Earlier this year, Brand New fans were excited to hear that the band would be releasing a new record in 2016. However today, Brand New has released a statement about the new album, which may be coming out a little later than anticipated. In the letter, Brand New writes, "These plans were authentic, but we are 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 throughly enough to be something we would call finished or essential."
But with bad news comes good news. Although Brand New will not be releasing a new record in 2016, the band has announced that, in celebration of the 10th anniversary of The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me, they will be playing the album in full on their upcoming fall tour dates, beginning on October 13th. Read the full statement from the band below.
