The new tracks come with episode’s 1 and 2 of In Ashes, The Smashing Pumpkins new 5-part animated series, created by Billy Corgan, and animated by Deep Sky. Inviting viewers on a fantastical and surreal sci-fi adventure, set to the soundtrack of the latest sonic offerings from the band, “As The Crow Flies” and “Inspirations, Aspirations” are available now to view via The Smashing Pumpkins YouTube Channel.
Speaking of the series, Corgan revealed “The original story is something I’ve written and although it’s (mostly) lighthearted, ‘IN ASHES’ does address many things we face each day. That is… if… we live in dystopia, or paradise, or both. The choice, some say, is yours; and could even be a quantum issue.”
