Brand New is a rock band from Long Island, New York. Formed in 2000, the band consists of Jesse Lacey (lead vocals, guitars), Vincent Accardi (guitars, backing vocals), Garrett Tierney (bass guitar), and Brian Lane (drums, percussion). From 2005 until 2013 the band also included Derrick Sherman (guitar, backing vocals, keyboards).
In the late 1990s, Jesse Lacey, Garrett Tierney and Brian Lane were all members of the band The Rookie Lot. They eventually split off from the other members of the group, and in 2000 formed Brand New in Merrick, New York. The band signed to Triple Crown Records and in 2001 released their debut studio album, Your Favorite Weapon. Their second album, Déjà Entendu, was released in 2003 and marked a stylistic change for the band. The album’s first two singles, “The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows” and “Sic Transit Gloria… Glory Fades”, both received airplay on MTV2 and Fuse TV, entering the top 40 on the United Kingdom Singles Chart. Deja Entendu was eventually certified gold in the United States.
On December 2, the band made their Leaked Demos 2006 available for the first time, releasing it on a limited edition red cassette tape with a digital download card included.
