The Smashing Pumpkins have shared a video for the Monuments To An Elegy track “Drum + Fife,” which was directed by the duo of Robin Antiga and Jimmy Ahlander. “I asked, albeit in an allegorical way, for the video to represent what our returning soldiers are going through with PTSD, and I feel that the directors captured that with poignancy” Billy Corgan explained in a press release. I couldn’t be more proud of the message we’re sending that we care what happens to those that are out there hurting.” The video is a chilling look at wartime violence, and the impact that can have on one’s psyche.
