I would definitely disagree with TDAGARIM being mixed. From what I have seen here, the mixed just comes from those who find their first album their favorite (definitely nostalgic) and are always waiting for their return to that style (which will never happen). TDAGARIM continues to be one of my favorite albums of all time for any band.

It's almost creepy (and disgusting) that a small tweet and general heresay blows out of proportion and is taken literally. It's also sad that the small exchange (which I'm sure was more along the lines of "well im hoping to get something out by summer") was the biggest part news-wise for the Shone show. It was their show, and it was turned into this wild "leaked information" because people hounded over Jesse and the band.

I'm a Brand New fan and I'm still baffled as to why everyone on this site goes so crazy for them.
I feel exactly the same way...

That's where it was. It's dead now though.

This. Good band, but confusing nonetheless.

It seems like it would make it really difficult to be a casual fan of the band because someone who isn't really devoted to Brand New won't have the patience to put up with all the teases and non-news.
I kinda wonder if it makes it easier too ... you just sit back, go about your day, and wait for something to actually come out and the band to tour every 3-4 years.

I really do think a big part of it has to do with the mystery ... it's something you can't have, can't know, and it makes people crazy. Plus, it helps that the band released two (for some 3) of the most influential albums in their formative lives.

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.

Aside from the music, that's one of the things that I love about this band. Most bands covered on this website come to Canada to play shows in 3 cities, just like Fall Out Boy is doing this summer, and that annoys me. I really appreciate the fact that Brand New is willing to actually tour across our country and do a legitimate Canadian tour. The fact that they don't refuse interview requests from us Canadians is just an added bonus, haha.

I'm a Brand New fan as well, but the response that they get on this site at even the slightest inclination towards new music is ridiculous. They love having this sense of mystery, almost as if they're living legends. Hopefully they don't get full of it and release bad music after all this hype.

obviously the lack of infor helps a band. It creates an aura surrounding the band. It's the same way with any songwriter/band who doesn't do interviews or shows a lot.

No, I understand that - I suppose I'm just confused by how nearly-universal AP's love for Brand New is. I find it fascinating that on such a large site, there is relatively little outcry against Brand New's reputation.

The secrecy is one of the main reasons I like Brand New so much, it kind of makes them seem enigmatic in away.
