like it was nothing
every damn news title
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
this news article will lead to good discussion
Edited because I felt bad
nevermind, I don't feel bad anymore.
I don't even remember my original comment something something sour lemons i think
I love how pissy this news article is lol
yeah this article sucks fuckin ass bet some lame emo cunt wrote it should go pos all his reviews hahahah nerd
hahahah nerd 
great article, fucking top notch title and content
"I love how pissy this news article is lol" 
made an edit to make it more pissy if it makes you guys feel better
I used to love this band. They just piss me off now.
Personally I think it's dumb so many people dished out 50 bucks for an album they haven't heard a single track of. Release a song with an album announcement ffs
Digging: Cloudkicker - Unending
^^^ For real, especially when the singles they released were already so mediocre. I'm willing to bet that this album will be a let down. The band seems to have burnt out long ago.
I fuckin love Brand New, but I also fuckin hate Brand New.
Yeah, I am an Avalanche is the most boring song they've released, easily. Not a good sign
dang wish i had caught this
wow that edit is really really tasteless
Digging: Xiphiidae - Pass Hidingly Seek
yeah this is fucking stupid but they're marketing geniuses at the same time. your guys' fault for buying into it to be fair. W A K E U P S H E E P L E
new album should be music. prob will have songs
ianblxdsoe you should not be allowed to submit news
yeah i probably shouldn't be i'm surprised yall mods haven't eaten my ass yet
cool i guess. i want to hear it but im not really hyped anymore, that point passed a long time ago. plus Nightmare and Mene sucked, so. idk, i dont have high hopes for this.
Digging: Cerebral Rot - Odious Descent Into Decay
New Converge soon, new Brand New soon, I couldn't be less excited about this
Kidding, I'm actually pretty pumped about this despite not paying close attention to either band before.
as long as the album's at least a 3.5 I'll be satisfied
they already released my GOAT, and despite all the titillation this last near-decade, I can't honestly ask much more of them
hope this is better than the god awful cash grab singles that have come out recently
Hopefully it all sounds like Out of Range and Sealed to Me
can't wait for that 3.4 average and the collective hissyfit.
it'll probably be the most-reviewed album on here this year too, knowing us
I thought 'I Am A Nightmare' fucking ruled but was still hesitant to put down 50 quid for this when I had the chance. Glad it's finally coming out though.
'The vinyl sold out faster than crack at a homeless shelter as expected'
They'll press more for sure, this extremely limited press is likely to be some kind of special edition?
Digging: Blanck Mass - Animated Violence Mild
. . . . . . . .
Again, how come there's no title, artwork, tracklist or any pertinent information? I don't get it.
^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.
at least half of sputnik got an erection reading this news. band sucks so much.
Yeh, I can't wait for 5 user reviews and 2 staff/contrib reviews to pop up for this the day it's released.
Fuck them for liking something I don't!!
article title proves some puns just never get old
I'm fully torqued
Converge and Brand New album news back to back in two days? My world is fucking spinning
Best. Headline. Ever.
Really hope Sealed To Me is on the record
Man, don't play with me like this.
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.
Digging: Lord Belial - Enter The Moonlight Gate
What if Mene and I Am A Nightmare are on this album? Wouldn't that be a cop out?
That edit lol.
I really hope they don't explore I Am a Nightmare's sound too much on the record. Did not dig that track
Digging: Shadow of Intent - Melancholy
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.
band is so hilariously overrated
Damn I was hoping this was a new Brand New Brand New record not a new Brand New record.
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
Digging: Ultravox - Vienna
If they released a new self titled album would the title be Brand New Brand New Brand New
"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
By the way, that record was $45.
Brand New can fuck off.
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.
these guys will probably still churn out a good record but they're a bunch of cocknozzles for doing it this way
Digging: Tool - Fear Inoculum
they're one of the last bands on the planet that need to build hype in advance
Fuck, they changed the homeless crack line?
I Am a Nightmare is pretty ok. Mene was fucking garbage tho
Digging: Strange Ranger - Remembering the Rockets
. . . .
