Brand New announce US tour dates

Band have hinted current shows could be their last

Brand New have announced plans for a short tour of the US.

The New York band will hit the road this October for a series of shows with support from Modern Baseball and Front Bottoms.

Earlier in the year they hinted that any upcoming dates could be their last with a t-shirt featuring the dates 2000-2018.


At a live show in June their singer Jesse Lacey also announced “We’re done. Oh yeah, we’re done, and it makes nights like this all the more special so thanks for being here”, before playing the track ‘Sowing Season’. The appearance was part of a co-headline tour with Modest Mouse.

The run of dates follow last month’s EP ‘3 Demos Reworked’ and the single ‘I Am A Nightmare’ which was their first new music in over a year.

As the name suggests, the release includes three previously-leaked demos that have been reworked.

The songs featuring on the release are ‘Brother’s Song’, ‘Missing You’ and ‘1996’. The songs were first recorded in 2006 ahead of the band’s ‘The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me’ album but were discarded after the collection leaked online.

Frontman Jesse Lacey has previously suggested that the forthcoming record might be the group’s last.


The band are yet to release a full studio album since 2009’s ‘Daisy’.

They will play:

New York Main Street Amory (October 13)
New York Glens Falls Civic Center (14)
Portland Cross Insurance Arnea (15)
Wallingford Oakdale Theatre (17)
New York Ithaca College Athletics And Events Center (18)
