Long Island alternative rock band Brand New has pushed back the release of their as-yet unnamed fifth studio album and confirmed that they will be disbanding afterwards, writing on Twitter:
“At some point previous, we, Brand New, admitted our plans to release a record this year. These plans were authentic, but we are changing them. While there exists a collection of songs that, right now, some would call fit to be an album, to us it is not complete enough, refined enough, or edited thoroughly enough to be something we could call finished or essential. Brand New will not release a record in 2016.
What’s left should be a strange demise, but hopefully one as loud and as fun as the rest of our time together has been. All are invited. Please send flowers.”
Rumors of Brand New’s break up were sparked when frontman Jesse Lacey cryptically told an audience that “this won’t last much longer” at the end of a 2015 concert in Nashville, Tennessee. On their recent co-headlining run with Modest Mouse, the band inscribed merchandise and set pieces with “Brand New: 2000-2018,” causing further speculation that their demise was imminent.
Brand New has also announced that, on their upcoming trek with Modern Baseball and The Front Bottoms, they will play their critically-acclaimed album, The Devil and God are Raging Inside of Me, in its entirety.

Fan Fest takes place before every game, so if you are there be sure to stop by!

Each year, Ticket Galaxy breaks away from the office and enjoys a team outing! Previous outings include dinner and games at Dave and Busters, taking in a minor-league baseball game and a beach picnic. This year the team rooted for the blue and white at a University of Connecticut football game when they played the University of Maine on September 1st. Prior to the game, everyone enjoyed beverages and BBQ food and then they headed up to the suites to watch the UCONN Huskies beat the Bears 24-21. These outings are a great way for co-workers to talk outside of the office and have a little fun!
It was a late night for many members of our team, as they volunteered after-hours to be part of Ticket Galaxy's first national video spot. Filmed at UConn's Gampel Pavilion, 40 'extras' followed our lead actor and actress to have their ticket scanned into the venue. Airing nationally this Fall and Winter, you can see the spot at many of our partnership games including the University of Connecticut, streamed events on World Series of Fighting, Ticket Galaxy 200 and more.
