About this album

In late 2005, Brand New started recording their third studio album in Oxford, Mississippi with producer Dennis Herring, but later dropped him in favor of Mike Sapone with whom they had worked on their first album.

On January 24, 2006, nine untitled demos for the album leaked onto the Internet. The band was disappointed to hear of the leak, however they performed the demos at live shows. In an interview with the band the question was asked, “Did the Internet leak of your demos affect the progress of the new album?” The responses were as follows:

“If it affected anything, I would say it did it in a good way ‘cause so many people were curious to hear what we have been doing—and for the most part, the record tracks don’t sound anything like the leaked demos.” — Garrett Tierney

“For me it was different. It had me pretty down for a while. No one likes to show their creation in mid-process, and those songs weren’t done. They were like blueprints. Just the plan, right? It put me in a state where I was under the impression that those songs had been wasted or something—that we had to go and write new things because those had been heard. Now, in retrospect, I want those songs to be on the album and many of them aren’t, and I’m probably more to blame for that than anyone. This record already feels incomplete to me without those tracks and probably will forever.” — Jesse Lacey

“I can relate to both of those sentiments.
