The Smashing Pumpkins Debut New Video; Announce New Live Dates

Courtesy: Napalm Records

The Smashing Pumpkins has debuted its latest music video Thursday.

The band debuted the video for its latest single ‘Solara.’ The psychedelic was directed by Nick Koenig and sees front man Billy Corgan tryingto escape a rather bizarre looking facility filled with people getting a black light tan, a woman in mime face paint giving birth to an invisible baby and two of Corgan’s band mates in a tiny room playing connect four with all black pieces along with some equally bizarre imagery once he escapes.

Along with YouTube, ‘Solara’ is also streaming online via Spotify and can be downloaded via Apple Music and Amazon here.

Audiences can hear ‘Solara’ and many other Smashing Pumpkins hits live when the band launches its “Shiny and Oh So Bright North American Tour” next month. The tour is currently scheduled to launch July 12 in Glendale, Arizona and to run through September 9 in Edmonton, Alberta Canada. The nearly two-month-long tour includes performances in Nashville, TN; Detroit, Michigan; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and many other cities.

Once the band wraps its North American tour, it will take some time off to recharge before heading overseas for a European Tour.  Two European dates have already been announced and are included with the band’s latest tour schedule noted below.
