From classic influences like The Cars, Squeeze, and The Beach Boys as well as more contemporary artists like Lifetime, Weezer and The Foo Fighters, Brand New has built an energetic, more pop-than-punk juggernaut since coming together in Long Island, NY in 2000. With clever harmonies and catchy hooks, their simple yet strong tunes are obvious teenage anthems about obvious teenage hurt which all kids can relate to. Triple Crown Records offers up a 2LP reissue of Brand New's highly sought after sophomore album Deja Entendu (French for "already heard") from 2003. Produced by Steven Haigler (Pixies, Quicksand), the breakthrough 11-track effort found the band taking a major leap forward and melding emo, punk-pop, indie rock and new wave styles with winning results. Home to the singles "Sic Transit Gloria...Glory Fades" and "The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows."
