Brand New changed the "Hype" link in the top right corner of their new website to "Node."

Brand New are going to to spend a few more months torturing us. Their website has been updated. Procrastinate! Pogolith. Earth Sound Alliance 2015.

This has been submitted almost 50 times now ... yes, if you go to Brand New's merch store and click on "news" you will find a bunch of Latin text. This "Lorem ipsum" text is used by web designers and publishers to fill out designs with fake text so they can see how it'll look without having to come up with something to write each time. I don't believe it has anything to do with anything beside that. I do not, however, know what "Bone Thrower" means under the store dropdown. Ok, no more submitting this please.

A fan has written in to say that he noticed at recent Brand New shows that GoPros were being used throughout the show to record the performance. More fans have confirmed this on Reddit. No word on what the footage could be used for yet.

We aren't actually a recording band anymore. We are just collecting gear.

Brand New are still recording. I have a hunch things are getting weird.

Most of Brand New's set at the Fox Theatre in Oakland last week can be seen in the replies. You can study it so you know what are and aren't 'new songs' when you go with your friends.

I'm no betting man, but it appears that Brand New is in the studio with Mike Sapone.

The Buffalo News did not like Brand New at Edgefest.
Wow. Iíll go out on a limb here and suggest that Brand New is one of the worst bands Iíve ever seen in decades of concert attendance. Horribly out of tune, dedicatedly dirge-dedicated, apparently hostile to anything resembling a melody, and, one would guess, comfortable with the idea of blending emo, metal, hardcore, and punk with an ear for the atonal, the group offered a set that just didnít seem to want to end. It did, eventually.

Triple Crown Records has repressed Brand New's The Devil and God Are Raging Inside of Me. 500 copies on seafoam green and 3,000 on standard black vinyl. Be quick, I don't see these making it past tomorrow.

A purported rare testing pressing (I can't confirm if it's real a real test press or not, you'll have to trust the poster) of Brand New's Your Favorite Weapon has been put on eBay to raise money to try and save a non-profit all ages venue/art space the owner opened last May.
I think there were less than 10 test pressings of this record, it was eventually repressed a ton of times on different labels, but this is the Iodine recordings version, the real 1st pressing. This record was a gift, and I do not want to part with it, but it may be the only way to save the non profit all ages venue/art space I opened last May. I was lucky enough to book / work with Brand New before they became a...

Brand New have posted up some of their new tour merch online.
Just taking a minute to thank everyone for all the fun at the shows recently. As Chris Conley would say, we feel powerfully psyched. It's a beautiful day today, and we are really looking forward to tonight and the remainder of the shows on the East coast.
We've put some new t-shirt set designs up in the store. One design of each set will be available exclusively at live events, so if you happen to be at a show, pick one up.

Happy birthday to one of AbsolutePunk.net's sweetest and most adored children, Brand New's Deja Entendu, who turned 11 years old yesterday. It's crazy how fast these kids are growing up. Probably we should get them an iPhone now.

Virginia, North Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina and Florida, you're all in luck. Updated list of dates in the replies and pre-sale here at noon local time (for all dates except the three Florida dates, which were previously announced). So will there be a new album around October?

Confirming all of our suspicions, Fred Feldman, owner of Triple Crown Records recently did an interview with Haulix to talk about various topics but confirmed that there will be a Deja Entendu vinyl reissue. Now we patiently wait by our keyboards for pre-orders to go live.
Haha, thatís my favorite question! Itís one of those things where I have to remind myself not to be a dick. (laughs) I have a very close relationship with the band, and they always want to put music out a certain way, both aesthetically and sonically. Thatís why I donít want to just press it and put it out there. When we reissued Your Favorite Weapon they went back and remastered the whole thing. They always want to do...

DLSL Design Co., the company that made those talked-about blink-182 art prints, is back with round two of their Covers series. This time the works he drew inspiration from are Your Favorite Weapon, Deja Entendu and The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me, but he seems to have taken note of some criticisms pointed out in the last thread and has changed his thought process behind the designs. Check them out in the replies and if you dig them, they're available on Etsy.
