2006 The Devil & God Are Raging Inside Me
For Christmas 2006 my older brother bought me Devil & God as a present. I’d never heard of Brand New before and at the time I was more into Indie music. I checked out a few of the tracks and thought it sounded rubbish, so I traded it in for an NME Essentials compilation. Like I said, I was a bit of an indie fag back then.
2007 Deja Entendu
Time went by and I forgot about Brand New until one day Sic Transit Gloria was played on TV and even though I wasn’t hugely impressed, I searched for it on YouTube later and watched it a few times until I was hooked. I downloaded the whole album and got really into it.
2008 Your Favourite Weapon
I felt kinda bad not paying for Deja Entendu so I went into HMV to buy a physical copy it and it came in a set with YFW. Again, fell in love with it. They quickly became my two most played albums and to this day I still rank them up there with the best I’ve ever heard.
2008 The Devil & God Are Raging Inside Me
So yeah, despite this being the first Brand New album I ever heard, it took me 2 years to finally buy it and listen to it properly. It wasn’t till around 2009-ish that I started to appreciate this album properly, but I now rank it as an equal to YFW & Deja.
This was the first Brand New album to come out while I was a fan and by September 2009, I was a HUGE fan. The girl I was seeing at the time bought it for me for my 19th Birthday, which was 3 days after the album came out. I was forbidden to listen to it on Spotify in those 3 days prior to my birthday although… I had found a torrent for it about a month before it came out, so the first time I listened to Daisy was on a beach in the South of France. Perfection. BUT, obviously I couldn’t tell my girlfriend I’d broken a promise and kinda lied to her. So as far as she’s aware, the first time I heard Daisy was on my 19th birthday while we participated in Birthday sex. To this day I still think listening to it for the first time on a beautiful beach in the South of France was better than listening to it during sex. Just sayin’
2011 Fght ff Yr Dmns
Two years later I discovered the Devil & God b-sides.
2013 New album
I’m being hopeful.
The Story So Far
The Wonder Years
Balance and Composure
Into It. Over It.
A Loss for Words
I think it will be a pretty good year
And Nai Harvest! And everything else coming out on Run For Cover. This year is gonna rule for music.
Brand New have an album coming out this year?? How come I can’t find any information on this??
I’ve got videos and audio tracks of each song, so please give them a listen and let me know what you think!
Which Brand New song do I cover on the 22nd??
I’ve narrowed it down to:
The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot
Play Crack The Sky
Life is difficult sometimes.
It has 41 tracks in it. Brand New have a 46 album tracks on Spotify.
I ended up chatting to this girl after I’d played and she recommended I check out a band called Brand New because my music sounded similar to theirs.
