Stone Temple Pilots have announced a reissue of their album Purple, in commemoration of the album’s 25th anniversary. The reissue will be out September 13th.

The Super Deluxe Edition will include three CDs and one vinyl LP, featuring a remastered version of the studio album along with demos, rarities, early song versions and several previously unreleased live recordings. Limited edition preorders of Purple will include a replica 7-inch vinyl single of “Interstate Love Song.” The edition will also be released digitally the same day, along with a less extensive two-CD Deluxe Edition. As a teaser, the band has released an acoustic version of their song “Big Empty,” available now on streaming services.

Other highlights are live recordings from the band’s performance at the 1994 KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas – including a version of “Christmastime Is Here” from A Charlie Brown Christmas – and the previously unreleased demo “She Knows Me Too Well,” a cover of the Beach Boys’ 1965 track.

Stone Temple Pilots will go on tour with Rival Sons this fall, with Jeff Gutt as their current lead vocalist. The tour will begin September 13th in Baltimore and wrapping up October 9th in San Diego, with stops in Philadelphia, New York City, New Orleans and more along the way.
