does anyone know when a new album will be coming out? YEAH!
Since they seem to leave three years between each album
They made an album, completely finished, and then for no rhyme or reason, scrapped it and started again
and that it was to be called 'Fight Off Your Demons' which many people thought was going to be the original title of 'The Devil & God...'. Hmm...
weird that they shifted away from that name, because when I saw them in san fran in november '07, i purchased a t-shirt with "Fight Off Your Demons" written all over it, but no mention of the album's actual title.
or whatever his name is decided that he didn't like the album and it was a bit crap, so he wrote a load of new songs.
It's a bit like all the work Weezer did on Album 5 demos before scrapping pretty much everything and coming out with the relative shite that was Make Believe.
oops caps lock.
im glad they scrpped it, but i hate the thought of brand new material i havent heard.
Fight off your demon demo's?
cos they rule.
Untitled one is one of my favorite songs ever
you realize that there are like 7 songs called untitled?
on the internets. My housemate the other year had pretty much everything ever by them - obsessive about hunting stuff down. Generally anything called "Untitled" is off the missing album from what I remember.
frustrating. i remember the gap between Deja Entendu and The Devil and God nearly killed me. They dragged it out for sooooooo long, let's hope it was a one-time thing and their albums will not be as few and far between.
which is your favourite of the first 3?
They've said Autumn (or Fall) on their site and it's Autumn now, so... :D
I can't pick a favourite though. It's generally whatever one I'm listening to. Brand New are most certainly my favourite band, plus the one band I've seemed to grow up with, you know?
What about you?
TDAG is their best, but their musical growth through the three is quite staggering.
Cannot wait for new material.
my favourite record ever alternates between ok computer and TDAG on a regular basis.its just stunning.i dont really like the first album.the second is good but the third is just IMMENSE
best pop punk album ever
second has its moments.
Then by three they've evolved into one of the most interesting rock bands in the world. Great stuff.
Apparently the scrapping was because of those demo's leaking. Dude felt he had to start again, but says he now regrets not just leaving them in. Maybe TDAG could have been even better?
Will be very interested in hearing their nextun!
I didn't really like TDAG,just not my cup of tea. Although i will probably get stoned for this but my fav album is the first,then the second,then the third
I love absolutely everything this band has ever done. And the Fight Off Your Demons demos are amazing, some of them were re-worked and re-recorded for the album (Luca, Sowing Seasaon, Archers), and some were re-recorded for B-sides and one off tracks (Coca-Cola, Fork And Knife), but they sadly never re-recorded Untitled 5 which was probably the best song they've ever written. Anyway, this new album will probably be the best thing ever.
Such a stunning album. Degausser is fucking breath-taking and You Won't Know batters the shit out of you. Can't believe people used to put these in the same category as Taking Back Sunday. Just because TBS singer cheated with Jesse's woman. Tut !
rather than them sounding particularly alike - Taking Back Sunday are good but really are nothing more than a pop-rock band these days. They've not really been on the same level since There's No "I" In Team vs. Seventy Times Seven (and Seventy Times Seven wins every time anyway).
Look up 'Tell All Your Friends', their first and best album.
Yeah, 'Where You Want To Be' and 'Louder Now' are tame compared to TAYF. I agree, Brand New are streets ahead of them.
I think I was getting a bit overly defensive of TBS to be honest, don't worry! :)
but Brand new are in my opinion a much better band
i said this the first time i heard it, and also to a friend just today :). i heard from someone who knows the tour manager that they are re-recording it for the new album. i really hope it's true.
if this is true!
who heard it from you.
finished uni now, just applying for jobs and stuff. how's things with you?
my lastfm artist most listened to thingy.
or, in particular, live up to their growth as a band. Can it top TDAG? I'd love it to but my hopes aren't high.
It'll still be great, mind.
4mins in alt rock than those that make up 'The Quiet Things..?'
That version with just Jesse, where he starts screaming, THAT is why I love Brand New.
I'm actually giving the Fight Off Your Demons/Demos a proper listen. Amazing stuff!
and I miss Brand New AND Zapp Brannigan threads...
You sound like a bit of a knob mate...
yes, there are lots of demos around, but as he stated this is the case for most bands. look at thom yorke expunging loads of his demo songs with the eraser, and also the amount of songs that they wrote during previous albums, that they released much later, eg nude, last flowers etc.
And they were absolutely amazing. They have grown so much as a band it is unreal.
However, Deja is their best album by some distance.
since Brand New say practically nothing publicly about their albums its easy for confusion and disinformation to spread.
rather than just saying you'll clear up a couple of facts people are misinformed as you know otherwise you chose to use the rather more aggressive "so much incredibly uninformed shit in this thread"
there's nothing wrong with the information you provided (I for one had always thought a complete album had been scrapped)but the reason people jumped on your post is because you presented the information in an aggressive manor which understandably people don't really like...
"oh I heard Jesse Lacey is marrying a goat this winter, in fact I heard it's definitely happening, how fucked up is that?" We were just speculating on when the new album would be out, talking about the demos, praising the band, and you came on basically bragging about how you Brand New are your homeboys and acting as if we're spreading shit. All you had to say was, "Hello everyone, just to let you know, this is what's happening..." Not sure the whole "uninformed shit" part was really necessary to be honest.
'I tend to approach Brand New stuff with a less than friendly tone because (as a rule) BN fans are crazy gossip-mongerers'.
See absolutepunk.net's forums for evidence
