BAND: Brand New was started in a very obligatory basement in Merrick, New York, a suburb of Manhattan by singer/guitarist Jesse Lacey, drummer Brian Lane, guitarist Vin Accardi, and bassist Garrett Tierney. The four individuals all had musical roots sunk in the Long Island Independent/Hardcore music scene, but with tastes that ranged from Buddy Rich to the Archers of Loaf to .... blah blah blah... the band always felt like it could move outside of whatever notions they felt inclined to when they were making music as younger people. After recording their first record, Your Favorite Weapon, with a friend and fifth band member, Mike Sapone, they began to tour the nation relentlessly. A second record, Deja Entendu, followed and so did the touring. U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia (sort of), Japan.... almost Japan. A third record, The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me, brought more touring. Then with a few exceptions, Brand New kind of disappeared a little to record a fourth abum. This album will be released when Brand New resurfaces, which will hopefully be sometime in 2009, not sure how much longer the fans can wait. They're not sure exaclty how many records they've sold, or exactly how many people like them. But it's going pretty well right now for them and they just go with it. (Taken mostly word-for-word from the official site.)
COMMUNITY: It all started with brand_new ... following the decision to make that community moderated, the logical thing to do was create a separate community for the Street Team. This prevents private Street Team happenings from intertwining with the likes of the public happenings. All posts made can only be seen by other members. Members must be approved to join. If you're not a member of the Street Team, you shouldn't be here. If you love Brand New but you aren't a member of the Street Team, join brand_new.
MAINTAINER: viva_chill - Chill! is not only the creator of this community but is also the maintainer of the community. She has pretty much been obsessed with music since she discovered New Kids on the Block in the late 1980's. Her musical influences range from NKOTB to Brand New to ... blah blah blah ... she doesn't trust the people who only like one single genre of music. Yes, she has a Brand New inspired tattoo. Outside of bands that she loves and movies that she loves, she cares only about her fuzzy grey cat. Even though it's nothing more than the internet to some, she takes the community to heart and plans to be around until the end.
If you have a question or a complaint about the community or any questions that are unrelated to the community, please do not hesitate to contact her directly. The best way to get in contact with her is by e-mail: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
