Brand New headed back on the road
If a series of dates can also serve as a series of milestones, than Brand New has hit a number of them in the last year.
It was back in December of 2013 that the band announced it would be performing five UK shows in April 2014, featuring dates in Glasgow, Southampton, New Castle, London and Manchester. They were later announced as the headliners of the Hit The Deck Festival in 2014, which took place in Briston and Nottingham on April 19th and 20th.
By May, Brand New had returned stateside to play the third installment of the Boston Calling Festival held at City Hall Plaza. It seemed like a true turning point in the band's momentum, as it led to an official announcement a month later on their website which read, "A lot has gone on the last few weks. Some writing, some recording, some new gear, some studio building. We will update you more soon."
In July, Brand New had penciled in tour dates across the U.S. and trekked the country the rest of the summer. It all led up to another announcement through Twitter in November that the band had started Fightoffyourdemons.com – a likely nod to the name of their next album.
Brand New will be back on the road come April 8, 2015, no doubt debuting some of their brand new music. You can see them at Coachella, the Brooklyn Bowl, Red Hat Amphitheater, Bunbury Music Festival and more.
What's Old is New Again for Brand New (12/2/2013)
Spontaneity has been the name of the game for Brand New. The recent shows they played, including Riot Fests in Colorado and Chicago, were apparently a stunning good time for the band. So much so that they posted a message on their website to thank fans for showing up despite the erratic scheduling. And because those fans arrived en mass, the guys decided they wanted to do a few more shows before the end of 2013.
Not just any shows, of course. They've decided to go back and play all of their old material. ALL of it. To make that happen, they've booked 4 shows – 2 on the east coast and 2 on the west – and will play two complete albums each night. And since they did say they wanted to cover everything, they're also going to try and include all B-sides relating to each album as well on their corresponding nights.
The shows will be December 9th and 10th at the Observatory in Santa Ana, California, and December 20th and 21st at The Paramount in Huntingdon, NY and the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey.
Fans are hopeful that the website message, simply signed 'Jesse, Vin, Garrett, and Brian,' is a precursor to an announcement concerning brand new material from Brand New. Fans have certainly waited long enough, and that status of the band had been up in the air since they canceled an appearance at the main stage of the 2013 Reading and Leeds Festivals "due to insurmountable personal issues."
Stay tuned to see what Brand New stuff will happen next with this band.
About Brand New tickets
The New York band Brand New just wants to play memorable songs that young people can move to, sing along with, and remember long after the show. The quartet doesn't seek to be a heady act with deep, contemplative lyrics and lofty sophistication built into their music. They just like to keep it simple, memorable, easy to move to, and fun. And that's pretty much what you will get with Brand New tickets, a good time, with unforgettable songs, lots of involuntary movement to the beat, simple harmonies and subject matter everyone can relate to. Nothing fancy, nothing unnecessary. Brand New, which started in 2000, has always maintained a punk edge underpinning their pop tunes, expresses its share of angst, with screamed choruses that rev up their fans amid riveting guitar riffs. After four albums, though, the quartet seems to be hardening their sound, leaning more on the punk edge with each recording. Brand New is Jesse Lacey, vocals and guitar, Vincent Accardi, guitar and vocals, Garrett Tierney, bass, Brian Lane, drums, and Derrick Sherman, keyboard and guitar. Their influences draw broadly from rock history, including The Cars, Squeeze and The Beach Boys, but also Weezer and Foo Fighters. Brand New's debut album, Your Favorite Weapon, released in 2002, was written, produced and recorded completely by the band. It's a collection of mostly bitter, post-breakup anthems, and received positive reviews and decent sales, which launched Brand New into tour mode. They followed their debut in 2004 with Deja Entendu, which featured the single 'The Quiet Things That No One Every Knows,' a dark diatribe about the hidden dynamics in relationships. The song and video received good play, and headed out for another tour. After signing with Interscope, Brand New began work on their third album, The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me, with the single 'Jesus Christ,' which the band performed on the TV show Late Night with Conan O'Brien and Late Show with David Letterman. Brand New's latest album, Daisy, was released in 2009 and features the single 'At the Bottom,' and climbed to Number 6 on Billboard charts, their best showing to date.
