Brand New – never giving it to you straight, always being a bit secret squirrel. An email has just landed in the Upset bunker inbox from the band’s Procrastinate! Music Traitors ‘label/shop/whatever/thingy’ that released the leaked 2006 demo tapes at the back end of last year.
In it, there’s an image which seems to suggest 2016 will bring with it a Brand New release on an ‘unconfirmed format’. Might be an EP, might be an album, might be a musical goat. Probably not the latter; but it does seem concrete proof that this year will bring us new material from Brand New.
Is it time to get excited yet? Screw that. We’re already excited.
