Stone Temple Pilots Announce 25th Anniversary Core Deluxe Reissue

Stone Temple Pilots have had a rough go of it in recent years, suffering the deaths of original frontman Scott Weiland and his replacement Chester Bennington. Today the grunge-era glam-rockers have some more positive news: They’re reissuing their debut album, Core, which turns 25 years old this year. On 9/29, exactly a quarter-century after the album’s original release, Rhino will unleash two versions of the reissue.

Per STP’s website, the four-disc Core: Super Deluxe Edition costs $79.98 and contains “a newly remastered version of the original album, plus more than two hours of unreleased demos and live performances, including the band’s performance on MTV Unplugged. Also included is the original album on vinyl and a DVD that contains a 5.1 Surround Sound Mix of the album along with videos for the album’s four singles. The set, limited to 15,000 copies worldwide, comes packaged in a richly detailed hardcover book (12 x 12) with rare and unseen photographs.”

There will also be a two-disc Core: Deluxe Edition priced at $19.98 and including “a newly remastered version of the original album expanded with rare b-sides and previously unreleased demos.”