Mene was fantastic. Most brand new like song since TDAG. To me Nightmare was weak. But still good
Mene sounds like they sampled their drummer playing on trashcans in 96kbps, then copy-pasted a bad Your Favourite Weapon b-side on top of it
You've got it backwards Rowan. If the drums are sampled in Mene then the lead guitar and gocals are sampled in I Am a Nightmare
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
Coming out of the ground, it's kinda freaking me out. Ya know?
Sealed To Me and Out of Range need to be on the new one in their place for sure
I Am a Nightmare is nothing special but it's catchy and reminds me of Deja Entendu
I like Out of Range because it is basically Modest Mouse
i'd take mene on the album, but i am a nightmare is just too average to be on a brand new record
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)
Digging: Off With Their Heads - Be Good
that would be a hella disappointing record
also rather unlikely
their new one is unlikely to live up to expectations so I think disappointment is imminent anyway
i mean i'd at least hope sealed to me was on there as it's better than any of the others you listed
and forreal i dont think it'll be disappointing, they've taken their time with this one
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
was really disappointed with this band live... based on how enthused they seemed live, I'm not surprised that they were just like "here, it's our new record y'all wanted. bye"
@Sowing thank you for the only useful comment in this thread, going to give that playlist a listen.
whats wrong with the other comments?
the reworked version of Missing You is... so bad tho
there's a live cut of Sealed to Me which sounds 100% studio to me
Yeah man, people just be talking. Noting wrong with that.
I've seen them live twice, and both times they were definitely into it, so that sucks to hear
THE TICKET PRESALE SOLD OUT IN 5 SECONDS AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Y
'@Sowing thank you for the only useful comment in this thread, going to give that playlist a listen.'
Y u hate
shit this just got interesting
TL;DR: The first 500 people to order the $45 vinyl got a CD mailed to them that may or may not be the new album. It's 61 minutes long so maybe double album
wtf is that, I read that whole thing and its ridiculous
This is not a drill, the entire album (60+ minutes) is on that fucking cd.
The albums gotta drop today/tomorrow
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."
Classsic Lacey I guess lol
it's live streaming here
can somebody screen record that shit and upload the vid or something cause there's no way people are gonna get into that group while the live stream is going on
nvm just got in lmfao
Holy shit yeah? Or holy shit nah?
lol the quality is what you'd expect. what a shitty way to listen to an album for the first time
holy shit yeah
quality sucks but the music is pretty fucking good. WAY different than the singles
The album is called "Science Fiction". Some track names include "Out of Mana", "In the Water" and "Desert". 'll try to update as it gets further along.
^did you get one of the 500 copies Green Baron?
Nope, I'm listening to the live stream
bro what do you think so far? Just on first impression, the songwriting seems a little bit uninspired. I think the initial shock of actually getting into the group and watching the livestream has worn off haha
ok this livestream is so low quality but this sounds pretty good
this one sounds like some nirvana/pixies ass shit, its aight i guess
The instrumentation itself is pretty decent but the songwriting doesn't seem all that great so far
ok it gets better, bit of a slow intro to that track
My fave track so far was the one that was playing when I got into the group, don't know what it's called
the first few I heard were the best, the last two were alright but not awesome
lmao this one sounds like the black keys
What a stupid fucking way to release music. Did they fucking overnight the cds? lol.
Not sure how to feel about this track lol
this album is definitely a lot more Out of Range and not like I Am A Nightmare at all
well this noodling part is better than the rest of the song
on;ly tuned in for the last two but theyve both had kinda underwhelming intros then got better
sounds pretty interesting, cant wait for an actual high quality stream
I think I've heard around ~six? songs. Wasn't really paying attention at first
Out of Mana
In the Water
451 - CURRENT
This looks like tracklisting so far, missed the first few
okay this one sounds promising
ok this one sounds like its gonna be a classic
I can't get any details about this one's title fuck
hands down the best song so far.
