Rumors about Brand New's disbandment have cropped up constantly in the 9 years since the pop-punk stalwart's last full length release, Daisy. So it's not entirely surprising that its newly unveiled shirt designs reveal a "2000–2018" insignia—a sign that the end may truly be a couple years nigh. Nonetheless, the (ostensible) news about the planned breakup was accompanied by a new single "I Am A Nightmare" and the promise of a new album by the end of the year. The group is joined by another indie legend band with a similarly longevity beyond its golden years: Modest Mouse, which also just broke a protracted creative silence with its first release in years, Stranger to Ourselves.
