Brand new Brand New record

2017-08-15 by ian bledsoe | 382 Comments
The New York based emo veterans Brand New took to Twitter today to announce their 5th studio album after 2009's Daisy like it was nothing stating simply that it's coming in October with merch and a tour to support.The vinyl preorders linked in the tweet below are up and very limited. The album is slated to be released in October of this year with a tour to follow.

EDIT: The vinyl sold out quickly, as expected. It is unknown at the moment when another pressing will roll out. At the moment those preorders were the only copies being sold.


SECOND EDIT: There is a link to purchase any format of the album entitled Science Fiction here and some are saying they already have the download code after purchase; will update with more details.

LINK TO PURCHASE: http://procrastinatemusictraitors.limitedrun.com/products/598731-brand-new-science-fiction

Crazy how quick it sold out. There was a rumor a week or two ago that it was going to be announced very nonchalantly soon and it was already finished so I guess it was right. I'm hyped of course but at the same time I have no idea what it'll sound like. I doubt it'll sound like Mene or I Am a Nightmare

^hard to say why that is at this point. hopefully the reasons will become clear later on. however, speculations can be made easily: probably the best guess atm would be to build hyyyyyyyyype

and goddamn its workin on me

They'll press more for sure, this extremely limited press is likely to be some kind of special edition?

im also curious about what the release situation will be like. a wide release seems like an obvious, logical step, but why make the initial press so limited if you're just gonna get around to that anyway right afterward?

could be that this is the only vinyl press, or they'll withhold a digital/CD release for a while; the possibilities are endless.

Sealed to Me was SO good live. I really hope they go in that direction. If they do like a generic back to roots record that'd make sense and be somewhat enjoyable but I'm going to be a bit bummed out if they go out on a pop-punk only note. I find it a waste of Jesse's voice to only sing in that style.

It's cool, I'll just be patient and not get my panties in a bunch. I'll hear the shit eventually. They have been saying this will be their last for a while now, and that it's over in 2018. This will probably just be the 2 singles and a random hodgepodge of songs thrown together.

And I'll still dig the shit out of it most likely.

"A Brand New album article and a Converge album article are literally touching each other on the Sputnik homepage. If this was 2008 holy shit"

What's interesting is how both bands released two songs before announcing their new album too. On the Converge side the majority are upset one of those two songs won't be on the new album. But over here we all seem to agree that we don't want either of Brand New's two songs on the new one lol

Honestly, I would be pretty content with an album full of songs that were of the same quality as Mene and even I am a Nightmare, but grew on me and are good songs. Keeping my expectations at that and hoping to be blown away.

yeaaaa i unno i thought mene and i am a nightmare were both fantastic. definitely not goat brand new but thas a rlly rlly high bar. ideally however those songs wont be on the new album cuz everyones already played the shiz outta them.

also drum sound on mene was good but i think it needed to be louder in the mix

Download and listen to these in order. It'll probably be as good or better than the new BN, and I've been pretending this is their new record for over a year anyway:

1. Mene (single version)
2. I Am a Nightmare (single version)
3. Good Man (Demo 2006 release - the polished version released in 2016)
4. Missing You (3 Demos Reworked version)
5. 1996 (3 Demos Reworked version)
6. Nobody Moves ((Demo 2006 release - the polished version released in 2016)
7. Out of Range (Get the high quality download, the b-side from the Mene singe)
8. Brother's Song (3 Demos Reworked version)

I still have yet to find a high quality version of sealed to me, so including it on my list just doesn't fit in with the production level

and I hope you're right Sint, as they're obviously my all-time favorite band...it's just hard to tell if I even relate to them anymore. new record will go a long way in finding out if the band and I grew in similar or separate directions...their first four records (esp. tdag and daisy) resonated fully at their respective times

Yeah apparently it's all one track.

Text from the booklet: (supposedly)

"I am unsure what to do from moment to moment. My thoughts are scattered, always. When I see or hear recordings of myself being excited, I am embaraseed, and find myself false and unlikeable. I have realized over time that people close to me identify me as unreliable, and absent, and it is because in times when I am faced with a decision or responsibility that I am unable to shoulder, I isolate myself and ignore attempts at communication from others, instead of explaining my difficulties or asking for help. I am scared of implementing my ideas out of fear that in actuality they will not be perfect, and that they, and I, will subsequently receive harsh judgement. I have outbursts of rage and despair when I am alone. I am attepting to uncreate this reality. I am finding peace in commitment to others, and in hard work, and in the forgiveness that other people show me when they are faced with my faults. Where and when will I die? And then, what will I become? What are the strings that tie me to you, across unknown planes, made of? Or are there even strings? Or am I you? Are you, me?

e4 e5 - Nf3 Nc6 - Bb5 a6 - Ba4 Nf6 - Qe2 b5 - Bb3 Be7 - c3 0-0 - 0-0 d5 -exd5 Nxd5 -Nxe5 Nf4 Qe4 Nxe5 - Qxa8 Qd3 - Bd1 Bh3 14:

Anyways, queen takes pawn... okay?
Bishop takes knight's pawn.
Huh, lovely move. Um... Rook to king one.
I'm sorry, Frank, I think you missed it. Queen to bishop 3, bishop takes queen, knight takes bishop. Mate.
Huh. Yeah, looks like you're right. I resign.
Thank you for a very enjoyable game.
Yeah, thank you.
We love you again."

why just general release when you can do something special for people? in the meantime you have the choice of listening to a shit quality stream, an inevitable rip shortly or waiting for an official release which i highly doubtis that far away

You guys are getting me really hyped here. Starting to listen now.

I don't suppose there're any versions with the 12 songs each being their own tracks?

@mistacrave: same man...even the high I got over the new Yellowcard (pop punk, I know, stfu) or Fleet Foxes came nowhere close to scratching the surface of how I felt when I finally got a quality copy of this...this definitely cements them as my GOAT band, if there ever was a question

If it took Jesse this long to write an album that he thought was worthy to be released, I can't imagine he's realistically going to be able to write another one that he thinks is good enough. This clearly took a shitload out of him.
