After unveiling the track “Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)” last month, the Smashing Pumpkins released the single’s Halloween-tinged video today.

Embedded below, the clip was directed by Billy Corgan and is centered around the band spending the night inside a haunted house. Also, Mark McGrath makes a cameo, because why not?  (Side note: For all of the Smashing Pumpkins fans that also follow Corgan’s wrestling exploits, he’s coyly sporting an NWA shirt at the beginning of the clip…like we wouldn’t notice!)

“Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)” is featured on the band’s upcoming album Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol. 1/LP:  No Past. No Future. No Sun, which comes out November 16 and is available for pre-order in multiple formats and bundles at
