Stone Temple Pilots stormed onto the scene when they released their 1992 debut album Core. The album would peak at No. 3 on the Billboard charts, infecting listeners with singles like “Sex Type Thing” and “Wicked Garden,” and eventually being certified eight times platinum by the RIAA. Now, 25 years later, the band will be celebrating this achievement with an upcoming deluxe edition of the album that will cover every base you’ve ever wanted.

For Stone Temple Pilots’ Core deluxe edition, Rhino Records is releasing a 4CD/DVD version of the record that tracks the album’s history. On the first disc, fans can hear a newly remastered version of Core from front to back. The second disc features a variety of demos and B-Sides from the album, including some never before heard versions of fan favorite songs.

The third disc takes you on the concert stage, capturing what STP sounded like in their prime, providing two live performances from the band back in 1993 at the Castaic Lake Natural Amphitheater as well as the Reading Festival. The fourth CD is the band’s MTV Unplugged session, on disc for the first time in history. As a bonus, there is a DVD that features Core like you’ve never heard before, with the album in a full 5.1 surround sound mix, and a variety of music videos from the initial album cycle.

It’s a lot to take in, and a perfect set celebrating the album. Even better, if you pre-order the album now, you can get a bonus 7″ of their single “Plush,” limited to 1000 copies. It’s the perfect release for any fan of the band.
