An In Depth Jesse Lacey Interview

Posted by: Keagan Ilvonen (08/09/12)
Another interview has hit the web from Brand New's Canadian tour. This time Jesse sat down for almost an hour and went into a lot of lengthy questions. Definitely a great read.
From The InterviewJL: See, Daisy was kind of like an end of a road or tangent for us. I canít listen to that album now, it is exhausting.
EN: And it doesnít flow (laughing).
JL: Right (Jesse admits with raised eyebrows, laughing) there is NO flow to that album. But if Devil and God was a course correction for us Daisy was the anxiety of doing the right thing and being on course with who we wanted to be. Frankly, itís a lot easier to be a nut or to not answer to your decisions. Itís much easier to just do things and not care about the consequences. Doing the right thing is really hard.

I love this band but that interviewer seems like they put Jesse Lacey on a godlike pedestal and it's a little weird.

I noticed that as well, yet he still had the balls to say outright that Daisy had no flow. But they're his favorite band. I'd act creepy around Mark Hoppus, I'm sure.

It’s funny…I joked a while ago that Brand New was going to make happy music. I mean I said it on stage one night and everyone ran with it. I don’t think we’re going to write happy music though. We do sad bastard quite well (laughs). But we want our music to answer questions and the thing is that sometimes those questions are sad ones. We want to make new music with new answers but sometimes the questions are still sad ones and sometimes that is just a reality. Life is about accepting the hard parts like loss, and succeeding in society.

This is an amazing quote.

Glad he admitted it's easier to just do whatever you want. I hate when bands release experimental albums and people stack it against "normal" albums (claiming that the experimental stuff takes more skill). Writing a more structured song/album always seemed harder than just doing something completely random. Idk, good interview and I still listen to Daisy occasionally.
