The Smashing Pumpkins’ new bassist Nicole Fiorentino was featured on the band’s Siamese Dream album cover, reports

Frontman Billy Corgan unveiled on Twitter that his new bassist has ties with the band and was even featured on their 1993 album as the young girl on the left.

The bassist had said she was one of the two young girls to grace the cover of the album, which many critics argue to be the band’s best.

Before joining the band, she was a part of other bands, such as [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Vercuca Salt[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Spinnerette[/lastfm]. She served as the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Smashing Pumpkin[/lastfm]’s touring bassist before officially joining the band last year.

Corgan apparently wanted to keep her link to the band a secret so as not to jeopardize her chances of making the band.
