Brand New unexpectedly dropped their first new album in 8 years entitled Science Fiction last Thursday. Vinyl pre-orders for the album mysteriously appeared via Instagram early last Tuesday. The first 500 people to pre-order the album on vinyl were overnighted a copy on a 61 minute single-track CD-R. Redditors immediately blew up the Brand New subreddit with track names and artwork they had stumbled upon by using the app Shazam. There’s been a lot of speculation that this will be the band’s last album. If so, it’s a perfect ending.
You can buy the new album on the Procrastinate! Music Traitors site here.
You can also stream the album on Spotify and Apple Music.
