A.K.A. every album they've already released! Ha!
The popular 90's alternative-rock band Smashing Pumpkins is kicking off a three-year program this fall by releasing expanded versions of their breakthrough album Siamese Dream, followed by Gish, and Pisces Iscariot.
Sound familiar? Go check your CD collection because you probably already have them, BUT in case you missed the grunge era, this is a great chance to catch up on your rock history!
The band's frontman and only original member, Billy Corgan, made the announcement with EMI Music on Tuesday.
In what he calls a "groundbreaking deal", Corgan says the band will have full control of the unreleased materials, explaining:
"What makes the deal with EMI groundbreaking is the band has secured the right to all unreleased materials and will be in charge of any additional releases based on our discretion. In essence, the band has the keys to the warehouse and can release whatever we want, when we want it."
Good for them! It's nice to see the musicians holding the power instead of the record company.
Next year, Corgan will reissue the 1995 double album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, the 5-disc boxed set The Aeroplane Flies High, and Adore.
Could this be the beginning of the return of 90's rock? Will Alanis Morissette follow, with Chumbawumba not far behind? Ha!
Are U excited to hear that the Smashing Pumpkins will reissue the old albums?
