3852 Hey Pumpkin heads: Win a remastered, deluxe Pisces Iscariot boxset

Smashing Pumpkins made a triumphant return — well frontman Billy Corgan did anyway — with new album Oceania earlier this summer. Touring in support of said LP, the band will hit Canadian soil in the coming weeks with exactly six dates in six key Canuck cities. This seems the perfect reason for a giveaway, non?

Talk Rock To Me has one (sorry, 6 perhaps would’ve made more sense here) remastered, 4-disc deluxe reissue of the Pumpkins’ classic Pisces Iscariot album to give away to a lucky so-and-so. Originally released in 1994, the platinum-certified album of B-sides and rarities includes the band’s version of Fleetwood Mac’s Landslide and, according to Corgan himself, “a collection of odds and orphans from the dusky realms of Pumpkinland.”

The deluxe version up for grabs contains 17 previously unreleased or alternate versions of Pisces-era songs. It comes with 24 previously unreleased live performances, the first ever Smashing Pumpkins demo reproduced on cassette, a collection of postcards, lyrics, and other artwork, and liner notes that include track-by-track annotations by Corgan.

By the way, most of the tickets for the Canadian dates are on sale now. Details can be found over at the band’s official website.
