Brand New’s New Album Coming in 2016


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.

New Fall Out Boy Singles to Debut in January

As we continue our Fall Out Boy watch 2014 clear into the new year, the band have already announced they will be releasing two new single in early 2015.

In a post they uploaded onto Twitter a few days ago, they confirmed the first of the two new singles will be dropped on Jan. 5 while the second one is set to be released on Jan. 12. As of now, no titles for the two tracks have been revealed.

All this is part of their marketing strategy for the release of their new album, American Beauty/American Psycho due out on Jan. 20. As of now, they have released three songs from the album which includes, lead single “Centuries,” “American Beauty/ American Psycho,” “The Kids Aren’t Alright,” and “Immortals” which according to the band will not be the same version they recorded for Disney’s Big Hero 6.

As well as the announcement of the new songs, the band also teased that some big announcement will be “coming soon.”

If we were beating people, we would put our money on them announcing a new tour, but we’re not, so we won’t.

The new year is already shaping to be a full one for Fall Out Boy. Frontman Patrick Stump is currently in the middle of playing judge on NBC’s a cappella competition show, The Sing Off and this coming Wednesday, they will be performing several songs on Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution.
