The Smashing Pumpkins celebrated Friday the 13th by sharing the creepy visuals for "Wyttch," one of the many songs the band has shared off its upcoming album CYR.

The spooky video includes lots of ghoulish costumes, including Billy Corgan dressed like Nosferatu, as well as cameos by his kids Augustus and Philomena.

Aside from "Wyttch," the Pumpkins have also released "Ramona," "Anno Santana," "Birch Grove," "Confessions of a Dopamine Addict," "Wrath," "Colour of Love" and the title track off CYR, which is slated for a November 27 release.

During a recent interview, Corgan detailed the band's latest chapter. “I think this is the music that’s coming out now is the things that have taken root. We’ve gone back to just being ourselves," he revealed. “We’re good pop assassins, and I think as long as we’re sort of in that space, we’re good. Anybody can ascribe anything they want to it as far as stylistically, but it bears repeating that what most of the general public knows of the band is really only one small slice of the band’s music. The band’s sort of width was a lot wider. So this falls quite comfortably in the music that we’ve made through the years."

“I’m ecstatic that the reaction has been 99.9 per cent positive, which obviously never happens," he added. "So something must be wrong. I’m probably dead and we’re doing this interview from heaven…”

The Pumpkins also recently celebrated Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness' 25th anniversary. The band plans to head out on an anniversary tour in 2021. They're also working on a sequel to MCIS and MACHINA. The 33-song album will complete the conceptual trilogy and is slated to come out late next year.
