"Your Favorite Weapon" - Press Release

Posted by: Jason Tate (10/31/11)
The official press release from Razor and Tie/Triple Crown Records regarding the re-release of Brand New's Your Favorite Weapon can be found in the replies. The information isn't really new - but there's some sales numbers in there that some will find interesting. Plus, if I don't post this - no one can call us absolutebrandnew.net today, and it's just not worth coming to work if I can't incite a snarky comment.

(New York, NY) – On November 21st, Razor & Tie and Triple Crown Records will release a special deluxe edition of the seminal band Brand New’s debut album, Your Favorite Weapon. A vinyl of the album will also be released on December 6th. This marks the 10th anniversary of the classic uninhibited, powerful record that propelled Brand New to the forefront of the post-hardcore music scene and influenced a generation. Your Favorite Weapon- Deluxe Edition is fully re-mastered with new artwork and seven demos- 4 song self-released demo and 3 never heard before re-recorded demos. Pre-Order the album at Amazon HERE.

Your Favorite Weapon was originally produced by Mike Sapone (Taking Back Sunday, Envy On The Coast, Straylight Run, Crime in Stereo, MC Lars and Public Enemy) and has sold over 315,000 albums to date. The album featured raw, poignant songs that well defined a cohort of lost teenagers and launched Brand New into the music scene. Formed in 2000, Brand New has released four albums - debut album Your Favorite Weapon in 2000, critically acclaimed sophomore album Deja Entendu in 2003, The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me in 2006 and Daisy in 2009, which debuted at #6 on the Billboard 200.

Also, Sainthood Reps played this Paper + Plastick warehouse show yesterday I set up for after Fest, and I was talking to him about Brand New's mindset/inexistant cycle of touring and writing. Was such a trippy conversation. Wild.

Was surprised they didn't put all the b-sides on it from that era. At least in the bonus disc.

I've seen this question bantered about in a few of these re-release threads, and I'm wondering the same thing.

Too bad Brand New don't feel quite as much love for their debut album, and often get annoyed when their fans scream out requests from Your Favorite Weapon. It's so seminal, they don't even want to play those songs!

Things like, "Does this trash can have Bud or Bud Light in it?" and other things. Just kidding.
