The Contortionist Release Video For Cover Of The Smashing Pumpkins’ “1979”


The Contortionist have debuted a music video for their cover of The Smashing Pumpkins‘ “1979“. The Contortionist vocalist Michael Lessard directed the clip for the cover, which originally appeared on their “Our Bones” EP. Lessard commented:

“We’re very excited to release a video for our cover of The Smashing Pumpkins‘ timeless song ‘1979‘. It’s a song that we all grew up with and hold dear to our hearts. It felt only fitting to use footage from the growing years of the band for this one.”
