Brand New has pushed back the release of its highly anticipated new album until at least next year.
“At some point previous, we, Brand New, admitted our plans to release a record this year,” the Levittown band wrote on its Facebook page. “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.”
But what about the great single “Mene” from last year? What about the fall tour the band booked thinking it would be supporting a new album?
Well, they have a plan for that. Brand New will celebrate the 10th anniversary of “The Devil and God Are Raging Inside of Me” by performing it in its entirety. “It is an important record and piece of work to us and one that 10 years later we still use as a measuring post with which we compare the music we make now,” the band said. “It will be included within a larger set of songs.”
