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.
