i agree. i have always thought it odd with jesse/brand new's admiration for some foreign press but never in the states. at the same time it does add to the bands allure.
i laughed when the Devil and God was leaked, well at least the demos, and what did we see when the album was released? These short one to two word titles. Not sure if this was on purpose of not but it looked like their little way at getting back.
at the same time, I will always give them credit for doing things their way (at least as of recent) and in a day and age where we are so used to twitter/instagram/podcast updates or v-blogs about their new albums, it's nice to have a band keep things on the down low and keep you guessing.
it's like a JJ Abrams movie minus the confusing trailers.
