Keltie Colleen's book, Rockettes, Rockstars, and Rockbottom is now available for purchase on a paperback re-release. Additionally, Colleen recently interviewed Tom Gates, the former manager of Brand New, The Format, and Anathallo.
From the InterviewIt’s an unreleased demo called “DVD Song”, which was a placeholder title. It was written in the batch before "Devil & God" and never leaked, like many of the other demos did. It was recorded in a living room. Jesse would just keep playing the chorus during the Deja tours, taunting me because he knew that I love a big hulking hook. I listen to it every once in a while and just grin ear to ear that nobody has ever heard it but Sapone, the band...

I was lucky enough to watch a brilliant after-party show last night that included Brand New and The Front Bottoms. Brand New didn't really play a full set, but what they did play was awesome - some rarely played songs including "Flying At Tree Level." Head to the replies to check out the set list from the show and a video of the band playing "Sowing Season."

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...

Jesse of Brand New was recently interviewed by a UK publication.
From the InterviewWell we probably started writing new material as soon as we were done with the last record, it’s just lately we’ve all been exploring our peripheral projects outside of ‘Brand New’. It’s been nice to get back together again, because you’ll hear something that Brian’s done, or Vinni’s done, you almost get jealous of it, because you wish you had been part of that, so we’re definitely excited to get back in the studio together. We have studio time in April but we’re not really sure how that will turn out, unfortunately for our fans, it’s really ‘see how it goes’ for now. But we are intent on getting...

Yellowcard is currently back on top of this year's "most anticipated of 2012" reader poll. Have you voted yet? Brand New is No. 2. Still can't get any real news on their thoughts for this year ... but I've been told they're at least thinking of recording.
Jason Tate on 01/19/12 - 09:22 AM
In Philly there's a bar called ELA that names all its cocktail drinks after Brand New songs. Someone that lives near by should go have a "Sowing Season" for all of us.

It's been a few years since Brand New released Daisy, and with the hoopla surrounding the band's NYE show, it's got people asking if the band will be releasing a new album this year. What do you think? Vote in the poll.

Message from the BandWe would like to take this opportunity to announce that the band is going to be playing two shows in the next upcoming couple of weeks and if you had the good fortune to pick up tickets to Brand New’s sold-out show at the House of Blues in Atlantic City you’ll be able to see one of them. That’s right we’ll be opening for Brand New in Atlantic City on November 26th. We’ll go on second (after O’Brother and right before Brand New) at around 9:45pm so if you want to see us and you we’re planning on showing up just for Brand New, you might want to show just a little bit...

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.

In a new interview, Derrick Sherman of Sainthood Reps discusses the band's debut album, how he's going to make the project work with Brand New, future material, and Mike Sapone.
InterviewSo if someone on a blog writes Derrick Sherman from Brand New has a new band, sometimes it causes a lot of negative feedback and people are like, “Who’s Derrick Sherman? He’s not in Brand New, what the hell is this?” It’s a hurdle to try and keep the Brand New name separate from Sainthood Reps, but it’s in no way out of a reason that I don’t want to be compared to them. It’s nothing like, “I just want to do my own thing!” It’s not like that at all.
