Brand New

by The Staff on September 12, 2013

Upstate Concert Hall, Wednesday


Post-hardcore (née emo) bands have always been a fairly reliable proposition in these parts; still, the enthusiasm surrounding the arrival of Long Island’s Brand New to Upstate Concert Hall this week is pretty astounding. This thing sold out quickly. The band haven’t released a new record since 2009, but speculation that Daisy would be their final release had perhaps stoked extra enthusiasm for their return to the road. On top of this, it was onstage at UCH in 2010 that Brand New announced their freedom from Interscope Records, so the room does carry some lore. Consider yourself lucky if you snagged a ticket. (Sept. 18, 7:30 PM, sold out, 1208 Route 146, Clifton Park, 371-0012)