Track is called Turning Up Your Gravity and Pulling Me in..?
this almost feels sun kil moon-like in places
there was another song sorta like this one before I joined
I definitely heard I think ~3 new songs before I started taking down titles
one of them went "let's play Nagasaki...[something]...until we vaporize?" something like that
I was thinking this was Red House Painters influenced
brb, checking the bay lol.
apparently this is the artwork, i really like it https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DHcp-AzXUAUZTep.jpg
and now it's done
that last track was crazy good
Are they really dumb enough to just send people cd's of this now? How long until the torrent is up. Is this just a distraction or what?
where tf are you guys hearing this?
Sowing, live video is archived in the group. Request to join and you can see the full thing
Deja Entinder group on Facebook
"Are they really dumb enough to just send people cd's of this now? How long until the torrent is up."
an hour, tops.
i don't get it, why are they doing this if it's supposed to come out in october
After all this time you guys are listening to the new music for the first time on a livestream? What are you doiing??
Also don't be ashamed to leave your thoughts on Deja Entinder instead of here
"Also don't be ashamed to leave your thoughts on Deja Entinder instead of here"
lol got 'em
Any chance this is different to the album coming out later in the year? They've had long enough that two albums isn't impossible surely?
rumor has it the october release is a re-recording of tdagarim with fanboy jerkoff noises inserted into the background. sounds promising.
Maybe it'll be like when 10K days came out and alot of people thought that wasn't the "real" album and that the "real" one would be coming out any day
wtf there's no stream did I miss it
help me hong tam
or this is the original version of the album that they scrapped
and the real one is still coming out soon
They said they had an album that they scrapped?
Sowing the stream just ended, but I think you can replay live streams shortly after they've completed
@supremejelly yeah, it was called daisy. they released it anyway.
Confused as to why nobody has ripped the audio from the CD yet
if they sent out 500 copies it's only a matter of time
Go to the videos, Sowing.
I joined and found it but can't listen until later.
yeah not sure I want to hear the live stream actually...I'm debating now whether to just indulge or to wait for a high quality somewhere
fucking a man
I'm going to wait until later anyway, hoping it gets torrented. I'm getting pissed that this stupid shit is generating more interest for me lol.
that's "fuckin' a", man - sorry that could have read very weird
fucking a man 
all i can say is listening to this back for the tracks i missed, none of you need to worry about this being super disappointing, it is very good
what is even happening
craziest day in a while
This is one of those things that if more bands did it would be fucking annoying, but in this case I find it interesting
no, it's fucking annoying
just make it available for everyone to buy in perfect quality already
If they did this like 10 years ago and news surfaced way more slowly it may have been better. This is creating a sort of mania though lol.
I can only imagine this is what the Leaked Demos 2006 were like
nah i find it charming
if i had got one of those cd's i'd be freaking out so much and it would be awesome
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
anyway we've waited eight years what difference does it make
New album is up to be rated and ofcourse there's already this 5 soundoff:
"i think im actually crying rn this is the best and all i heard were 3 tracks off a shit quality stream"
Most sput thing ever
i aim to please
pretty sure BN is trolling super hard and are going to just drop the album tomorrow or something
Brand New - Science NATION.
If they do release this really soon and in reasonable quantities then I think the whole out-of-the-blue announcement with ridiculously overpriced preorders will be justified and, in hindsight, really fucking funny
I'm too busy at work to deal with all of this rn
I'm too emotionally fragile right now to deal with this tbqfh
Listened to most of the stream by now. Very loosely, the album sounds most similar to Daisy mixed with some more dreamy dynamics and effects
I've only listened to it once, but I got the impression that it was somewhere between TDAG and Daisy
Is there somewhere to listen to the stream at least? This whole thing is killing more than it should. 😐
Digging: Oso Oso - Basking in the glow
yeah it's definitely a combination of daisy, tdag, and deja
the intensity/guitars of daisy, the vocals/lyrics (of what I can tell, very grainy) of tdag, the melodies/hooks of deja
even in this god awful shitty live stream it's at least a 4/5
oh my goooooooood please someone let me hear this
Digging: Ghost Atlas - All Is In Sync, and There's Nothing Left to Sing
KingdomLeaks is currently going through the process of converting the album to all formats - so 320 rips will pop up in the near future. Make sure when you use filecrypt that you un-check the "use our download manager" option because that's just asking for trouble.
