Re-issue[edit]

Matt Bayles finished a remastering of American Nervoso, some time in late 2006. It was released in June 2007 and can be purchased at various independent records locations. The re-issue includes demos, extended versions of songs and the two opening measures of "Hives", which were accidentally clipped off in the original mastering.[2]
