Siouxsie and the Banshees will release deluxe reissues of their final four studio albums, complete with remastered audio, unreleased bonus tracks, and extensive liner notes.
As Slicing Up Eyeballs points out, reissues for 1987’s Through the Looking Glass 1988’s Peepshow, 1991’s Superstition, and 1995’s The Rapture are due to arrive on October 13th.
The reissues mark a continuation of an archival campaign that originally began back in 2005. After reissuing the band’s first seven studio albums, Universal canceled the remainder of the campaign. At the time, bassist Steven Severin explained, “Universal have decided not to release any more single disc remasters. As the final four albums don’t have enough extras to warrant the double disc ‘deluxe’ treatment, they have halted our programme four albums short. They have given us the opportunity to license the last four (Peepshow, Glass, Super, Rapture) to another label. We are looking into this.”
It appears that Siouxsie and Universal have since rekindled the relationship, as the label reportedly has three years worth of releases planned for the band. In addition to the reissues, Severin said “Something else drops on Oct. 20th. Another thing in November. Something in the New Year and something BIG in March.”
