Smashing Pumpkins have announced they are looking for a new bass guitar player following the departure of Ginger Pooley, who has just had a new baby.

The group is also set to host open auditions to find a new keyboard player.

Smashing Pumpkins have already had success with finding new band members like this - last year new drummer Mike Byrne was added to the line-up in this way.

Billy Corgan, lead singer of the Smashing Pumpkins, said: "We were lucky enough to find drummer Mike Byrne through an open audition process, so why not open the doors again to anyone who might be interested for the bass or keyboard position?"

Until a new bass guitar player is found, Mark Tulin of The Electric Prunes will take the position on a temporary basis.

The alternative rockers' biggest hits from down the years include Tonight, Tonight, 1979, Zero and Bullet with Butterfly Wings.
