Brand New recently released a video for "Mene," their first new song since 2009.
Acclaimed punk band Brand New will play UNO’s Lakefront Arena on Oct. 7.
Best remembered for “Sic Transit Gloria… Glory Fades” and other songs from 2003’s emo-influenced album Deja Entendu, Brand New haven’t released a new album since 2009’s Daisy. This April, the band began performing new songs at concerts and released a new single, “Mene,” online. The band also rebooted its website and wiped its Instagram account, sparking anticipation of more new activity to come.
Brand New is currently in the midst of an extensive European and American tour that finds it at Lollapalooza, Bumbershoot and Lollapalooza Berlin before arriving in New Orleans in October.
Atlanta-based rock band Manchester Orchestra and singer-songwriter Kevin Devine (with the Goddamn Band) open the New Orleans show. All three acts are longtime friends who’ve hit the road together frequently in the past.
Tickets to the Oct. 7 concert are $29-37 and are on sale now at the Lakefront Arena box office, at (800) 745-3000 or through Ticketmaster.
