Smashing Pumpkins reissue Pisces Iscariot, but do you know what happens if you say Billy Corgan three times into a mirror? You become Billy Corgan.

Alt-rock titans Smashing Pumpkins are reissuing their 1994 B-sides and rarities compilation Pisces Iscariot. The reissue will be released on July 17 (July 16 internationally) through EMI Music, as part of the label’s reissue campaign for the band. This will be the first time since its original release that the album has been remastered.

The reissue will come in multiple formats. There will be a deluxe edition in both digital and physical formats, which features a live DVD and a second disc including the first Smashing Pumpkins demo and alternate versions of Pisces Iscariot tracks. There will also be standard editions in digital, CD, and vinyl formats. Producer Bob Ludwig has remastered the bonus content from the original tapes.

For the deluxe physical version, Rolling Stone contributing editor David Wild has handled the liner notes. In addition to those notes, BILLY CORGAN has written annotations for every track. This version also comes with a collection of postcards, watercolor illustrations, and photos.

The Smashing Pumpkins released Oceania earlier this year. It is not a reissue. It’s a new album.
