1) Their old label released it.
2) Who cares? What's wrong with labels and/or bands trying to make money anyway they can?
1) Side One released it most likely as a contract obligation to finish the records they owed Side One but it wasn't well done or well put together (just like that shitty DVD Gaslight put out).
2) nothing wrong with bands trying to make a living from making music but have some integrity and don't fleece your fans who have supported you this far. Alkaline Trio's Remains was the same type of record with Vagrant and it had like 25 songs, a poster, and a DVD (if I remember correctly).
