The Chicago studio where Smashing Pumpkins have been working on their comeback LP, Zeitgeist, was broken into and burgled last week.
The two burglars have since been arrested and jailed. A statement from the band's management reads:
“The two people who are now in jail illegally gained access to the band's private space and stole various items belonging to them over the course of several hours while the band had left for the evening.”
The thieves allegedly stole artwork for Zeitgeist; images later appeared on a fan site. The Reading-headlining Pumpkins' new album is released on July 7.
