Here's what Botch and Matt Bayles had to say about the reissue of American Nervoso.
American Nervoso ReissueBotch are currently in the studio remixing American Nervoso. we're gonna rerelease it with a bunch of extras (demos, extended versions of a couple of songs, the two opening measures of "hives" that accidentaly got clipped off in the original mastering, etc...). it'll be out early next year.
Matt Bayles: "I finally got a chance to remix the one record I have been dying to, American Nervoso by Botch. Sounds 100% percent better and should be out next year."
