EMI Music s extensive reissue campaign honoring the legacy of THE SMASHING PUMPKINS continues July 17 in North America. That s when the iconic alternative band s third album PISCES ISCARIOT--1994 s platinum-certified disc that reached #4 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart--receives the fully remastered treatment for the first time. This follows last year s acclaimed reissues of the band s groundbreaking first two albums, Gish (1991) and Siamese Dream (1993).
Featuring the band s take on the Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks song Landslide which reached #3 on Modern Rock Tracks chart, PISCES ISCARIOT is being released in multiple configurations: Deluxe Physical Album--which comes with a live DVD and the first-ever PUMPKINS demo reproduced on cassette--Deluxe Digital, Standard Physical, Digital and 180G Vinyl. The bonus content and special features were curated from the band s archives by CORGAN, and have been painstakingly remastered for the first time from the original master tapes by Bob Ludwig.
