The Smashing Pumpkins have released the visuals for “Drum + Fife,” one of the songs off of their latest release, Monuments To An Elegy. Directed by Robin Antiga and Jimmy Ahlander, the music video captures the horrors of wartime violence, and the effects it has on one’s psyche. In regards to the concept for the music video, frontman Billy Corgan stated in a press release:
“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.”
