Smashing Pumpkins crafting ‘Gish,’ ‘Siamese Dream’ reissues 9:49 pm // Friday, August 19, 2011Posted by susan in gish, lyrics, news, pisces iscariot, releases, siamese dream.
Over the last week, new details about the Smashing Pumpkins’ back-catalog rereleases have emerged. Billy Corgan said yesterday that “we’re working hard right now” to ensure that the Gish and Siamese Dream reissues, due out on November 15, will each have special packaging and contain two CDs and a DVD. Other formats, such as the high-grade vinyl mentioned in the initial announcement of the reissues, could also be pending. Corgan hopes to provide his Gish lyrics, which were not previously available, and he has tweeted that he has an extensive collection of his original Siamese Dream lyrics as well.
The band now projects that the Pisces Iscariot reissue (originally slated for this year) will come out in 2012 alongside Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, The Aeroplane Flies High, and Adore. Work for the Pisces reissue has apparently already commenced. Regarding formats for next year’s releases, Corgan still intends to release Aeroplane on vinyl for the first time. 2013 should see Machina I and II combined into one package, and the band’s most recent press release raises the possibility of a “best-of compilation” in that same year.
