Brand New Drummer Talks Future
2013-07-12 by andcas | 55 Comments

There's been a lot of speculation that Brand New have been on the verge of calling it quits as a band. The set plans to hit the studio in April of last year stalled, leaving fans patiently waiting without a single update. To add further doubt, the members recently dropped out of their European tour schedule, under the vague reason of "insurmountable personal issues."

Well it looks like everyone can rest easy, at least for now, because drummer Brian Lane has confirmed with DIY magazine that new material is in the works. Though, when asked about the heavy rumors of current inner turmoil within the group, he simply stated, "I can say that we will be back and I apologize.”

But this is only directed towards the missed dates, as he decided to not touch on any other subject except for plugging his new side project. So despite the promise of another Brand New album being in the cards, it'll most definitely have to wait till after a debut release with shows for his gig to come and pass.

Us tour dates are still happening, including both Riot Fests in Chicago and Denver, so if you're attending you'll be in luck. Aside from those facts, it would appear that patience will have to continue to be a virtue for hopefully just a little while longer.

at least they're still a band and will, hopefully, eventually release something new. good news is good news, even if it's not what we were hoping for.

"I know which is why I reported on it"

saying you "reported" on it is giving yourself a little too much credit

Andcas you sure do get a lot of hate around these parts, don't you?

Anyways, inner turmoil has always seemed to fuel this band more than anything so I'm excited to see where this goes.

i think the "we'll be back" thing refers to going back to the uk since they cancelled their tour and for all we know the "brand new stuff going on" could be the US shows they're playing later this year.

i won't believe anything until i get an official album announcement

thanks man, this is actually really good. if the rest of the album holds up to this song i think i finally have something new to listen. Haven't been into anything much since that Listener - Time Machine album. This definitely beats the shit out of Dustin Kensrue's little brother's band.
