Smashing Pumpkins Shoot "Perfect" Video, Mull Recording Future

The Smashing Pumpkins were on location in Los Angeles last weekend to shoot a video for "Perfect" with the husband-wife director team of Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Farris.

Dayton and Farris previously helmed the award-winning videos for the Pumpkins' "Tonight, Tonight" [2.6MB QuickTime] and "1979" [2.1MB QuickTime], and the clip for "Perfect" is said to be a conceptual sequel of sorts to the video for "1979."

In related news, the Pumpkins are also apparently considering the possibility of not heading back into the studio to start work on a new record immediately after they finish its their charity tour.

In an interview with "The New York Times," Billy Corgan said that he didn't want to concentrate on a new Pumpkins record until he had proven nay-sayers of the band's current album, "Adore," wrong -- which

may indicate a more extensive tour to support the record than originally planned.
