The Smashing Pumpkins Unveil Archival 1992 Live Album
'Live in Japan, 1992' is coming as a 2-LP vinyl set
Published May 31, 2021While the Smashing Pumpkins were busy celebrating the 30th anniversary of Gish this weekend, the band took a moment to announce a new archival live album.
The release is called Live in Japan, 1992, and it features the Smashing Pumpkins' '92 show from Kawasaki's Club Citta. The album finds SP playing such tracks as "Drown," "Silverfuck," "I Am One" and more, and according to the group, the "audio is from a board tape and is not available anywhere else."
The album will come as a 2-LP set and "includes banter, extended songs." However, a limited-edition version — both signed and unsigned — on purple swirl vinyl that was release via Corgan's Madame ZuZu webstore has already sold out. That said, our bets are on another vinyl variant being available soon.
As for the release date for Live in Japan, 1992, it's very much up in the air, as SP note a shipping leadtime of six months. "We hope sooner, but can't guarantee," they write.

As previously reported, Billy Corgan also recently sounded off how influential Gish has been over the years, including on bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Queens of the Stone Age.
