Brand New, consisting of Jesse Lacey, Vincent Accardi, Garrett Tierney, Brian Lane, started in 2000 in Long Island, New York. They made their mark in the rock and emo music scene in the 2000’s. Brand New were able to stick out amongst the crowd and remain a prominent band within the emo music scene while many other bands at the time faded away. They were praised at the beginning of their career for sticking to creating artistic statements instead of focusing on mainstream acceptance like many of the bands comparable to them did.
With their extensive discography, they have most recently released their fifth album Science Fiction. They spontaneously released this new album on 17th August 2017. It was Brand New’s first number one album on the Billboard 200 and it reached success both artistically and commercially.
