Brand New to perform ‘The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me’ in full

By Glen Bushell

Brand New have released a statement today addressing two things; the status of new material, and their plans for their upcoming US tour.

The band have said there will be no new album this year, despite it being teased over the last few months. However, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of their beloved album, ‘The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me’, they will perform the album in full on their upcoming US tour with Modern Baseball and The Front Bottoms.

The statement can be read in full below:

“To whom it may concern,

First, an apology. At some point previous, we, Brand New, admitted our plans to release a record this year. These plans were authentic, but we are changing them. While there exists a collection of songs that, right now, some would call fit to be an album, to us it is not complete enough, refined enough, or edited thoroughly enough to be something we would call finished or essential. Brand New will not release a record in 2016.

Secondly, we have been reminded that this fall will mark the tenth year since the release of our third album, The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me. It is an important record and piece of work to us, and one that ten years later we still use as a measuring post with which we compare the music we make now. So we have decided that on the upcoming fall tour, which begins on October 13, we will be performing the record, each night, in its entirety. It will be included within a larger set of songs, and will not exclude us playing music from other albums, or new music, nightly.

Whatโ€™s left should be a strange demise, but hopefully one as loud and as fun as the rest of our time together has been. All are invited. Please send flowers.

Sincerely, Brand New”

Brand new will be in the UK later this year when they support Biffy Clyro on their arena tour. Whether or not this anniversary set will continue on that tour remains to be seen.
