Brand New aren’t releasing a new record this year as the group previously teased — but they are giving a treat to fans: On the band’s upcoming fall tour, they’ll perform the entirety of 2006’s The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me to celebrate the their third album’s 10-year anniversary.
They announced this Monday in a note posted to their official Twitter account, where Brand New members explained their plans to release an album this year “were authentic, but we are now 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,” the band wrote.
Brand New last put out new music in May when they dropped single “I Am A Nightmare,” and recently went on tour with Modest Mouse. In the note, they promise that, aside from playing all of The Devil and God, they’ll also be playing tracks from other albums and new music at these fall shows.
“What’s left should be a strange demise, but hopefully one as loud and as fun as the rest of our time together has been,” they wrote. “All are invited. Please send flowers.”
