Published Sep 20, 2017As Pumpkin heads all know, Billy Corgan is releasing his new solo album Ogilala next month. However, along with the new William Patrick Corgan record, fans are also getting a new short film.
This afternoon (September 20), Corgan unveiled a trailer for a short film called Pillbox, which written by the Smashing Pumpkins frontman and co-directed by Corgan and Linda Strawberry. It will apparently be a silent film that is soundtracked by Ogilala.
"I thought it was a different approach to listening to an album, to watch it in essence with a related, albeit non-linear, silent movie. Art is art. And together the two pieces create a work unto itself," Corgan said in a statement.
The film will premiere in next month at a few select cities before the album arrives on October 13 via BMG. Check out a trailer for the Pillbox below alongside the list of premiere dates.
10/05 London, England - Royal Society of Arts
10/09 Los Angeles, CA - Los Feliz Theatre
