Alt rockers The Smashing Pumpkins have shared a music video for "Drum + Fife," a track from their latest release, Monuments to an Elegy. Watch it above.

Directed by Robin Antiga and Jimmy Ahlander, we see three young boys and a girl playing, armed with slingshots and a drum. Their game turns very serious though as landmines start exploding all around them. Suddenly they find themselves in a deadly situation. Behind the video is a tribute to our veterans. In a press release, Billy Corgan had this to say:

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. I couldn't be more proud of the message we're sending that we care what happens to those that are out there hurting.

Monuments to an Elegy is available on Amazon (Vinyl, CD, MP3). Listen to the album and read our review here on Zumic.
