Brand New to release new song ‘I Am a Nightmare’

The track is out this Friday (May 20)

Brand New will release a new song, ‘I Am a Nightmare’, later this week.

The track is the first new material from the band since last year’s ‘Mene’. A 30 second clip can be heard on Amazon ahead of its release on Friday (May 20) via their own label, Procrastinate! Music Traitors.

In January, Brand New announced their fifth album, the first since 2009’s ‘Daisy’, via a mysterious email.

Fans who signed up to the band’s label mailing list received a message saying that the album will be available in an “unconfirmed format”, while other records on the same label will be released on vinyl.


In 2015, the Long Island band shared their first song in six years, ‘Mene’, along with the statement, “A lot has gone on the last few weeks. Some writing, some recording, some new gear, some studio building.”

Jesse Lacey, Brand New’s lead singer, has previously suggested that the forthcoming record might be the group’s last.

At a live show in October, he told the audience: “I’m gonna have a new daughter. We’ll hopefully have a record for you. I wanna tell you right here and now, this isn’t gonna last much longer, but it’s been so special for so long. For as long as it does last, we’re so grateful to you all for being here.”
