Published Sep 26, 2016From mysterious postcards, to comeback singles, to merch announcing their impending breakup, it's hard to tell what Brand New have in store on any given day. However, the band have shared two major pieces of news in a less cryptic fashion today (September 16).
Taking to Twitter, the group published a letter that first addressed news of a forthcoming record:
First an apology. At some point previous, we, Brand New admitted our plans to release a record this year. These plans were authentic, but we are changing them. While there exists a collection songs that, right now, some would call fit to be an album, to us it is not complete enough, refined enough, or edited thoroughly enough to be something we would call finished or essential. Brand New will not release a record in 2016.
Some more optimistic news was revealed in the following paragraph:
Secondly, we have been reminded that this fall will mark the tenth year since the release of our third album, The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me. It is an important record and piece of work to us, and one that ten years later we still use as a measuring post with which we compare the music we make now. So we have decided that on the upcoming fall tour, which begins on October 13, we will be performing the record, each night, in its entirety. It will be included with a larger set of songs, and will not exclude us playing music from other albums, or new music, nightly.
Brand New's last record came in 2009 with Daisy, while they recently revisited a handful of demos on wax. The fall tour dates through the United States and Europe can be found here, while their complete message can be found below.
