Brand New was conceived in a basement in Merrick,NY where drummer, Brian
Lane, and frontman, Jesse Lacey began their first informal rehearsals.
It didn't take long for them to realize that they had some pretty solid
songs between them^?and that people needed to hear them.
The pair quickly recruited long time friend Garrett Tierney, as well as
Vin Accardi, to play bass and guitar, respectively. The group was
complete and soon set about recording their first demo, a four-song CD
that the band recorded, produced and released by themselves. A rigorous
writing, practice and touring schedule helped the band quickly climb the
ranks of the underground Long Island scene where they were born. Soon
they were playing shows with bands like Midtown, New Found Glory, Good
Charlotte, and Glassjaw.
With some classic influences like The Cars, Squeeze, and The Beach Boys
as well as more contemporary artists like Lifetime, Weezer and The Foo
Fighters, Brand New has built an energetic, more pop-than-punk sound.
Their live show is loud and exciting and it's impossible to stand still
when these guys are playing. The harmonies are too clever, the hooks are
too catchy and everybody is singing along. The tunes are simple and
strong, obvious teenage anthems about obvious teenage hurt. Still, watch
them play and you won't see the grins leave their faces. They love what
they do and they do it well.
"We never wanted to be the innovative band, we've just not smart
enough." says Lacey, ?e just want to play songs that you want to listen
to over and over again, and that kids relate to, and that you can't get
out of your head.^?
Mission accomplished. [triplecrownrecords]
