Smashing Pumpkins drummer Mike Byrne has left the band. Byrne had originally joined the group in 2009, when he replaced band member Jimmy Chamberlin.

Billy Corgan simply said about the event: "Let's just say that Mike, like Elvis, has left the building."

It was recently revealed that Motley Crue star Tommy Lee will play drums on nine new songs on the band's upcoming album, Monuments To An Elegy.
