Genuinely sad about this, hopefully they go out with a bang
Digging: Porches. - The House
lol its gonna be really bad
I've already waited 7 years, what's one more?
"hopefully they go out with a bang" 
love Brand New but not really bummed about this, new songs have been disappointing and Daisy is the perfect album to go out on in my opinion, Noro is the perfect swan song
Digging: Locktender - Friedrich
also shame on whoever submitted this article for not mentioning the awesome news that they'll be playing TDAGARIM in its entirety on this fall's tour
delete this band

This is the most Brand New thing to ever happen
>> also shame on whoever submitted this article for not mentioning the awesome news that they'll be playing TDAGARIM in its entirety on this fall's tour
because clicking the link and reading the letter is v. difficult
these guys need to have some beers and chill out a little
ashcrash9 I did mention it but for whatever reason it's been edited out, and the title I gave the article has been altered too
How fucking long are they gonna make us wait jfc
"because clicking the link and reading the letter is v. difficult"
obviously it's not, but it seems odd to edit that piece of redeeming good news out of an otherwise disappointing statement. I can understand simplifying the headline though.
W/e man, executive decisions are yours, I just don't see why the full overview of the statement couldn't be posted.
EDIT: alright, thanks
really no need to be a dick about it
Luckily, I already saw TDAG live, the songs that matter anyway.
Kinda happy with this decision. New songs so far have been underwhelming, hope they rework the stuff and present us something nice as goodbye.
Band sucks and is the definition of pretentious.
Inb4 one million comments
what a bunch of fucking assclowns
they're no better than tool
how is brand new pretentious lol.
Cool with the delay
What the fuck I'll never see Not the Sun, Arrows, Bangkok, Handcuffs, or Untitled live
Now I really regret not getting tickets for this tour. Fuck, if I knew that they'd be playing TDAG in its entirety ahead time, I would do anything humanly possible to get the tickets when they were announced.
I saw them in London last year and they played pretty much all of TDAG anyway. It would've been cool to see them play handcuffs I guess as its a personal favourite but I got all the prime cuts.
Tickets for the UK leg are super expensive, and I'd have to sit through Biffy Clyro, and only the shittiest of seats are left. Still, seeing DGD in November
Huh crazy! I saw them at Alexandra Palace last year so it was all standing and it was reasonably priced and it was their only UK show of the year I'm pretty sure too!
Ohhhhh they're supporting Biffy nm
good make the album as good as it can be i can wait.
"This is the most Brand New thing to happen" [x10000]
What the shitting fuck
Digging: Camila Cabello - Camila
Fuck them soooo hard. My love/hate relationship with these guys continues.
I grew old in the time it has taken them to NOT release another album
damn another year waiting on Chinese Democracy
i'm perfectly fine with the delay if it'll make the album better
Yawn, this has gotten so old
don't fall asleep now
 This makeshift playlist can be made by anyone with all their unreleased songs. This order flows well and can work as a 5th full album: 1. Good Man, 2. 1996, 3. I Am A Nightmare, 4. Brother's Song, 5. Missing You, 6. Mene, 7. Sealed To Me (some great live versions available on YT to pull from), 8. Nobody Moves, 9. Battalions, 10. Out of Range, 11. Fork and Knife
"Band sucks and is the definition of pretentious."
Nah b. Nah.
delaying albums to ensure quality is pretentious fun little tidbit.
Would love to hear that logic applied to other forms of media. "Delayed the game to smooth out bugs? Pssshhh. Pretentious fucks."
"these guys need to have some beers and chill out a little" (2)
have always loved their music, but i think they take themselves way too seriously
super bummed i'll miss seeing them stateside, fingers crossed they come to japan
also, the reworked 1996 track is sooooo good
Lol at thinking this would come out this year. Not a chance guys.
This is for the best. Album was shaping up to be a hodge-podge of conflicting musical styles.
It's because Brand New is washed up and irrelevant. They're never going to be able to make good music again
this is pretty funny. gonna try out that playlist Talons posted tho
I actually kind of like I Am A Nightmare in this playlist, and Sealed to Me was/is? gonna be the best song on this new album by a fucking mile. Mene still sucks but I might keep this order it's a good jam
Yeah it's a nice playlist to keep all their songs in one place that aren't from the four studio albums.
Sealed to Me>Mene>I am a Nightmare. All the singles work better in an album setting like this imo
"they are not yet content enough to release it as it is."
TFW you realize their next album will include ska and reggae.
also i've never seen them play limousine before so i guess it's good they're gonna play the whole album
Super exited to hear they will play all of The Devil and God. Anyone else going to the Rochester show on the 13th?
hoping when its finally released it will have that modest mouse vibe that Out of Range had, also come to Australia daaaaawgs
They close with you won't know anyway so I'm good. I'll just keep waiting for them to come back to Aus
TDAGARIM tour sounds epic though. But ofcourse they're not coming to Europe (except for UK) -.-
i have only one question: how does this letter confirm their break up? Only this 'What’s left should be a strange demise' line?
I don't see why ya'll are getting pissed at them for wanting to ensure this last album is gonna be a good as it can be, would you rather they released some rushed half assed last money grab before fucking off to Bangkok?
Because they're probably gonna over-polish it and make it bad
"Because they're probably gonna over-polish it and make it bad"
This is Brand New we're talking about
Yeah, i'm afraid they can finally kiss my ass - just be a normal band and either release music with some consistency or don't detail every one of your lazy ass whims
Digging: Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile - Lotta Sea Lice
so the most exciting thing they'll have done all year is play not the sun live
Well if it means the album will be better than a slew of re recorded demos from a decade ago and interpol b sides, than okay
Digging: AFI - Burials
2000-2018... They will literally be 18 forever.
People are not calling them pretentious because they delayed their album. People call them pretentious because everything they have been saying for the past 2 years has reeked of self importance and pretentiousness.
Seriously, Brand New has been making Radiohead look humble lately.
radiohead is pretty humble
hopefully they'll tour the UK
Well, it's been a good run. The TDAG show sounds really cool for those able to attend it.
Yeah, TDAG is my favorite album ever still - but I've seen all of those songs live. Sure, they'll be great in the album's original sequence but who fucking cares - just release a new EP or something. I'm with the people crying pretentious and self-important
They should delay it forever. This band is dicks.
sucky post ire
Band is gr8. You're dix brah
the salt in this thread makes sci fi that much sweeter
Haha seconded - I came back here just to juxtapose the saltiness. Found my own salty post just a few up in fact
