A Great Big Pile of Leaves To Release Two EP’s November 1st LIVE FROM THE LIVING ROOM- VOLUME ONE and BOOM
Brooklyn indie rock trio A Great Big Pile of Leaves will release two new EP’s on November 1st. Both EP’s consist of new and re-recorded songs and will be available digitally and on vinyl only.
The first, Live from the Living Room- Volume One, a joint release from Boston, MA’s Topshelf Records and Brookyn, NY indie, Pressing Matters, run by Motion City Soundtrack keyboardist Jesse Johnson, was recorded in Johnson’s living room. The second, a studio effort titled Boom, will be released by Topshelf Records.

Mike Patton, moved by the Paolo Giordano novel The Solitude of Prime Numbers and having contributed music to the movie of the same name, has created a 16-track release that boasts some of the most contemplative and stirring music of his multi-faceted career with Patton describing the release as a personal “sonic departure.” The album, titled Music From The Film and Inspired By the Book The Solitude of Prime Numbers (La Solitudine Dei Numeri Primi), has been set for a 11-1-11 release via Ipecac Recordings.
THE SMASHING PUMPKINS–singer/guitarist BILLY CORGAN, guitarist JEFF SCHROEDER, drummer MIKE BYRNE and bassist NICOLE FIORENTINO–will return to the road this fall for an intimate 12-city U.S. tour that will serve as a warm-up to a big year of touring for the band in 2012. The fall trek launches in Los Angeles on October 5 at the Wiltern Theatre and wraps in Philadelphia on October 22 at the Tower Theatre.
