With only a week to go before the release of their new album, The Smashing Pumpkins give us another preview with their new track “Knights of Malta.” Listen to it below. The song will be available to purchase digitally this Friday (Nov. 9)
The song serves as the opener for the band’s upcoming album, Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol. 1/LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun, due November 16.
