Billy Corgan has announced the release of Pillbox, a new silent film that will be set to music from his new album Ogilala.
Pillbox, which was written by Corgan and directed by Corgan alongside longtime collaborator Linda Strawberry, is a Strawberry-Blank Assassin production and stars Harry Holmes, Rai Quartley, Anna Steers, Kalpana Pot, Hardeep Manak, Los Angela, Paul Seroka, Amelya Hensley and Ike Catcher.
"I thought it was a different approach to listening to an album, to watch it in essence with a related, albeit non-linear, silent movie. Art is art. And together the two pieces create a work unto itself," Corgan said of Pillbox's connection to his new music.
The Rick Rubin-produced Ogilala will be released on October 13 via BMG. Pillbox will be shown at four intimate screenings of the film in London, Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York in October.
