Brand New don’t do many interviews. It’s not that nobody asks, just they don’t want to. So don’t.
But when they do talk, it’s worth listening. Especially when they start talking about albums. Or not albums, but maybe EPs.
In an interview with RockZone magazine, turned up via Reddit, Jesse Lacey lets slip a few details on where the band are going next, new material wise. Translated by a team of expert linguists (i.e. Google Translate – pro skills ahoy), the key answer reads:
“We have a new album to get. There is no secret. The thing is that it is not ready, so to speak. Hopefully it out this year, at least that is our aim. We do not know whether it will be an EP of seven songs or so, or the traditional LP of 14 songs. We have many songs that we’ve been working, but hey, I guess sometimes you have to face what you have steeping a little, as I said before. Is something that we have to adapt, one day seems that we will get and the next we were a little farther out.”
So, while we ‘face what we have steeping a little’ – that’s the closest indication yet. There will hopefully be a new Brand New album this year – or at least an EP.
Glad that’s all clear, then.
