Stone Temple Pilots Treat 'Purple' to 25th Anniversary Reissue
Tomorrow (June 7) marks 25 years since the release of Stone Temple Pilots' sophomore album Purple, and the band have now announced plans to mark the occasion by giving the effort the reissue treatment.

The band will reissue Purple as a 3-CD, single-LP "Super Deluxe Edition" on September 13 through Rhino. The package will feature a newly remastered version of the album on vinyl and CD, along with two additional CDs featuring unreleased demos and rarities, and an unreleased concert recording from 1994.

Additional pre-order bundles include everything from turntable slipmats to hoodies bearing the album's artwork, in addition to a replica 7-inch of "Interstate Love Song" on purple wax.

You can pore over the pre-order packages over here.
