Billy Corgan's new solo album "Ogilala" to soundtrack silent film, "Pillbox"

Strawberry-Blank Assassin Billy Corgan's forthcoming solo album Ogilala will soundtrack a silent film co-directed by the Smashing Pumpkins frontman. The film is titled Pillbox, and you can watch its trailer now on YouTube.

"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," the musician, who's going by the name William Patrick Corgan nowadays, says of Pillbox.

"Art is art," Corgan continues. "And together the two pieces create a work unto itself."

Screenings of Pillbox will be held October 5 in London, October 9 in Los Angeles, October 11 in Chicago and October 12 in New York City. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, September 22 via

Ogilala, produced by Rick Rubin, will be released October 13.
