Smashing Pumpkins Adore reissue on the way, Billy Corgan pissed at Amazon

Smashing Pumpkins Adore reissue

Smashing Pumpkins are set to release another reissue box set, following previous editions for their Gish, Siamese Dream, Pisces Iscariot and Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness albums. This time, they’re reissuing 1998’s Adore, in a six-disc edition, on Sept. 23. The box set contains the full 1998 album, plus a mono version, demos, outtakes, live tracks and other bonuses.

However, the band announced the information on its website after the release information was posted by Amazong a little earlier than expected. This made Billy Corgan pretty upset, prompting him to issue a lengthy statement about the music industry. You know, Corgan and his rants. Here’s a snippet:

I spent some time this morning preparing what was meant to be the reveal of the ADORE BOX SET, for where the real juice lies in it is what sonic goodies made their way on it. Notably, I was prepared to share this information here on The Panopticon as far back as two months ago, but made the mistake of asking the record label if I should wait. And if you saw my comments earlier today, you already know that I’m very upset that an online retailer broke their agreement, posting up the tracks up before we could do it here first AS THEY’D ASKED. The irony being where do you think this kind of information comes from, if not for your truly?

You can read the full statement here. Check out the Adore reissue details below.
