NEW YORK HOMECOMING IN NOVEMBER
Brand New have announced the release of their new full-length album, Daisy, out September 22 on the band's own Procrastinate Music Traitors, in partnership with DGC/Interscope. The band also announced a homecoming event featuring a headlining performance at Nassau Coliseum on November 27 in Uniondale, NY. The band will be joined by a slew of distinguished guest artists they handpicked to share this special occasion with them including a performance by friends and fellow Long Islanders' Glassjaw. Playing the Coliseum is a true homecoming for these four young men who grew up in the area and spent their formative years watching countless concerts and hockey games at the venue.
Formed in 2000, Brand New – Jesse Lacey, Vincent Accardi, Brian Lane and Garrett Tierney – have established critical acclaim for their innovative and boundary breaking music. The band's head-turning 2001 debut, Your Favorite Weapon (Triple Crown Records), was followed by 2003's gold-certified sophomore album Deja Entendu, which Rolling Stone called a "masterpiece" and the New York Times proclaimed "extraordinary." In 2006 the band released their critically acclaimed major-label debut, The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me (Interscope), and earned raves for yet another chapter in their genre defying career from SPIN, Blender, NY Times, LA Times and Billboard among others.
Now the band is set to take us down another path with their defiant new album, Daisy. The new record features a collection of songs produced by longtime friend Mike Sapone and mixed by Dave Sardy (Rage Against the Machine, Cold War Kids, Slayer). Brand New continues to break the mold and in true Brand New form, they delve into new musical territory.
