced by Robin Diaz and Katie Cole, respectively.

Diaz's pedigree includes collaborations with Chris Cornell and Courtney Love, as well as One Direction and American Idol alumnus Daughtry. Cole, meanwhile, previously served as opener for Corgan in 2014. She's also scheduled to open for the Pumpkins on their first ever acoustic tour, which kicks off next week. If Corgan can have a new name, why not a new set of band members right?

Below, check out the Pumpkins' upcoming itinerary.
