Formed on Long Island, NY, Brand New appeared on the punk pop scene in 2000. Consisting of drummer BrianLane,vocalist/guitaristJesseLacey, bassist Garrett Tierney, and guitarist Vin Accardi, the band began making a name for itself onthelocal scene with a self-releasedfour-song demo and shows with bands like Midtown and Glassjaw. In 2001, they issued theirfirstrecord, Your Favorite Weapon, onTripleCrown, produced by friend Mike Sapone. Lacey's clever and cutting lyricssprinkledthe album, which produced the semi- hit "Jude Lawand aSemester Abroad", and more touring with Taking Back Sundayand Finchfollowed. Proving to be more than just another punk popband,thegroup made something of a stylistic leap withDejaEntendu, a decidedly mature follow-up, recorded with Steve Haigler (Pixies,BlakeBabies) and released in summer2003 torave reviews from critics and fans alike. Music videos for "The Quiet Things That No One EverKnows"and "Sic TransitGloria ...Glory Fades" found constant airplay on MTV, while earning Brand New slots with New FoundGlory,DashboardConfessional, andblink-182. By fall, as the band's notable underground following continued to grow in strides, they inked a deal with Dreamworks, whichlaterled tothemfinding a home on Interscope following the former label's buyout. Touring eventually slowed to a halt as BrandNewholed themselves uptowork on their third full-length and major label debut. After an extended quiet spell — little tonointerviews or updates came from theband'scamp for quite sometime — Brand New finally emerged in the summer of 2006forU.S. headlining dates, their first nationwide tour inthreeyears. The highly-anticipated The Devil and God are RagingInsideMe appeared in November 2006 to great reception, critical andfanalike. In October 2008, it was announced by theband thatthey were recording vocals for a new album. In late September of 2009, theirnewalbum, Daisy, was released. Ittook aheavier approach compared to their previous albums, taking more influence from grungeandpost-hardcore. Becomingtheirhighest charting album yet, it debuted at number 6 on the Billboard 200. Since then, new Brand New material has been far and few between. The band began writing new material in 2009, shortlyafterthe releaseofDaisy. It wasn't until June of 2014 that the band had officially entered the studio to begin writingandrecording new material.BrandNew has released two singles, Mene in April of 2015 and I Am the Nightmare in Mayof2016, and a remaster of their 2006leakeddemos, Fight Off Your Demons, titled Leaked Demos 2006. A newalbumhad been scheduled to debut sometime in 2016. InJuneof 2016, the band announced two new shirt designs, containingthephrase "2000- 2018", creating speculations of a 2018 break-up. In 2017, the band finally released a new album, Science Fiction, which once again was hailed by fans and critics alike.Whiletouringinsupport of the album, Lacey reportedly confirmed that the Brand new was planning to end its existence as a bandlate in2018. However,inlate 2017, Lacey was accused of sexual misconduct with two underage fans in the mid-2000's. Laceythenissued a public apology ontheband's Facebook page. Shortly thereafter, the band cut short their Science Fictiontour.Presently, the band's future is uncertain. « hide
