I wonder why Louder Now isn't being released. They just had an anniversary a few days ago

The band responded  to someone on Facebook asking about it on vinyl. "We are trying  there's a huge backorder for vinyl hopefully by this summer!!".

Looks like Craft already did a remaster of this album. I'm assuming this was pressed along with the iridescent one.

This is correct. In 2019, Craft issued the remastered TAYF on iridescent green and black at the same time. They also facilitated the reissues of the Warner Bros. records all on black. The only album left out was WYWTB for some reason. 
I have Victory pressings of the first two albums from the mid 2010s - neither of them sound bad. They’re just fine. TAYF needed a remaster (or remix) to get rid of that high pitched squeal on the vocal track, but the Craft pressing didn’t even achieve that, so it’s pointless. WYWTB doesn’t need a full remaster, maybe just a couple tweaks for the vinyl format would be nice. 
Finally, I don’t know why people need represses of any of these albums. There’s tens of thousands of them out there, and they were $15 up until this year. It’s like as soon as something goes out of print, people freak out and it demands a repress. No wonder plants are backed up until 2022.

Snagged a copy of Where You Want To Be.

I'm not touching TAYF until they do a proper remastering that would include removing that god-awful squeel at 15khz found in the background of all Adam vocal tracks.

The solution? We need a bootleg of the S. Backenstoes remaster. Sourced from wav files off of the 2002 Quantegy Gold Studio CD-R Pre-Mastered Rough Mixes. https://mega.nz/folder/DwwkAA7B#SsUGDVR51uuO7IUtg75NBw

Not sure what you're talking about. Just clicked through every single listing on Discogs and can't find a single pressing of Tell All Your Friends for less than $40. Same to WYWTB. Cheapest of TAYF on eBay is $60. As discussed elsewhere the pandemic ruined all collecting based hobbies really. Everyone that didn't lose their job suddenly had all the money they normally would have spent going out + stimulus money to blow on whatever they wanted. Maybe there will be an equal crash when significant others suddenly demand trips to Mexico or whatever.

The funny thing about that squeal is you can literally see exactly how much pitch correction they used on his vocals.
