Smashing Pumpkins, Cheap Trick members form band

Former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha is part of a new band that also includes members of Cheap Trick, Fountains Of Wayne and Hanson (WTF?!).

Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos, Taylor Hanson, and bassist Adam Schlesinger of Fountains Of Wayne round out the line-up of Tinted Windows, and they’ve already recorded their debut album.

It was recorded at the Schlesinger-Iha-owned Stratosphere Sound Studios in New York, and according to Billboard, will be released in the spring.

The band will play their first publicized gig at South By South West in Austin on March 20.