"the intensity/guitars of daisy, the vocals/lyrics (of what I can tell, very grainy) of tdag, the melodies/hooks of deja"
I am fucking ok with this.
Bout to listen to this in high quality oh s h i t
Guys I'm as excited as any of you but we cannot be posting any leaks/downloads here.
If I see it I'm deleting it [and trust me, it pains me to say that because I want to hear it badly]
If you poke around on reddit, its pretty easy to find links to it. On sites that don't slow down the speed of your download like filecrypt.
Behold the thankless sacrifice of a mod.
Lol I've already listened to the album twice now, good stuff
There are a lot of links to google drives with flac files of it on reddit!
listening rn and this is so much better than I Am A Nightmare etc, feels like TDAG meets Daisy so far holy fuuck
I'd say its more Fight Off Your Demons/Daisy.
It sounds a good amount like Fight off your demons tbh
yeah I actually didn't think about that, it's def more FOYD/Daisy than TDAG/Daisy
sounds pretty good btw
yo, I'm gonna buy tickets to the show in Boston when they go on sale tomorrow. They wouldn't sell the majority of the tickets during the presale right? Regardless, I'm gonna be on ticketmaster at 11:59, refreshing my page non-stop lmao
I'm going to one of the Brooklyn nights for sure
Who knows haha. I just want a physical copy! And tickets too if that's still a thing
I know I'm gonna end up sitting in the way back since those will be the only tickets that aren't fucking hundreds of dollars but I'm okay with that. I just know that I'm going to hate myself forever if I miss the chance to see them, since they may be winding down their career soon
My bad Sowing. Fixed
"the intensity/guitars of daisy, the vocals/lyrics (of what I can tell, very grainy) of tdag, the melodies/hooks of deja" [3? Infinity, whatever]
"even in this god awful shitty live stream it's at least a 4/5"
sowing gonna make me lose my mind, I'm just catching up on this madness
I need to hear this!
Im fairly surprised by the reaction this is getting. I was pretty sure it was gonna be an overhyped disappointment.
idk how good this stream is but it's from r/brandnew https://soundcloud.com/kimburlyburly/brand-new-science-fiction
Sometimes he can't get it out, ya know?
my god it's happened
so excited to hear
this shits all over the devil and god
it's real: this is really good
the headphones and HQ really help
I downloaded the 61 minute song and it seems pretty high quality, is there a track list anywhere to follow along while listening?
Digging: Bon Iver - i,i
last track is still absolutely unreal
bet sorority noise are writing lyrics about it already
Listening to the soundcloud stream and it's incredible
@Talons - No tracklisting as of now. We know the names of 5 songs thanks to data gotten off Shazam before the album apparently vanished, but don't know the order of them either.
to me the track names don't even really matter
1. (0:00 - 6:16)
2. (6:17 - 10:01)
3. (10:02 - 14:35)
4. (14:36 - 17:52)
5. (17:53 - 22:45)
6. (23:30 - 28:55)
7. (28:56 - 32:34)
8. (32:35 - 33:45) Out of Mana
9. (33:46 - 40:34) In the Water
10. (40:35 - 44:11) Desert
11. (44:12 - 48:07) No Control
12. (48:08 - 53:00) 451
13. (53:01 - 61:28)
this sounds like the true successor to tdag everyone wanted
it's like daisy's less aggressive cousin
OH MAN THIS IS THE SHIT!
Yeah the soundcloud stream is good.
Thank you, Green Baron Sir
Just started Out of Mana, so far I really dig the first 2 for sure. The rest has been awesome as well, but those first 2 hot damn!
''No Control' is fucking amazing
there's sound bites and little instrumental jam sessions bridging every track, not sure which one those belong to officially but it should be close enough
Yeah you've got it pretty spot on
fuck the soundcloud stream just went down
Baron there are plenty of downloads. I got a 320kbps rip from filecrypt
On the third track. That second song was crazy good
Uh-oh. I'm streaming it rn.
