interview with Jesse Lacey from February 10th is really interesting. It's long, but worth a read, as it's more of a conversation about life and art and the evolution of Brand New's sound. Not to speculate but, speculating: it seems like he and the rest of the band members are in a really good place these days.
What's really exciting is this bit, though:So you started writing new material about a year ago?
Well we probably started writing new material as soon as we were done with the last record, it’s just lately we’ve all been exploring our peripheral projects outside of ‘Brand New’. It’s been nice to get back together again, because you’ll hear something that Brian’s done, or Vinni’s done, you almost get jealous of it, because you wish you had been part of that, so we’re definitely excited to get back in the studio together. We have studio time in April but we’re not really sure how that will turn out, unfortunately for our fans, it’s really ‘see how it goes’ for now. But we are intent on getting music out, we’d like to do it before the end of the year.
