It’s just been brought to our attention that the Smashing Pumpkins Gothic Western themed video, starring fetish pin up model Mosh. Last year the Smashing Pumpkins were teasing their then-upcoming album Cyr. They unveiled two new songs called “Ramona” and “Wyttch.” “Wyttch” dives deep into the band’s heavier and dark sounds, greatly showcasing their cross-genre tendencies and continuous innovation over the years.
“Ramona” is a synth-filled track that has no hint of Gothic Western sound, but for the song’s video, the band took inspiration from the Wild Wild West for a surreal Gothic Western inspired love story. The video was directed by Linda Strawberry and features the Smashing Pumpkins’ founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha, Jimmy Chamberlin and guitarist Jeff Schroeder.
Along with Cyr, the Smashing Pumpkins also have plans in store for the 25th anniversary of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness and the 20th anniversary of Machina. On Oct. 22, Billy Corgan confirmed that the band are working on a 33-track sequel to the 1995 and 2000 albums.
“It’s kind of a rock opera,” he said. “We feel like in many ways this completes the circle on everything we started and weren’t able to finish at that time, so we’re very excited about [it].”
Corgan also teased that the Smashing Pumpkins plan to announce the world arena tour for the Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness anniversary in 2021.
