Billy Corgan has confirmed that Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee is in the studio recording drum tracks for a new Smashing Pumpkins album.

Corgan posted a photo of himself with Lee, writing, “Here's a shot from the mission out west. Just finished round 1 of tracking drums with Tommy Lee for the new the Smashing Pumpkins album. Shockla-locka-boom. Yes, that T Lee for all 9 songs of 'Monument To An Elegy.'”

Corgan recently revealed that he plans to complete the recording of two new Pumpkins albums, "Monuments To An Elegy" and "Day For Night", by August 15.

Lee and Motley Crue are also currently in the studio, working on the final song of their career.

“All Bad Things Must Come To An End” is expected to be released in sync with the band’s farewell tour, which starts July 2 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The new song’s title was featured on the poster for the tour, issued alongside a press conference in January announcing the trek.
