I'm glad they went back to the studios after their album leaked. I can't wait for it. They didn't play any of the unreleased stuff when I saw them but a kid did requested Vampire Vegas.

How do you re-mix and re-master an album that was already fantastic? Does that mean all the original songs are going to sound noticeably different?

If so, what's the point other than to just change things to change them? One would assume they already made the decisions they wanted to make on the first go round...so the second trip would just be needless. It's not like this new album and the bonus tracks aren't gonna leak either, haha...

Don't get my wrong, I'm completely stoked for all of this--I'm not complaining, but I'm confused as to exactly what this does and what message it's supposed to convey.

Thoughts?

doubtful the remixes will sound different, but good idea with adding tracks since it leaked super early
