BRAND NEW SCIENCE FIC­TION

Total Guitar - - MONITOR -

It’s been an ag­o­nis­ing eight-year wait for fans of the cult pop-punk-turned-alt-rock­ers, but de­spite stat­ing that they’re ‘done’, Brand New have re­turned with an al­bum that al­most ri­vals their 2006 opus, Devil And God Are Rag­ing In­sid­eMe. This al­bum is a typ­i­cally fraught lis­ten, but plays host to the most am­bi­tious gui­tar work yet from off­set fans Jesse Lacey and Vin­nie Ac­cardi, the lat­ter de­liv­er­ing the 90s-in­formed so­los he’s long threat­ened to un­leash, form­ing the crux of 137’ s crush­ing crescendo. Awk­ward blues stom­per 451 is a slight stick­ing point, but if this does in­deed prove to be the band’s last al­bum, it’s a wor­thy swan song in­deed.
