In April, following the expiry of its contract with Geffen Records, Weezer announced plans for a deluxe, expanded edition of its 1996 sophomore album Pinkerton. Yesterday, Weezer revealed the details of the Pinkerton reissue, which is due to be released on November 2nd.

"We're always planning and scheming something," bassist Scott Shriner said in the original announcement. Reported by Reuters news agency, he added that the group was also assembling an "Odds and Ends" collection of rarities. "It's a ton of B-sides from a big period of time," Shriner said. "Rivers [Cuomo] has been mostly in charge of picking which songs are gonna be on that." He continued, "There's so many cool things that we've recorded for records that never made the [albums], I think they had to get out there. Finally it's going to happen." At the time, the impression was that this was going to be a separate release.

Even better news is that the two-disc deluxe reissue of cult classic Pinkerton includes many B-sides, rariites, and never-before-released material, as Weezer continues to stoke nostalgia hot-on-the-heels of recent announcements of dates for their Memories (previously known as Blinkerton) tour. Beginning at the end of November, the band is due to play their landmark 1994 debut album, The Blue Album, as well as Pinkerton in back-to-back shows.
