The Stone Temple Pilots are preparing an expanded reissue in celebration of the 25th anniversary of their debut record Core. Fans can look forward to recently unearthed rare tracks, demos and live recordings, along with the newly remastered album.

The reissue, due Sept. 29 from Rhino, will be offered as a single-disc remaster and a two-disc deluxe set featuring the remastered album, as well as rare B-sides and previously unreleased demos. The limited super deluxe edition includes a hardcover book of rare photographs, the remastered album, more than two hours of unreleased demos and live tracks, a vinyl copy of the original LP and a DVD containing videos for the singles “Sex Type Thing,” “Plush,” “Wicked Garden” and “Creep.” The first 1,000 deluxe editions will also feature a bonus replica 7-inch vinyl single of “Plush” that was originally released in the U.K. in 1993, an album T-shirt and a lithograph.

Pre-orders are underway via band’s website. A track listing of the super-deluxe extras is below; items with an asterisk are previously unreleased.
