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.
