A purported rare testing pressing (I can't confirm if it's real a real test press or not, you'll have to trust the poster) of Brand New's Your Favorite Weapon has been put on eBay to raise money to try and save a non-profit all ages venue/art space the owner opened last May.
I think there were less than 10 test pressings of this record, it was eventually repressed a ton of times on different labels, but this is the Iodine recordings version, the real 1st pressing. This record was a gift, and I do not want to part with it, but it may be the only way to save the non profit all ages venue/art space I opened last May. I was lucky enough to book / work with Brand New before they became a...

Pup, much like Brand New, are also a fan of merch that depicts pissing on wires. While quite funny, as friend of the site Rob Dobi points out, all the images are from this public-domain collection.

Brand New have posted up some of their new tour merch online.
Just taking a minute to thank everyone for all the fun at the shows recently. As Chris Conley would say, we feel powerfully psyched. It's a beautiful day today, and we are really looking forward to tonight and the remainder of the shows on the East coast.
We've put some new t-shirt set designs up in the store. One design of each set will be available exclusively at live events, so if you happen to be at a show, pick one up.

This past Saturday, I got to see Brand New put on one hell of a set on their summer run with Into It. Over It. and Dinosaur Pile-Up at The Pageant in St. Louis. Hit the replies to read the full review of the show.
Unlike most bands that take their sweet time between releases and tours, Brand New never seem to run the risk of fading into irrelevancy, it just makes their fans hungrier.

Funny that Jason mentioned this, because Brand New just posted this photo of themselves working in the studio. Confirming their earlier update.

Pegasus Festival happened outside of Dallas, Texas this weekend. This is the first festival for Ghostlight Concerts, and they did a decent job.The big draw was Brand New but in true Brand-New-style, there were a lot of let down fans. Luckily, Circa Survive, Bad Books, PM Today, and Residual Kid were there to save the day. Hit the replies to read my full review of the festival.
Brand New took one hundred years to actually take the stage and opened with "Sowing Season," followed by a lot of Daisy and D&G.

Brand New have updated fightoffyourdemons.com with the news that they've been doing some writing, some recording and some "studio building" with promises that more updates will be coming soon. Holy shit. The whole update is in the replies.

Happy birthday to one of AbsolutePunk.net's sweetest and most adored children, Brand New's Deja Entendu, who turned 11 years old yesterday. It's crazy how fast these kids are growing up. Probably we should get them an iPhone now.

Confirming all of our suspicions, Fred Feldman, owner of Triple Crown Records recently did an interview with Haulix to talk about various topics but confirmed that there will be a Deja Entendu vinyl reissue. Now we patiently wait by our keyboards for pre-orders to go live.
Haha, thatís my favorite question! Itís one of those things where I have to remind myself not to be a dick. (laughs) I have a very close relationship with the band, and they always want to put music out a certain way, both aesthetically and sonically. Thatís why I donít want to just press it and put it out there. When we reissued Your Favorite Weapon they went back and remastered the whole thing. They always want to do...

DLSL Design Co., the company that made those talked-about blink-182 art prints, is back with round two of their Covers series. This time the works he drew inspiration from are Your Favorite Weapon, Deja Entendu and The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me, but he seems to have taken note of some criticisms pointed out in the last thread and has changed his thought process behind the designs. Check them out in the replies and if you dig them, they're available on Etsy.

Over two years ago we posted about a bar in Philly that had Brand New related drinks -- turns out they still have music named drinks and they've now decided that mics are for swinging. Check out the drinks in the replies, find more information about the bar here.

The second "Inside Kevin Devine" feature has been posted via PropertyOfZack. Jesse Lacey, Andy Hull, The God Damn Band, and many others provide commentary.
So I met Kevin eventually at an outdoor show we played together, and I think Miracle had already kind of split up, and he was this kind of crazy twitchy kid who was really good at guitar and sang solo on stage at hardcore and emo shows around New York. So then we were friends, and that was that. I donít know how things go from there, but I do know that watching Kevin over the years, Iíve realized that while I or other musicians I know had to develop something, Kevin seemed always capable of everything. He always listened to cool...

Brand New have started their east coast shows with ... The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me. They followed that up with Daisy. This led to disappointed Brand New fans. Yep, it's exactly what you fear.
