Disagree completely. I saw Jesse at his show in Chicago in July 2009 and asked if he was excited to release the album title of Daisy which was suppose to happen exclusively on Absolute Punk. He had no idea what I was talking about and announced the album title during the show (I recall Mr. Tate being none to pleased with me on the message board). Brand New thrives on the secrecy
I remember that, yeah.
But it doesn't remotely change the facts of this story.
Jesse talked to one of the guys at the show, and when he was asked about new music he said they'd try to maybe push something out by summer. That doesn't constitute a news-worthy announcement in my book.
