It's been six long years since Brand New released a new album, but the Long Island natives have returned with, "I Am A Nightmare," a track expected to appear on their fifth and potentially, final album.
While we await another leaked email, fans can look forward to Brand New's Canadian and US tour alongside Modest Mouse, as well as a confirmed album dropping sometime this year.
Jesse Lacey has never been shy about his skepticism of fame an the politics of the music industry, citing an internal conflict throughout the band's catalog. "I Will Play My Game Beneath The Spin Light," now a classic track off of 2003's Deja Entendu, gave fans some insight into the life of a touring musician, and braced us for the inevitable. Judging by the lyrics, "I Am A Nightmare" may be reiterating what we've known for years.
On a positive note, the band more than delivers on "I Am A Nightmare", staying true to their identity with the same unmistakable sound.
