William Patrick Corgan releasing a new short film ‘Pillbox’

William Patrick Corgan announced a new silent film set entitled ‘Pillbox’ today which portrays a hero’s tragic journey, which is set to music from his upcoming solo album ‘Ogilala’. Corgran directed the film with Linda Strawberry and both will be appearing at a special screening on Chicago’s north side at the famous Music Box Theater on October 11th.

The trailer posted on Corgan’s twitter shows off an aesthetic that reminds me of the early 20th century art influences we saw in the Smashing Pumpkin;s videos and album¬†visuals for ‘ Mellon Collie and Infinite Saddness’. Anyone else get that vibe?

Last month, Corgan issued a new single off the Rick Rubin-produced album, ‘Aeronaut’ which is a the piano ballad alludes to a traveler losing himself in the path he is on. ‘Ogilala’ is due out October 13th.