On the third track. That second song was crazy good 
fuck this acoustic track is great too
every second is incredible
not sure what track it is but it keeps alternating between acoustic picking and coarse screams and I'm in heaven
could never be heaven without you
this is surely AOTY
sorry manchester orchestra, but you can't beat brand new
yeah this album is a standing ovation
only about 20 minutes into it, and it's amazing. I am nightmare and mene had me worried, but this is exactly what I was hoping for.
Digging: Landon Tewers - Withdrawals
y'all, I'm not exaggerating when I say that this is the most joy that I've felt in as long as I can remember
This knocks off Lorde (5), Fleet Foxes (5), and MO (4.7) without even trying for me
I'd give it a 6 if I could
pretty easy to two 2 of the lamest albums of the year off the pedestal
I already know Sowing's review for this will be glorious.
It's gonna be so good it will take me 8 years to write it
I had been thinking about taking a stab at reviewing the new Brand New record whenever it came out a while back, but yeah I'm going to stand back and let Sowing take the stage on this one. I could never do this record the justice it deserves
"A fourth straight masterpiece" would be an understatement of a summary!
@SowingSeason I would expect nothing less. Your review of daisy helped me finally fall in love with that record.
How can they possibly deliver on all this hype, that's just insane
NO THE SOUNDCLOUD STREAM GOT TAKEN DOWN AND IDK IF I FINISHED THE ALBUM SINCE IT WAS IN ANOTHER TAB
the album is fan service as fuck. sounds like a combination of everything they've done but vying for the crown as their best
i'm halfway through this and it's a 5
clover when did you get so sarcy? it dont suit ya
idk man, but they clearly weren't fucking around waiting eight years to release this. If that paragraph that was on the CD insert was Jesse's original writing, then it seems that he did a pretty damn impeccable job of crafting nothing but absolute perfection for everybody who was putting the pressure on him.
it may be fan service and/or vying for the crown, but either way they nailed it
i'm halfway through this and it's a 5 
sounds like deja and the demos had a baby, then that baby grew up and went through some traumatic shit and got all dark and riffy
that's my entire review hope you guys liked it
i honestly don't even like brand new as much as most sput users, but this album is a hard 5. i hope that says something to you guys. already writing a review, dont care if it gets taken down
"already writing a review, dont care if it gets taken down"
still gotta wait for an official release date
in the water though...wow
is it not an official release if there were 500 of them shipped out to fans?
also this is wonderful, fuck
though if you guys take down that, how come you guys didnt take down the countless leak reviews that have already come out this year? like the ones for Flower Boy and The Peace and The Panic which were just from this past month??? seems extremely unfair.
is it not an official release if there were 500 of them shipped out to fans? 
"is it not an official release if there were 500 of them shipped out to fans?"
didn't think of it that way...I may consult with my fellow mods but I have a feeling there still needs to be an official release date. eh who knows we can figure that out later. right now is just a time to be happy.
Can't believe you actually thought they wouldn't deliver Sowing
'is it not an official release if there were 500 of them shipped out to fans?'
nah, think of it like a promo copy.
Not that I care lol.
love the record and awaiting the rabid fanboy threads
i have no idea what the track list looks like or what song i'm on but fuck me this is great. this was not how i expected my day to go.
oh trust me i am happy. i mean i guess i'll just post it elsewhere but i really would appreciate it if you guys didnt take it down, i was thinking about having it out tonight. do you want me to pm you the review or something before i post then come to a verdict after reading it?? because i'm really passionate about this review so far like i've never been so concentrated when writing before.
Lit Me Up
Can't Get It Out
Could Never Be Heaven
Out of Mana
In the Water
Anybody know if there are any rips with the tracks separated yet?
