Hit the replies for a video of Brand New performing "Missing You" live at the Filmore last week. This is one of the better versions that contains the reworked bridge and outro (starting at about the 2:08 mark).

On top of Brand New being "brand new," the band is selling their Devil and God lyric book at tonight's show.

Update: They just posted on Instagram that it will be available at shows and "Unlimited printing. Available soon online. Cost: $2. Ebay value: $2."
Keagan Ilvonen on 04/08/15 - 05:40 PM
Oh hey, nothing to see here - Brand New deleted all its Instagram photos and left a new promo photo as the sole survivor. Probably means a new album sometime this year, yeah?
Drew Beringer on 04/08/15 - 05:34 PM
Reports are coming in that Brand New are sending out lyric books!? What!!? Some pictures have started showing up online (they're in the replies) showing everything that was sent out (including the dollar bill coming back). There's also an insert that claims the infamous demos will be released on cassette later this year. So, either this is a very well executed prank that took a lot of time to put together ... or maybe it's happening. Do we have any other confirmations beside this one user yet?

Update: The company that worked on the Shone viral campaign and works on Brand New's website, "The Up Studio," just posted this (mirror) on their Tumblr page.

Raquel Banks talked to Shaun Cooper from Taking Back Sunday for 34th Street.
Itís just part of life, and I donít read the internet except for my Twitter feed, so I donít see what other bands are up to or what other people are saying about our band. Iím a grown-ass man. Iíve got enough going on in my life with my wife and my kid, and Iím just a pretty happy guy. Iím living my dream, so when thereís drama, I donít care or really even give it much of a second thought because it doesnít mean anything. People get all hyped up about stuff on the internet for a couple days, and everyone likes complaining and bitching and moaning and talking shit and at the end of the day, it doesnít change my...

The entire list containing all of this year's Record Store Day titles have been released. Interesting note within the description for the hotly-anticipated re-issue of Brand New's Deja Entendu: "Housed in a paper bag, Lyric Book Insert, Patch Insert, Sticker Sheet Insert, Download Card." Okay.

Taking Back Sunday's Adam Lazzarra, via OC Weekly, which, okay:
When asked about playing a song like "There's No 'I' In Team," which directly references a longstanding feud with the band Brand New (specifically front man/former Taking Back Sunday bassist Jesse Lacey), Lazzara continues to add fuel to the old fire. "I think Jesse Lacey is just a dick," he says. "He just sucks. He's not a good person." Lazzarra goes on, "Who am I to say?", he says. "There's somebody out there that's gonna say I'm not a good person. I don't know."

The band Simple Mind is recording a "reimagined" version of Brand New's The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me. Their cover of "Limousine" can be found in the replies, and some info on why they're doing this is up at this interview.
In December of 2013, I caught Brand New for one of their discography shows, as well as their Bell House show in Brooklyn. That show went down in their fanbasesí eyes as one of the best Brand New shows of all time. It was an incredible experience for me as well and I realized that this band was pretty much in my musical DNA. I wanted to delve into their songs and put myself into them, because I felt like they were all a part of me. I also just love the Brand...

It's that time of year once again. 2014 has finally wrapped up and we've arguably covered a wider array of music than ever this past year which leads us into one of the most exciting times of every year: looking into the future. We've once again assembled a lengthy list of bands and artists we're looking forward to hearing from in the new year. Will 2015 finally be the year that we get a new Brand New album? Will Fun. release their highly anticipated follow up to Some Nights? Who will release the surprise album of the year contender like The Hotelier did in 2014? These are all things we've tried to tackle and I'd like to think we came pretty damn close. So jump to the replies, see...

This has been submitted almost 50 times now ... yes, if you go to Brand New's merch store and click on "news" you will find a bunch of Latin text. This "Lorem ipsum" text is used by web designers and publishers to fill out designs with fake text so they can see how it'll look without having to come up with something to write each time. I don't believe it has anything to do with anything beside that. I do not, however, know what "Bone Thrower" means under the store dropdown. Ok, no more submitting this please.

A fan has written in to say that he noticed at recent Brand New shows that GoPros were being used throughout the show to record the performance. More fans have confirmed this on Reddit. No word on what the footage could be used for yet.
