Smashing Pumpkins Announce 'Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness' Deluxe Reissue -

Billy Corgan has announced a mammoth reissue of the Smashing Pumpkins classic 1995 double album, 'Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness', reports PitchFork.

The album, which was the Smashing Pumpkins third record and includes tracks such as 'Bullet with Butterfly Wings', 'Tonight Tonight' and '1979', will be re-mastered and will be available on 4xLP vinyl, 2xCD, digitally and as a deluxe 5xCD+DVD box set, which will feature no less than 106 tracks.

Included on the 5xCD box set, asides from the 64 newly polished tracks, are unheard demos, live takes, alternate mixes of tracks from the Mellon Collie era and enough bonus material to feature on a separate three discs, entitled 'Morning Tea', 'High Tea' & 'Special Tea.' Also bundled in will be two books featuring liner notes, lyrics, collages and a unique decoupage kit which can be used to create scenes from the Mellon Collie universe.

The CD box set also includes a DVD featuring a 1996 concert at London's Brixton Academy, plus a short 1996 performance from the German television program 'Rockpalast'.

The announcement follows the recent reissues of 'Gish', 'Siamese Dream', and 'Pisces Iscariot' as well as the band's 2012 album 'Oceania.'

'Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness' reissue will be released on December 4th in North America and December 3rd internationally through EMI.
