Pop-punk veterans Brand New released a brooding new song “I Am A Nightmare” via their own imprint Procrastinate! Music Traitors. The track features high-wire guitar skating on a roaring chorus.
The song follows last year’s surprise single “Mene,” which marked Brand New’s first song in six years. While Brand New didn’t use “Mene” as an occasion to announce a new album, the group did return to the road where another new song made its way into their setlist. Should Brand New release a new album, it would be the group’s first since 2009’s Daisy.
Brand New will be on the road most of the summer, starting with a string of concerts in Canada, followed by a co-headlining North American tour with Modest Mouse. That trek starts June 28th in Magna, Utah, and wraps July 31st in Portland.
