Brand New and Modest Mouse schedule massive summer tour

2099
Brand New

Will 2016 be the year we finally get a new Brand New album? We’ve been waiting for a new LP since 2009, but judging by the amount of activity we’ve seen with Jesse Lacey & Co. recently, all signs are pointing to maybe-hopefully-please-please-please-say-yes. First, they dropped a new song. Then, they dropped another new song. Then, Jesse Lacey kinda-sorta said Brand New miiiiight be breaking up. Then, the band released their 2006 demos on cassette tape. Now, Brand New is hitting the road this summer with one of their biggest influences, long-running indie-rock troupe Modest Mouse. Isaac Brock and his band are touring in support of last year’s Strangers To Ourselves—Modest Mouse’s first album in eight years. So, assuming Brand New draws not only musical but scheduling influence from Modest Mouse, we actually might not get Daisy‘s follow-up until next year. Well, shit. Anyway, find all the dates below and jump on those pre-sale tickets:
