The Contortionist have released a music video for their cover of The Smashing Pumpkins' 1995 hit, "1979". Directed by vocalist Michael Lessard, this is the second music video from the band's Our Bones EP, released last year.

Vocalist Michael Lessard comments: "We're very excited to release a video for our cover of The Smashing Pumpkin's 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."

You can watch the video now via Consequence of Sound.
