As the rock scene reaches saturation point, bands are finding they have a lot to prove to stay in the game; and none have risen to the challenge quite like Brand New. Having formed in 2001, the Long Island four-piece has built a massive cult following based on notorious live shows, relentless touring and three jaw-dropping albums.
After nearly three years of self-imposed silence Brand New finally emerged in late 2006 with their hotly anticipated third album, The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me. The critical and commercial acclaim for the album’s vast sonic layers and dark indie-rock overtones was instantaneous. Alternative Press quickly labelled the band as the ‘American Radiohead’ and the album as “A quantum leap above not only Brand New’s prior work… but beyond anything that any band in this scene are currently creating”. (Jan 2007)
Brand New are finally coming to Australia this June to reward the patience and persistence of their loyal fanbase.
