Since God (or the Devil) only knows when we're getting new Brand New music, why not pass the time with Your Favorite Lullabies? Yep, these are "lullaby renditions of your favorite Brand New songs."

Manchester Orchestra re-posted a trilogy of videos from a 24-hour drive in a van from their 2007 tour. Featured prominently in the insanity are Kevin Devine and Brand New's Jesse Lacey.

Head to the replies to watch the U.S. premiere of recent No Sleep Records signees Moose Blood's new music video for "Boston." The track appears on the UK emo group's latest 7", Boston/Orlando. Not only is the song great, but it also contains a reference to Brand New's Deja Entendu to which most of us can probably relate.

He's also unable to comment further on the circumstances in which the cancellation manifested itself, but does offer some further reassurance: ďI can say that we will be back and I apologise.Ē

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 canít listen to that album now, it is exhausting.
EN: And it doesnít 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, itís a lot easier to be a nut or to not answer to your decisions. Itís much easier to just do...
