Smashing Pumpkins have unveiled full details of the reissued versions of their first two albums 'Gish' and Siamese Dream'.

The band announced earlier this year that they were planning a series of re-issues as part of a plan to re-release their back catalogue over the next three years. Deluxe versions of their 1991 and 1993 LPs will come out on December 5.

Included on both packages are a bonus disc of rare and previously unreleased tracks and a DVD of live shows from both tours. The 'Gish' bonus disc will include a brand new Butch Vig mix of the tracks 'Tristessa' and 'La Dolly Vita'.

The deluxe versions will also feature liner notes and track by track commentary from Corgan, plus never-before-seen collages, photos and postcards.

Speaking about both of the records on their official website Smashingpumpkins.com frontman Billy Corgan said:

'Gish' represents our first foray into the deep waters of rock and roll. In the music within, I still hear our naivety and fresh spirits asking to be heard, and I miss the times that helped make this music so earnest.


On the latter he added: "In 1992, with the weight of a perceived world on our shoulders, we disappeared into a parking garage to write the songs that would change the course of our lives forever. 'Siamese Dream' represents all of our dreams coming true, while the dreams of a happy band fell apart."

The original members of the band split up in December 2000. Corgan reformed the group in 2007 with completely new band members and he recently ruled out any chance of playing with the original line-up.

They plan to release their forthcoming ninth studio album 'Oceania' early next year.
