Brand New won’t be releasing an album in 2016

Brand New have given an update on their will they/won’t they new album and it’s not good news if you’re impatient.

“First, an apology,” the update begins, which is never a good start. “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 of 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.”

“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,” the statement continues. “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 within a larger set of songs, and will not exclude us playing music from other albums, or new music, nightly.”

“What’s left should be a strange demise,” they conclude, perhaps confirming their potential breakup. “but hopefully one as loud and as fun as the rest of our time together has been. All our invited. Please send flowers.”
