The eighties rockers, who reunited in 2009 after splitting in 1998, took to to inform fans that the re-releases are controlled by Rhino Records, the home of Warner Music's back catalogue, and have no affiliation with the group.

The message reads, "Most of you have probably heard news about upcoming Angel Dust and Real Thing reissues, and the latest statements seem (to) imply that these are band sponsored releases. In fact, they are Warners/Rhino re-issues (who still own the licence to them). This is not to say that they are not worth getting... it's just that they are not coming from us. Hope that makes sense. Thanks."

Remastered versions of Angel Dust, first released in 1992, and 1989's The Real Thing are due for release in June (15).
