After Dark Entertainment (a booking company/show promoter from Buffalo, NY) seems to be teasing at Brand New playing a show or possibly touring. Or maybe they just want to know what time they should play chess. Your guess is as good as mine.

After the post last night that got everyone talking about Brand New, I made a quip on Twitter about this band getting a reaction unlike any I've ever seen on our website. This led to a response asking if Brand New were more open and released information more frequently to everyone -- would the same reaction occur?

I say no.

I love this band with an almost #cutforbieber mentality; however, I do think that the secrecy and general lack of information surrounding them adds to the furor. I mean, some random dude talking to Jesse and posting about it on Twitter caused a gif-tastic explosion and this happens virtually every single time the band is even hinted about. Just the idea that

During the Taking Back Sunday show on Thursday night (November 15th) in Philadelphia, they covered a bit of Blink 182's "Dammit" during an impromptu cover session. You can see a video of that in the replies. They also explained "There's No 'I' In Team" and its involvement with Brand New's "Seventy Times Seven," which really only proves that my time machine works.

Another interview has hit the web from Brand New's Canadian tour. This time Jesse sat down for almost an hour and went into a lot of lengthy questions. Definitely a great read.
From The InterviewJL: See, Daisy was kind of like an end of a road or tangent for us. I can’t listen to that album now, it is exhausting.
EN: And it doesn’t flow (laughing).
JL: Right (Jesse admits with raised eyebrows, laughing) there is NO flow to that album. But if Devil and God was a course correction for us Daisy was the anxiety of doing the right thing and being on course with who we wanted to be. Frankly, it’s a lot easier to be a nut or to not answer to your decisions. It’s much easier to just do...

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."

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...
