brandnewThis October Brand New will embark on a fall headlining tour of North America in support of their highly anticipated new full length album, Daisy, out September 22nd on DGC/Interscope/Procrastinate Music Traitors. 

The coast to coast trek kicks off on October 1st in Cleveland, OH and the band has tapped a few of their friends as main support along the way. For the first leg they’ll be joined by Manchester Orchestra, for the second leg Thrice will be joining them and on the third and last leg they will be joined by Glassjaw.

The fall North American tour will follow main stage performances at both Reading and Leeds – where Brand New are fifth on the bill behind Radiohead, Bloc Party, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Vampire Weekend.  These festival dates in August will mark their second trip to the UK this year. 

The band headed over in June and sold out ever single date including Manchester Academy (2370 capacity), Birmingham @ 02 Academy (3000 capacity) and The Forum in London (2300 capacity). 

They followed the UK dates up with a small US tour in July of underplays that sold out each venue in record time including shows at Slim’s in SF, Epicentre in San Diego and the Troubadour in LA.

The Music Hall of Williamsburg which Bowery Presents’ Josh Moore said, “There’s no way to know how quickly it actually sold out because it was literally gone instantly and the good thing is we know all the tickets went to actual fans and not re-sellers.”

Over the past decade Brand New has made a name for itself with the release of three full length albums and numerous tours of North America, Europe, UK, Australia and Asia. 

With more than 1.2 million records sold in North America alone and a touring history that is enviable, Brand New is ready to set the world on fire again with Daisy – out September 22nd.  Don’t miss them when they come to a town near you this fall!
