Brand New are an Alternative Rock band from Long Island, New York. The band was founded in 2000 and has released four studio albums. Their style is a mixture of Alt Rock, Emo, Pop Punk, and Post-Hardcore.
Their lineup consists of:
- Jesse Lacey- vocals, guitar
- Vincent Accardi- lead guitar, backing vocals
- Brian Lane- drums
- Garrett Tierney- bass
- Derrick Sherman- keyboards, guitar, backing vocals
Their discography includes:
- Your Favorite Weapon
- Deja Entendu
- The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me
This band leaks examples of:
- A Date with Rosie Palms: The song "Magazines" is a bit of this.
- Break Up Song - Most of Your Favorite Weapon.
- And the entirety of "The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot."
- "Seventy Times 7" is a particularly spiteful "between friends" version.
- Careful with That Axe - "Luca" is a particularly alarming instance.
- Darker and Edgier - A career-long shift, from the relatively upbeat-sounding relationship songs of Your Favorite Weapon to the emo-tinged Deja Entendu to The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me which was their darkest yet. Then, Daisy was released and it took this even further.
- Apparently not the case with their upcoming album, however: Jesse has stated that he's trying to write "happier" music for a change.
- Murder Ballad - "Luca", which describes a mafia execution and is a Shout-Out to The Godfather.
- Mood Whiplash: Jesus Christ, Luca.
YouTube commenter: "this song put me to sleep - then it woke me up."
- Overly Long Title: The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
- Most of the tracks on Deja Entendu, the longest being Good to Know That If I Ever Need Attention All I Have to Do Is Die.
- Purple Prose - Jesse's preferred lyrical style. It's a wonder how he can fit some of these lines to music.
- Take That - Your Favorite Weapon is full of shots against Taking Back Sunday, Jesse's former band.
- Sex As a Rite of Passage - "Sic Transit Gloria" is a darker take on this.
- Studio Chatter - "Soco Amaretto Lime" has "one, two, three, four," in the beginning, albeit very, very faintly.
- Jesse can be heard saying "yeah, that's right" and starting the countdown at the beginning of "Play Crack the Sky." You can also clearly hear him put down his guitar and walk away at the end of the song.
