The band released their first album in 8 years last month
Brand New played some ‘Science Fiction’ tracks live for the first time last night (Sept 9).
‘Science Fiction’ is the band’s first album since 2009’s ‘Daisy’. Released on August 17, fans reported receiving mysterious CD copies of what appeared to be a new record in the mail. The band then released an official download of the album.
Performing at High And Low Festival in San Bernardino, CA, the band’s set was live streamed and saw them perform some of the album’s tracks for the first time. You can watch the stream below.
Brand New High And Low Festival setlist:

‘Science Fiction’ was produced by the band’s longtime collaborator Mike Sapone and features 12 tracks in total.
A “very limited” vinyl pre-order quickly sold out when the record was announced but no details such as tracklisting or album title were confirmed at the time. A fixed release date wasn’t announced either, with a tweet from the band’s account just stating the pre-orders would ship in October.
