That's a weird quote.

I hope that the happier vibe they're trying to tap into involves experimentation with some complex, inherently 'happy' 60's-esque melodies. I've always loved Brand New but I feel that melodies are not their strongest suit. It'd be cool if they could take Weezer's Blue album route and fuse strong, classic melodies with the guitar crunch they're known for.

Writing music with the specific aim of pleasing people? That's very unlike them...

I love this band, but the fact that they have nothing new musically in their setlist shows they are getting stale.I don't care if it's happy or sad music, or frustrated or optimistic. Just write and see what happens. I'm also still disappointed that they never did a proper release of some of their best and remaining demos. An EP to close the door on those amazing tracks would be nice. And a little less screaming your way through songs.

as long as they're writing and playing music, i'm happy.

I don't know if the crowd hated Kevin Devine or Daisy material more.
I loved both though. I had to move to the back for the last few songs because of my girlfriend, and i couldn't hear SHIT during jesus christ. Sounded like he was mumbling.

Awesome. Thanks for letting me and everyone else know. They played for a 100 minutes and still cut a song? Damn, that's great. I didn't think I could be more hyped up for Friday but now I am.

They replaced At The Bottom with Seventy Times Seven

They 100% did not play Luca

Anyone else think he was maybe joking a little with the 'trying to write something happy' statement? Personally I think the closest we'll come to hearing 'happy' is more stuff like Fork & Knife or Untitled 2.

Also I love how people think that just because they didn't like Daisy that it lacked any emotion. If there's anything that Daisy has, it's emotion.

I wouldn't mind happy Brand New music. I wouldn't be surprised if their next album doesn't sound all that "happy" though.

That's a damn good setlist! I would kill to hear Soco live. I hope they come to Florida soon. It's been way too long since I've seen them.

HAPPY Brand New music? Mind blown. Will be appreciated.

Yeah, how about you guys do the same, eh?

Write the whole new album with the sound of 'Fork and Knife'.

They need to listen to S/T Say Anything...good example of how to shift to positive music. I never thought I'd hear such a positive SA album haha.
