Brand New are still in the studio

Following recent reports that Brand New were spotted loitering at the Sonic Ranch studio in Texas, both the band and producer Mike Sapone have confirmed via Instagram posts that they are still there recording; see a selection of them below.

“We have a new album to put out but the thing is, it’s not ready,” the band told Spanish magazine RockZone earlier this year. “Hopefully it will be out this year.”

“We still don’t know if it will be an EP of seven odd songs or the traditional album of 14. We’ve been working on a lot of songs but sometimes it’s good to leave them to rest before you deal with them.

“Somedays we feel ready to release them, others we feel like they need more time.“

Brand New have spent much of the summer touring, with a run that included a date at London’s Alexandra Palace. Their last album was their fourth, 2009’s ‘Daisy’.
