Jesse Lacey confirms Brand New’s breakup: “We’re done”

on July 01, 2016, 9:35am

Frontman Jesse Lacey has insinuated that Brand New’s shelf life is nearing expiration. Last year, Lacey announced the band’s impending breakup during a concert in Nashville, and merch created for this summer’s tour seemingly confirmed as much: “Brand New, 2000 – 2018” one t-shirt reads.

Last night, during Brand New’s tour kick-off with Modest Mouse, Lacey reaffirmed the band’s disbandment, telling the audience, “We’re done. Oh yeah, we’re done, and it makes nights like this all the more special so thanks for being here.” Watch fan-shot video of Lacey’s announcement above.

Before calling it quits, Brand New will spend the summer touring with Modest Mouse. They’ve also teased a new album, their first in seven years.
