Buffalo News Doesn't Appreciate Brand New

Posted by - 10:47 AM on 08/12/14
The Buffalo News did not like Brand New at Edgefest.
Wow. Iíll go out on a limb here and suggest that Brand New is one of the worst bands Iíve ever seen in decades of concert attendance. Horribly out of tune, dedicatedly dirge-dedicated, apparently hostile to anything resembling a melody, and, one would guess, comfortable with the idea of blending emo, metal, hardcore, and punk with an ear for the atonal, the group offered a set that just didnít seem to want to end. It did, eventually.

Meh. They're not for everyone. Let's see how long it takes for this thread to get angry.

Well, you know, BN has always had strong metal-leaning tendencies. I hear MAJOR Mastodon riffage in Daisy.

Wasn't at the show, but people in general need to realize that a live show is not necessarily going to sound like a polished recording.

Love the positive words for Pentimento. They definitely deserve it. As for Brand New, I think the live show has steadily decreased over the past year. I personally love it but I know it isn't for everyone.

Not sure I can trust the words of a writer who describes Weezer (or anything, at that) as "hard rock"

I saw Brand New along with 21 other bands at amnesia rockfest in quebec. Brand New was my favorite. He changes melodies a lot and screams at times, but they were very tight. His voice also sounds great live, he just doesn't always know where to go with his melodies when he changes them. If you don't like heavy music, why would you go see them?
