Watch Smashing Pumpkins perform ‘Knights of Malta’ live on Colbert

As Smashing Pumpkins kick off their new tour, Billy Corgan, James Iha, and Jimmy Chamberlin stopped by Colbert to perform their song ‘Knights of Malta’ live.

The 16-date co-headline tour will see Smashing Pumpkins team up with former Oasis man Noel Gallagher and his High Flying Birds as both groups trek across North America.

Ramping up excitement, Smashing Pumpkins stopped by Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night to perform a track taken from their recent reunion album, Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1.

Teaming up with Rick Rubin for the record, the band headed to Shangri La recording studio in Malibu, California for the recording process. The album marked the first time in years that original members Iha and Chamberlin had worked together.
