Ever since the 2009 release of Daisy, iconic alternative/emo band Brand New has fallen off the Midwest map with a touring hiatus, severely wounding the patience of the band's passionate following. With rumors of a new album throughout the past two years and nothing to show for it, fans have been left with empty hands and broken hearts. But now, when all hope had seemed to be lost, news of a long-awaited comeback has been sent from the genre-defining gods that brought you "The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows" and "Jesus Christ."
Brand New is finally returning to Michigan during a short Midwest/East Coast tour at the end of the summer, making a stop at The Intersection on Sept, 14. With serious talk of a new record with focus on older and sadder days, we can expect to hear some new material similar to 2006's The Devil and God... at the Grand Rapids show. With this being the first return to the stage anywhere west of Pennsylvania in years, the Intersection will likely be packed with the all-grown-up, diehard emo fans that have been delicately waiting for their return to the mosh pit.
Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 23rd at noon and are available at The Intersection box office and sectionlive.com.
