Brand New Shelve Plans To Release Album In 2016, Confirm 'The Devil And God...' Anniversary Plans

Tuesday, 27 September 2016 Written by Huw Baines

Brand New have shelved plans to release a new record in 2016.

The band, who have recently put out the I Am A Nightmare single and the ‘3 Demos, Reworked’ EP, released a statement last night announcing that their current batch of songs are not “complete enough, refined enough, or edited thoroughly enough to be something we would call finished or essential”.

Meanwhile, they also confirmed that they will perform their 2006 album, ‘The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me’, in full on their autumn US run with the Front Bottoms and Modern Baseball. Read the full statement below.

To whom it may concern,

First, an apology. 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. 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, but hopefully one as loud and as fun as the rest of our time together has been. All are invited. Please send flowers.

Sincerely, Brand New
