With the announcement of a co-headlining tour, it’s only natural to assume that a new album will be making its way to fans of Brand New. Last summer, frontman Jesse Lacey had teased that there was in fact new music on the horizon, but that it wasn’t ready to be released yet. On Friday (Jan. 29), the rumors gave way to actual confirmation.
In an email sent out to those subscribed to their website, Procrastinate! confirmed the release of the new album. Set up like an information report, several new releases are listed in the “synopsis” area. In that area there are several references to Brand New and one specifically about their new album. The first says: “Brand New (band) have released cassette pressing of 9 ‘leaked’ demos from 2006. Available now for purchase.” This is a direct reference to the band’s release from back in December.
The second and third reference are about their recently announced tour dates; the first batch of tour dates in Canada while the second batch of dates are about their upcoming, co-headlining tour with Modest Mouse. Then, under the area labeled “Procrastinate! confirmed record releases for year 2016,” the last item is Brand New’s new record confirmation.

Fans of the Long Island band have been eagerly awaiting the new album release for some time. We just hope that they aren’t disappointed if it ends up being another Daisy.
