a remaster already?!
Usually when indie albums like PTSD get picked up by a larger label, they get re-mastered or mixed in some way. There are many indie releases that get picked up for national distribution within two-three years of release. So this seems pretty typical to me. Personally, I would have liked something added to it – especially some bonus songs. But it has been a while since a new release by Knott has gotten national release on a label, so that is good. And the re-master really does sound a whole lot better.
