Brand New

Yeah, that's the name of the band. You've probably heard them before or at least heard of them. If you have heard them before, you've probably heard this song...

"Jesus Christ"

They were featured on David Letterman once and played that song.

Brand New is an American band out of New York, I believe they said from Long Island. Their members include: Jesse Lacey (vocals, guitar), Vincent Accardi (guitar, backing vocals), Garrett Tierney (bass), Brian Lane (drums), Derrick Sherman (guitar, keys, backing vocals).

They've released a total of four full-length albums: Your Favorite Weapon (2001), Deja Entendu (2003), The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me (2006), and Daisy (2009). I actually haven't heard Daisy yet, but I did enjoy the other three albums. The first two albums were both self-released. It wasn't until 2005 that they were signed with Interscope.

Alright, I'm boring myself, here's some music.

"Sic Transit Gloria... Glory Fades"

"Seventy times 7"
This song is cool because it was written fro an ex-girlfriend and ex-bestfriend  from college who slept with each other at a party or something along those lines. The ex-bestfriend went on to play guitar for the band Taking Back Sunday. They also have a song about it.

"Soco Amaretto Lime"
Reminds me of high school and old friends.

Keep Rockin'!


  1. I haven't watched a night time talk show apart from Conan in years, so I'm a little surprised to hear that one had decent music on it.

  2. i like the 1st and 3rd songs the most.

  3. I really, really dug this sound of these guys, I love being introduced to new music! Thanks man!

    It's really easy for me to pass off anything new musically as cheesy. But this was a nice cool mellow sound...

  4. huh they live pretty close to me

  5. Thanks for all the positive comments. I'm glad to have introduced something new to someone who appreciates it. I've been aiming my blog towards combining my hardcore/metal/yelling stuff with more chill/acoustic and just catchy music.

  6. I'm in the same boat as DocStout! Good sound!
