Siouxsie and the Banshees are going back to the vaults. The goth and post-punk icons said today on Facebook (via Slicing Up Eyeballs) they’ll reissue their final four albums — 1987′s Through the Looking Glass, 1988′s Peepshow, 1991′s Superstition and 1995′s The Rapture — on October 13.

According to the band, each album will be remastered from the original master tapes. The reissues will also be expanded to include bonus and unreleased tracks. The group also promises “extensive liner notes.” Pre-order details are still to come.

Siouxsie and the Banshees’ reissue campaign had been in doubt after previous expanded releases of the band’s earlier albums, from 1978 debut The Scream to 1986′s Tinderbox. In February 2010, bassist Steven Severin said Universal was putting an end to the series. Earlier this year, though, Universal released a double seven-inch of “Hong Kong Garden,” and Severen posted on Facebook that “this won’t be a one-off.”

The renewed archival relationship with Universal might go beyond the October 13 reissues. “Something else drops on October 20,” Severin is quoted as writing in the Siouxsie-related Facebook group. “Another thing in November. Something in the New Year and something BIG in March.”
