    Soooo the latest rumor I heard is that while on their mini-tour, Jesse Lacey said they were writing, but they didn't want to release anything because all the songs they were writing were sad and they didn't want to bum people out.
    tehe Silly Laceface. IT'S LIKE HE'S NEVER EVEN HEARD OF BRAND NEW.
    Yeah what up thread I think a revival is in order. File

    I could pretty much live with Brand New never releasing anything ever again if they didn't want to. I mean I'd be seriously upset, but if they all wanted to quit music and become used car salesmen or stay-at-home-dads or whatever, I'd be ultimately okay with that.

    But they're (supposedly) writing. They're writing. So now I absolutely must hear their new stuff or I will die, obviously. Basically I don't feel like they have an obligation to write, but I do feel like they have an obligation to share what they write. Even if it's sad. Especially if it's sad. Brand New is not for laughing. Except for the YFW promo DVD. And "Magazines". tehe

    Okay, just wanted to share this post summing up the state of Brand New at the moment.

    Totally not saving this thread from deletion due to inactivity. That would be highly unethical. Whistle

    Bringing this thread back, woo! Dance

    I've only been a fan for about 2-ish years, but I enjoy Brand New. A lot. So much that I spent almost $200 on a one-day ticket (Saturday, to be exact) for this year's Lollapalooza because those dudes are experts at sporadic touring and you never know when you'll get the chance to see them live.

    ^I did the same thing two years ago when they were at Riot Fest in Chicago, and it was honestly the best show I've ever been to, I was covered head to toe in mud XD

    -Clearly- I like Brand New quite a lot. I've gotten the chance to see them 3 times in the past 2 years, hopefully the 4th will be at Summerfest in Milwaukee next Wednesday. I've liked them for a long time, since they released Sic Transit Gloria...Glory Fades and the music video was in heavy circulation on Fuse, but I didn't really start listening ti anything else by them until about 3 years ago, and my life has been ultimately better ever since In Love

    I know no one has posted in this thread recently, but just an FYI: Jesse Lacey was outed as a sexual predator and an overall POS. And though he addressed this issue and attempted to offer an apology, the statement was entirely self-involved, offered excuses and justifications for his actions, and mentioned nothing of the physical/psychological trauma he enacted on his victim.

    Brand New was my favorite band, but they mean nothing to me now. I have no time for sexual abuse apologists.

    Are you apart of the Deja Tinder FB group for BN fans? A lot of people have turned their back on Jesse but not on the music. Brand New made so many of us happy and helped a lot of us out - I can never turn my back on their music, it was my way of coping with life for so many years.

    I haven't come across that group! Thanks for telling me about it.

    I'm not sure if I can go back to listening to the music. I can't separate Jesse from the words he wrote, because I can't help but think that maybe, some of the songs were written about his actions. And every time I think of my favorite Brand New songs, I think of him, and I get disgusted. For me, making an exception for the music is like still supporting him.

    I feel the same :/ I wish I was able to separate the art from the artist, but so far I just can't, and everything Brand-New-related just feels tainted. They were my favorite band and finding out about Jesse just felt like such a punch in the gut. I'm actually mad at Jesse for ruining my favorite music. (More for what he did, obviously, but like did you have to ruin the music for me on top of that?!) I'm hoping eventually I'll reconcile with it in some way and be able to listen to them at least a bit; so far I haven't been able to listen to any of their songs. I think part of what makes it so difficult is that I've been into them since not long after YFW came out and I was just this naive kid, and it's really upsetting to think that while I was blithely playing their albums on repeat, Jesse was doing these things to girls around my age.
