Triple Crown joined forces with Razor & Tie for the 10 year anniversary edition of “Your Favorite Weapon”, the album that put Brand New on the post-hardcore map. It was a great album then and it’s still a good album now that it’s been remastered. There is a lame joke to be made about a band called Brand New re-releasing a 10-year-old album, but let’s not and say I did. The deluxe edition comes with new artwork and a bunch of demos, three of which you’ve never heard before.

The Brand New you’ll hear on “Your Favorite Weapon” is obviously not the same as the evolved and matured Brand New of 2006’s “The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me” or 2009’s “Daisy” but this is still worth listening to and not only because of nostalgia.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
