“Pluto is interesting because it’s fixed on its moon, Charon, and they rotate around each other, constantly staring at each other affectionately, which is kind of a beautiful metaphor but I think that’s one of the reasons why it was demoted. Because I think now to be a proper planet you have to command the authority of others and because the moon and Pluto are sort of existentially attached as equals neither of them can be considered a planet. [Pauses] Sad, but true.”—Sufjan Stevens on why Pluto had to be a dwarf (via foxandfayvel)
Hey Guys! We're recording in April and making music that won't bum you out, and it should be out by the end of the year!

Yeah, we didn't really record anything Brand New related in our studio time. It's tough being in a band. I don't really like it. We might be ending soon. But we might record or something. I dunno.
Could you PLEASE commit to something!? Every couple of years I have to wait for you to put out an album and you always seem to enjoy delaying the release of. I hate how you send me mixed signals all the time… Can’t we just figure out a way to keep this relationship smooth sailing. Be honest with me, 2012 album or not?!
We might have to break up if you can’t pull yourself together.
Brand New had studio time booked in April to record their next release, but Jesse Lacey has confirmed that the members did not actually record new music for the band during that time. Lacey’s tone throughout the interview suggests that while Brand New is not coming to…
;( i just learn to not expect any new music from them…because every release date they put out never happens like they say it will. i’m just not going to expect anything until it happens. ugh.
“I guess I’m a numbers guy…59 sound, 45. I feel like that Jesse Lacey dude from Brand New, ya know, ‘I think in decimals and dollars,’ he is the LAST person to think in decimals and dollars. He’s got all the money he could need and he still mows his own grass. I like him because he gets on stage, puts his hood on, and does whatever the fuck he wants.”—Brian Fallon on Jesse Lacey (via sowing-season-yeah)
Music must just run through the Lacey family’s veins… Jesse Lacey’s little brother (Jamey Lacey) has been fronting Coasta since the summer of 2011. I’m pleasantly surprised at how good it is, and hopefully they’ll be considered for more than just their connection to BN; they deserve the recognition.
dude at the c-store was the first stranger on this campus to ever comment on one of my band tshirts. and i’m wearing Brand New today. super stoked for a second but then he crushed my dreams a little bit by saying Daisy sucked and TDAG was THIRD after Deja and YFW and in hindsight i think i said “ARE YOU KIDDING ME” at an unreasonably high volume.
still made me excited enough to type this post, ok
