Brand New, I Am The Avalanche & The Xcerts - Manchester Academy 02/09/2012

Below is a short review of Brand New's headline show at Manchester Academy, UK on 02/09/2012. I Am The Avalanche and The Xcerts joined them as support.

I know, I know - another Brand New piece on AbsolutePunk.net. Surprising, huh? Bear with me a moment. Before February the band hadn't toured over in the UK for over two years - an age for a fanbase as fervent as theirs and (whisper it quietly around these parts) I've never seen them live before. Did I mention that they brought two of the best live bands in the business with them for the ride?

This tour was also my first time seeing the mighty Brand New. I had resigned myself to never seeing them live after in 2009 they came round for the first time in years, while I was out of the country. And the only time before that, in like 2006, I had been underage.
Needless to say, it was worth the wait.

I couldn't agree with you more about The Xcerts, such an amazing band that deserve big things. I went to the Cardiff date of this tour and it was incredible.

Ah, that was the last show of the tour wasn't it? Must have been huge.

Absolutely. Any bit of doubt I had about the hype surrounding Brand New has well and truly
disappeared, haha.

Yeah man it was rad. Jesse was in a really good mood, and was talking loads about how much he's enjoyed the tour. Was weird to hear him talk so much. And he even stage dived at the end. It was nuts.

I checked out the Xcerts after I saw their name on here yesterday, and holy shit - these guys are incredible. Both of their albums are fantastic, I feel like people on this site should be obsessed with them.
