Smashing Pumpkins have announced they will be partnering with director Robby Starbuck (Metric, The Sounds, Escape The Fate) to film the music video for the newly released song "Owata," from their 44-track opus, Teargarden By Kaleidyscope. It will star famed wrestlers Cheerleader Melissa, Shelly Martinez and Raven.

The "Owata" music video (release date TBA) will mark the first-ever video to be filmed with the Red Epic M camera, a landmark progression to the cutting edge of the music video industry.

The Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan expressed the band's excitement to be involved in such a landmark project, saying: "I have waited and waited to make the right video for the right song on Teargarden, so I'm really excited that we are coming at this aggressively with the newest technology that's out there. With the concept we have at hand, which is based on brutal Japanese style of women's wrestling, we'll need to get super clear close-ups to tell the story properly."
