Whether Jesse Lacey is forgetting the lyrics to his own songs or crying about the inevitable ending of his band, going to a Brand New show is nothing short of entertaining. On Tuesday (Jan. 26), the group unveiled that they will be hitting the road once again this summer. The Long Island band revealed that they will be hitting the touring circuit for a co-headlining excursion with Modest Mouse. The tour will kick-off on June 28 at Saltair in Magna, UT and wrap up a month or so later on July 31 at the Moda Center in Portland, OR.
Pre-sales tickets for the tour are currently available here. For those who are not able to purchase pre-sale tickets at the moment, don’t fret; general admission sales will begin this Friday, Jan. 29. For now, check out the complete list of tour dates, as well as the official poster for the tour, below.
The tour announcement just adds on to the rumors of Brand New releasing a new record soon. Last year, the rumors hit an all time high when Lacey, during an interview confirmed there was indeed new music, but that it wasn’t ready to be released yet. Then, in December, the band released a collection titled Brand New – Leaked Demos 2006. Sadly, it wasn’t a collection of new songs, just a collection of leaked demos from 2006 (like the title claims). No word yet if 2016 will be the year that the highly anticipated record will hit shelves. We all know fans are excited for a new record that can erase the memory of the lukewarm-received Daisy.
As for Modest Mouse, the Washington state band released their highly anticipated new album Strangers to Ourselves back in 2015 and tour extensively behind the record’s release.
