Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness reissue information and artwork

According to an Amazon listing, the double record will come in similar fashion to the Gish / Siamese Dream and Pisces Iscariot deluxe reissues before it. The page states the following: “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 Corgan, and have been painstakingly remastered for the first time from the original master tapes by Bob Ludwig.”
As Mellon Collie registered what was arguably the Pumpkins’ best creative period (even according to Corgan), the slew of extra content is perfectly understandable. While a full tracklisting has yet to be announced, the DVD mentioned in the description may already be within reach.

The Smashing Pumpkins’ 1994 ‘PISCES ISCARIOT’ Album is Reissued For The First Time And Receives The Fully Remastered Treatment As Part Of EMI Music’s Extensive Reissue Campaign
“My approach was to look at the album like a mix tape. It was as if I was going to make a mix tape for a friend to say, `Hey, check out this other stuff I did with my band that’s not on the albums.’ I didn’t feel as if it had to work as a great album, but it had to work as a good mix tape" - Billy Corgan
Pisces Iscariot will be available on July 16th for all international Smashing Pumpkins fans, keep an eye out on SP.com for orders. Read full article and official press release on PR Newswire

Pisces Iscariot reissue update - with bonus CD, DVD, 6 song cassette of demo tracks and a booklet with liner notes from Billy Corgan.
The newly redesigned SmashingPumpkins.com website hinted that the reissue for Pisces Iscariot would be set for ‘around July’ of this year. With it only weeks away it was only a matter of time before details became to surface.
The website to start was CDJapan.jp.co who updated with a listing titled: Pieces Iscariot Deluxe Edition [Limited Edition]
The description is as follows:
*Non Japan-made disc. Deluxe edition of “Pieces Iscariot” release from The Smashing Pumpkins. 14 original tracks feature the latest digital remastering. This edition includes a bonus CD with 17 unreleased tracks, a DVD with 24 live tracks, a cassette with 6 demo tracks. Also comes with liner notes by Billy Corgan and a booklet with unreleased photos. *Unless otherwise indicated, DVDs are region-2 encoded (Japan, Europe, and Middle East), and carry no subtitles. 
The Japan release seems to be set for 25th of July, with the @SmashingPumpkin twitter account confirmed it will be set for release on the 17th of July. If that’s the case for the dates the usual Australian release would be on the Friday of that month, making it the 20th of July. This would be only a week before the beginning of the Smashing Pumpkins Oceania tour of Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and New Zealand. 
When we hear more about the Australian release information, you’ll be the first to know.
