Listen: Brand New Shares Single “I Am A Nightmare”

Brand New Brand New!

Brand New is BACK. And if this is any indication of what their upcoming album will sound like, it’s gonna be awesome.

Have a listen to their new single “I Am A Nightmare” in the player above!

Fans have been not-so-patiently awaiting a follow-up to 2009’s Daisy. Last year, the band broke their 6 year silence with “Mene“, and a live version of the new song “Sealed To Me“.

Is this a sign of what’s to come? Frontman Jesse Lacey leaked in a rare interview that the new album would be more reminiscent of The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me, rather than the complex melodies of their latest record, Daisy:

“I don’t know how well ‘Mene’ represents the new material. I think it has more melody than our last record. When you listen to “Mene’ you can follow it and sing along and that’s the same with our new music. On Daisy the melodies were more complicated. I don’t want to make music I get tired of hearing and I think that’s what we tried to achieve with this new album. We don’t want to bore people so we’re trying to get back to that moment where it was easier for our music to be understood but still treating it with maturity. More than anything, I think the new songs are catchy.”

Brand New confirmed that they will release a new album this year. It is also rumored to be their last.

“I Am A Nightmare” is available for pre-order on a 12” on the band’s website. Check out the single album art:
