Smashing Pumpkins: Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness Reissue

EMI TO REISSUE THE SMASHING PUMPKINS'
DEFINING 1995 DOUBLE ALBUM

Smashing Pumpkins' career-defining 1995 double album Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness is receiving the fully remastered treatment for the first time. This follows last year’s acclaimed reissues (*see quotes below) of the band’s groundbreaking first two albums, Gish (1991) and Siamese Dream (1993), as well as this past summer’s Pisces Iscariot (1994), the band’s third album. The album will be available December 3 in North America and December 4 internationally

Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness is being released in multiple physical and digital configurations, including an expanded 5CD+DVD Deluxe Box Set (also available digitally) and the remastered original album in 4LP Vinyl, 2CD, and digital formats. The Deluxe Box Set’s 5 CDs include 64 bonus tracks of previously unreleased material or alternate versions of Mellon Collie era songs, and its DVD features a live show filmed at the Brixton Academy, London (1996) and bonus performances from the German music television show Rockpalast (1996). It all comes housed in a 12 x 12 lift-top box with magnetic closure, reimagined cover art and velvet-lined disc holder. The package includes 2 books containing personal notes, lyrics, new collage artwork, plus a Decoupage kit for creating your own scenes from the Mellon Collie universe. The bonus content and special features were curated from the band’s archives by Billy Corgan, and have been painstakingly remastered for the first time from the original master tapes by Bob Ludwig. *See all track listings below.
