Brand New – single and tour

I actually believe that middle-aged angst is more genuine and immediate than the early-life variety that most of us leave behind sometime after college.

Brand New, a band well-versed in the disenchantment of Gen X nihilism, returned last year with a caustic new single “Mene” and dropped an official release of the long-circulated Leaked Demos 2006 earlier this year.

Now, on the verge of a tour with Modest Mouse, Brand New unleash “I Am A Nightmare” on an unsuspecting world busy debating about Donald Trump, Blake Lively and other innocuous entertainment drivel.

3:20 of romantic miscreantry.

“I am a nightmare and you are a miracle.”

“Shake your zen out and give me pure energy.”

Yes! Indeed.
