Wow. Way different than anything I've heard from them before. I like it. It's a very clean sounding song. I think it works well for them. His regular singing vocals have really improved too.

They did. A few of the actual original members don't endorse this reunion, and they denied joining it. Eerie Von posted about it on his Facebook.

Loved their Philly set too! It had a great, avant-garde, Oingo Boingo, wackyness to it! Lots of fun. If Brand New fans could get down with Man Man, then maybe Shone will make more sense to them....