@ian, hang on just looking for some perspective from jom etc
you should take time to actually digest it anyway before reviewing so anything posted today (maybe even tomorrow) is probs rushed
PREORDERS ARE UP
If you preordered yesterday or today you get a download. It's officially out boys
Is there any Daisy sound in the new album? If it's another TDAG I'll skip it.
lol that site is shitting out so hard.
i understand that completely. i've already listened about 2 and a half times and i plan to give it at least 5 before i finalize and post it but i rarely ever give second drafts to reviews. thank you for taking it into consideration makes me feel a lot better lol
Here's a link: http://procrastinatemusictraitors.limitedrun.com/products/598731-brand-new-science-fiction
whoa, daisy callback with the preacher
If someone pre-orders, let me know if you get a dl right away.
And it comes with a download for the album 👍🏻
What a fuckin ride.
way too hype
ordered my CD...comes with automatic download OMG
Auto dl!?!?!?! LIKE YOU HAVE IT NOW? Pls confirm.
yep officially released guys
I went from not giving a fuck about brand new ever again 3 days ago to hyped to the max. I'm a fickle little bitch.
I paid 19 to get it shipped priority totally worth
i swear to god if they sell out of vinyl before i get paid tomorrow
so can i have a go on releasing a review within today/tomorrow Sowing???
POST THAT SHIT, IAN
WE NEED A PLACE TO DISCUSS
ian post in whenever ya, it official
i havent been paid yet so i cant buy it yet fuckfuckfuck can someone hmu with a file with the individual tracks??? would be sosososo appreciated, if not i can wait but would be greatly appreciated so i can mention tracks in greater detail instead of going fully conceptual with the review like i already have
do whatever you want now ian
dont b surprised when ppl diss u for "posting too soon" but I agree with Kris. for the greater good
i'm going hahahah i write fast but i don't want to sacrifice quality for speed, even for how fast i write i'm already going at full caliber lol
anybody know what the hell is going on at the end of No Control?
Just ordered my cd. So excited.
Oh my, this is even better than TDAG
Won't let me download to my phone. Weak.
i actually enjoy this more than The Devil and God. it has the attitude and atmosphere of Daisy with a lot of traits from The Devil and God.
Welp, just finished.
Goddamn that was good.
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?
wow I havn't pre-ordered a CD in forever, but I just did so I could get the download!
at this point I've listened to it 3 times straight
I had things to do today but just didn't
honestly I won't have a review ready for this for a while...I want to get it exactly right and have time to dig into the lyrics
'I don't suppose there're any versions with the 12 songs each being their own tracks?'
There will be soon. Pre-orders have instant download. Rips will be up asap.
I went from not giving a fuck about brand new ever again 3 days ago to hyped to the max. 
quick, i'm 49 minutes into the album, what song is this?? IT RULES
the one Sinternet described as the Black Keys track
my guess is No Control based on the tracklist
yeah it's definitely 451 then
oh goddamnit, I don't have time to download and listen before work
expect me back tomorrow losing my shit in the best possible way
ill be losing my shit for days
@Kris: I have no doubt you're listening to '451'
Today went from nothing special to the biggest emotional rollercoaster I've ever experienced
Could Never Be Heaven is a fucking masterpiece of a song. I expect I'm gonna be saying that with a lot of these 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
Still not going to listen to this band
your loss tbh
Still in disbelief that they announced this record two days ago without the slightest hint leading up to it, only to just drop it out of the fucking blue two days later
It's because they wanted this to happen (i.e. You all to cream yourselves preemptively)
if this does end up being their last album, it's a hell of a way to go. damn.
a band this good should never be allowed to stop making music
but if they do, then I agree
Get them excited, remind them you exist, give them hope, then BAM give it to them
This is perfect
so you're not going to listen but you're going to give the album a 2, boney?
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.
I'll delete the troll rating in time
"Get them excited, remind them you exist, give them hope, then BAM give it to them"
so a regular album release cycle?
Or right now if y'all're gonna get your panties in a bunch
just waiting for the contrarian doof 2.5 "guys this is good I get it, but he just tries way too hard you can hear it in his voice, so insincere"
He'll take a break from his honeymoon just to give it a listen
there's gonna be a compote 2 review for sure
to be fair, there was a pretty legit rumor that this was dropping soon-ish so I'm not that surprised that it did
also fuck Doof
Wow, the hype is huge. Can't wait to check this out when I get off work tonight.
holy crap. just like that. preordered.
