The remastered album was announced last October but coronavirus-enforced production delays meant the vinyl edition of the reissue was not expected to be available to ship until early 2021.

First released on October 10, 1995, the follow-up to the band’s landmark album ‘Dookie’ peaked at Number Two on the Billboard 200 chart and features the singles ‘Stuck With Me’, ‘Walking Contradiction’ and ‘Geek Stink Breath’
