The original members of Chicago's iconic band the Smashing Pumpkins have vowed to sue whoever is behind the leak of two 90s-era Pumpkins demos.

The never-before-relesed demos were a version of "One And Two" and a clip of "The Tracer," according to Stereogum. Frontman and serial hobbyist Billy Corgan wrote on the Pumpkins' Facebook that he, Jimmy Chamberlin, James Iha and D'arcy Wretzky consider the leak to be a theft.

"This, ladies and gentlemen, is not some Robin Hood helping out the impoverished," Corgan wrote in a post that has since been deleted. He also said he suspects the culprit is a former employee.
