I am eagerly awaiting the new album from Brand New, Daisy, as it is currently called, previously And One Hea Will Never Die. Oh you boys... So, it's due here september 21st, one day before the US release nwahaha. after seeing them live a few weeks ago i have become hooked once more, like some junkie who re-discovers his poison months after finding peace away from chemical dependency.
First when i heard that live recording of the song known as 'brickhouse' or 'bride' i felt the potential, and hearing live versions such as this just get me so excited: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1TW3SffzA8
Then there is Gasoline, a song written by vinnie, and i've become obsessed with this acoustic version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jew-8QyfenI and some classice Jesse banter here, gotta love him! one of my (totally hetero) man crushes... along with Jonny Greenwood... and Adam Lazarra... and you might have thought my girlfriend would be worried by now...
But seeing it live full band i didnt recognise it! sounded pretty fast and upbeat, with a slight feeling of early Brand New, YFW era stylee almost (but i cant remember it well)
This is probably the most anticipated album in my lifetime so far, it's a shame he's said they might split up after it. But there is hope of a Jesse Lacey solo album, and hopefully some other side projects from the rest of the band, and a reunion in a few years!
