Jesse Lacey Speaks Out About Brand New's Future

Posted by - 09:32 AM on 05/15/12
Jesse Lacey was interviewed for this article about Bamboozle and said some things about Brand New, including how the band's studio time in April was not used to record a new Brand New album. It doesn't seem like there's a plan to record one soon, either. The quote is below.
From the ArticleBy phone from his Suffolk County home, Lacey speaks earnestly but vaguely about the band's future. Brand New booked studio time in April, and its members took advantage of it -- but usually not together. "You start to lose that whole idea that it's important for our band to be known as this entity. And we put a lot more importance on our individual fulfillment, really," Lacey says. "In some ways a band can be limiting, especially after being in it for 10 to 12 years. It really has become a lot more about the friendship and the families we have with each other -- and the idea that we can't do this much longer."

So what's the band's future? "Brand New is always going to be Brand New -- I don't think we're ever going to say, 'Hey, we're never going to record a record again,' " Lacey continues. "But at the same time, there were things in the course of the band that we weren't looking ahead to what the next record was going to be."

At the least, Lacey confirms Brand New will still be together when it plays Bamboozle. "We're playing the day that Bon Jovi is playing, and it's just a total laugh. How does that make any sense whatsoever?" he says amiably. "You mention it in passing to your friends. Just the look on their faces: 'What do you mean?' 'I don't know, they asked us. So we're going to do it.'"

It always seems like BN is more of a chore for them now than it is fun.

The needle hasn't moved an inch. Lacey, per usual, gave us no new information.

Every band at some point or another reaches this stage. They're feeling the pressure of making a record in a market that had seemingly changed more since their last record than it has in the past ten years. They're also regarded as the kings of their scene by many. Lacey isn't built for pressure or stress as it seems to only causes him and the band more issues. I'm a happy BN fan until the day I die because I got YFW and Deja. Two of the most important records that have ever been written in my mind.

Let them go quietly into the night. They gave us their best.

So they didn't record an album and have no plans currently to do so?

Edit: Only skimmed the quote, missed the actual newsposts text. Bummer. I like Daisy, but I know a lot of people might be disappointed if that's what they end with.
