Comments from James Rettig

I think you're maybe doing this just to get a rise out of people, but I'm actually legitimately curious how you can be excited by a band like TWIABP (judging by your recent comments) when they are basically just doing things that Brand New did a decade ago? With arguably even cornier lyrics... (And this is coming from a fan!!)

That's what I'm hoping (presuming?) will happen... I don't think BN would want people listening to a leak of the album for two months.

August 15, 2017 on Brand New Announce Pre-Order For “Very Limited” Fifth Album
This is very true! Though all of them have been reissued in the past couple years and are pretty widely available at this point. I'd assume that this "very limited" run is just an early-bird special sort of thing and there will be a more general release down the line. If it's one thing Brand New knows how to do, it's make a ton of money off their fans :P
