Album Review

Brand New is bitter about ex-girlfriends. Just how bitter? The lyrics to just about any song on their debut will give you an inkling, especially "Seventy Times 7," where they grieve: "Have another drink and drive yourself home/I hope there's ice on all the roads/And you can think of me when you forget your seat belt and again when your head goes through the windshield." Aside from all the excessive post-breakup angst, Brand New's emotive pop-punk holds up nicely among the big list of its contemporaries. There are several upbeat anthems with three-part harmonies, though a few ballads break up the high energy. They pay respect to post-punk in "Mix Tape," where they mention the Smiths, while cribbing from the Cure's "Close to Me" in "Logan to Government Center." The repeating refrain of "This isn't high school" in "Last Chance to Lose Your Keys" at least acknowledges that they've grown up, although in the closing singalong "Soco Amaretto Lime" they declare, "I'm gonna stay 18 forever." You'll probably feel 18 listening to this. [Your Favorite Weapon was released on LP in 2011.]

Customer Reviews


Acually that's not what happened. The lead singer of Brand New was in Taking Back Sunday until the lead singer of Taking Back Sunday slept with the lead singer of Brand New's sister. And that started some trust isues and so they broke up and did their own thing. I asked Adamn from Taking Back Sunday when I met them, cause it drove me nuts. SO yeah!

Seventy Times 7 vs. No

About the relationship with Taking Back Sunday, the lead singers of both of these bands got into a fight. TBS's lead singer slept with BN's girlfriend. So, he got pissed and wrote seventy times 7. (:


As I said, great album, the best in my opinion. But whats with these guys and Taking Back Sunday? I mean Tell All Your Friends Suggests alot, lyricly they share alot of the same concepts, just listen to Seventy Times 7 then No 'I' In Team. Hey i'm just a fan of them both from the beggining wondering what goes on between the two. And why did they take down the other reviews?


Formed: 2000 in Merrick, NY

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Although the members of Brand New cut their teeth in various hardcore bands, the group took a more melodic approach to its own work, embracing punk-pop on the debut album Your Favorite Weapon and incorporating aspects of indie rock during future projects. Formed in Long Island, NY, the band took shape in 2000 around the talents of drummer Brian Lane, vocalist/guitarist Jesse Lacey, bassist Garrett Tierney, and guitarist Vin Accardi. Brand New wasted little time attracting local attention with a self-released...
