Queen are expected to play gigs in America this summer with Adam Lambert.
Brian told BBC Radio 2: ''We are ongoing, we can't help it, I think we all protested too much in the sense when Freddie went and we didn't want to talk about it and didn't want to be Queen for a while.
''But after a while you realise that people wanna hear the songs and see us do things. So, no matter what you call it, Roger and I do do stuff and I think we'll be doing some more stuff this summer in fact, probably in the States.''
When quizzed about who will stand in as a frontman for the band, the 66-year-old musician said: ''We've been talking to Adam Lambert, you know we've already done some gigs with Adam, who is amazing.''
Brian and Roger have joined forces with 32-year-old Adam, who was the runner-up on American Idol in 2009, for a number of concerts in the past.
The band are also still ''good friends'' with Paul Rodgers, who they formed a supergroup with in 2005, but Brian said it was unlikely they would work together anytime soon.
He added: ''Paul has a career of his own and he can't do the Queen thing indefinitely.''
Corgan took to Instagram to confirm rumours of new Pumpkins material, saying the first songs could arrive as early as May.
