Brand New anger fans on tour

2013-12-21 by andcas | 149 Comments
It appears Brand New decided to throw a curve ball on scheduled tour dates where their full discography was supposed to be played in three locations around America. Outraged fans have taken to the internet claiming they were scammed because only tracks from The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me and Daisy were included. Reports from the shows even state a large number of people walked out after their requests to play older material were ignored. No encore was offered in the set either so it looks like the members were none too please with the questionable reactions they received from those in attendance.

A Tumblr page documenting the backlash can be viewed here: http://disappointedbrandnewfans.tumblr.com/

If they explicitly said they were going to be playing the older albums at a certain show, and then didn't play it, that would be a bait and switch. That also sounds like it'd be very illegal, though I'm not a lawyer.

To our fans and friends,

The recent shows we played around and including the Riot Fests in Colorado and Chicago were such a great time for us and we wanted to thank you all for the response, once again, to our erratic and spontaneous show scheduling. We had so much fun. So much, in fact, that we all decided we would like to do a few more shows before the end of the year. And since we have been working on some new material, we decided that it would be fun to try to go back and play all of our previous material.


That's right, all of it.

So we have booked 4 shows, 2 on the east coast and 2 on the west (sorry middle America), and we will play two complete albums each night. Since we want to cover everything, we are going to try to include all B-sides relating to each album as well on their corresponding nights.

We hope you are all well, and we will see you soon.

- Jesse, Vin, Garrett, and Brian.


Maybe you'd just be pissed cause you're illiterate.

It's because Brand New didn't sell out like many other bands do. Brand New came on the David Letterman and Conan shows playing "Jesus". That was so awesome.

After Deja they could have ridden a huge wave and made people a bunch of money including themselves, but they took the artistic route. In this day and age in the United States that is not often the most popular choice. They were already pretty popular when they changed things up so a huge divide among the fan base should have been expected because Lacey took deliberate steps to make sure Brand New didn't evolve into a watered down mainstream atrocity.

I'm a Long Island fan and I prefer Daisy.

I think its the older Long Islanders who listened to YFW during High School who abhor Daisy. It's not a bad record; just not their best. Every 20-30 year old Brand New Long Island fan supports YFW, because they were one of the most popular bands around this area during that time, and they actually released an album, so it was a pretty big thing