"This whiny wanker with his heart out on his sleeve like the bloke has something to cry about. Maybe get a real job you tosser. Such a sham."
-zak, as soon as he can boot up his HP Millennium Edition PC and figure out how to download.
hahaha spot on
saved for posterity
won't last but prob won't dip below a 4.2
Maybe I will listen to this idk
i can't believe they just dropped it like this
I'm lucky I was home all day or else I would have missed it
this is such a vast and epic album i'm absolutely in love. about to start 5th listen, on my 4th paragraph currently. should be up tonight possibly depending how bad i want to keep my daily review streak going hahahah
keep up the good work (;
THEY DROPPED THE WHOLE ALBUM FUCK. Finally after all their teasing and pretentiousness they drop a massive surprise. Can't wait to jam
writing a review 2 hours after it comes out oh boy
So is it going to be "officially" released soon or are they waiting for October?
It's official now, but physical orders aren't out until October.
Is it going to be on Spotify etc though?
probably, and yeah i found the lyrics online and these are sososososo well written especially compared to their older works. lacey is far less arrogant than he appeared at times; he's being legitimate and portraying an open book even moreso this time around.
Okay, I see you Brand New. Fucking 137
Digging: All Get Out - No Bouquet
Just purchased it, this is exactly what my ears needed today.
Amazing album, AOTY contender easily. They really matured since the previous decade.
one of the funniest album rollouts I have seen in a long time, this was beautiful
All sorts of fucked up.
Yeah pretty good way to fuck with your fans lol
ian where'd you find the lyrics at?
genius has most of them: https://genius.com/albums/Brand-new/Science-fiction
damn, i checked genius like an hour and a half ago and they weren't up yet. thanks!
if anyone gives a shit, i'm on my concluding paragraph. gonna have someone read it through and then post hopefully tonight :-)
Is that Isaac Brock on Same Logic/Teeth?
Yeah I hear late 90s/early 2000s Modest Mouse influence at times
finished the review, sent it to some for proofreading.
""This whiny wanker with his heart out on his sleeve like the bloke has something to cry about. Maybe get a real job you tosser. Such a sham."

well, you weren't far off
I was almost as hyped for zak's reaction to all this as I was for the actual album and he just copypastes a much funnier soundoff over from TDAGARIM? miss me with that weak shit zak, you're slippin
yea try harder zak. major letdown
How the hell does an album leak this fast? They announced the album just 3 days ago and now it's already out there?
It's not leaked, it's out
Brand New has always had problems with leaks
It didn't leak. They released it, the digital version that is.
They aren't dumb enough though to send out 500 CDs and expect it not to leak. That was the first major sign that the record was going to drop real soon.
Ah, I see. Weird way to release an album though
Also this is probably the most overrated band on sputnik of all time
thank you for your most important input
Get fucked. Get absolutely fucked. How is this so goddamn good?
Sowing's hype for this album is so pure I love it.
Even if I don't end up loving the album it's genuinely heartwarming seeing y'all get so excited together.
Are these guys emos?
It was a much simpler time......
Digging: Black Sabbath - Headless Cross
"Sowing's hype for this album is so pure"
Just read through this entire thread again, so much fun reliving the chaos and excitement that happened that day. Still can't believe something as highly anticipated as this actually lived up to the hype.
Yeah, a shame this whole moment is now tainted because this was hands down the biggest hype moment in my life musically speaking
Tainted to the world, but not tainted for me. It sucks for sure, but as far as I can tell, the dude changed and made things right longgg before any of us knew about anything
True in the sense that his actions occurred closer to the Deja era; still stirs an odd feeling though. The music is still special to me as is this moment, even if Lacey turned out to be a bit of a creep.
NEW SONG LEAK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYDHWl8y320
So much for 18 forever
bump just so people see this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYDHWl8y320 ~ new song
Still haven't heard this but I skimmed the lyrics and they are pretty touching
"So much for 18 forever"
Well technically it was released in 2018 so the 2000-2018 timeline still stands (assuming this is a parting offer)
I actually like the song a lot
