here’s the first of what’s to be many, many posts on the promo run to brand new’s ridiculously anticipated album, daisy. the first single hit the radio a couple of hours ago and radio rips have begun to hit the webs shortly thereafter.
i’ve only listened to it once, and while i like the song a good amount, it doesn’t hold up to anything on the devil and god. looking forward to hearing a lot more about this album in the near future. i’ll repost this when the official single leaks. what does everyone think?
daisy is in stores september 22.

the good folks at b-sides r us got their hands on a bootleg of a brand new show that took place this past friday. i must say this set list is chock full of your favorite weapon nostalgia, so if you’ve been longing to hear these songs in their most current state, be sure to check this out.
not to mention, there’s a cover of neutral milk hotel’s “oh comely,” weezer’s “el scorcho” and some true gems like “flying at tree level” and the audio of some of the new songs.
setlist/info and the download of the entire set can be found here.
in related brand new news (ha), the band announced a september 22 release date for their unbelievably anticipated album, titled daisy. can’t say that i’m excited about the title much, but i’m sure the album will deliver.
also, hit the jump for a video of a new song tentatively titled “lay here on the bed.”

mr. songz drops his new mixtape, with some explanation:
Many of you may ask, Why ANTICIPATION? Well lets break it down shall we:
An⋅tic⋅i⋅pa⋅tion [an-tis-uh-pey-shuhn] -noun
1. realization in advance, intuition; foretaste.
2. Musically – a tone introduced in advance of its harmony so that it sounds against the preceding chord.
Musically, I’m currently in a creative space like no other. I feel as though whenever a mic is put in front of me, I can do no wrong. At a time in the music industry where album sales are low, fans are fickle, inconsistent, or more into the various songs than they are the particular artist, I feel that I must give u a reason to love me. Embed in you a desire to love me and an appreciation for the music. I must show you that not only do I LOVE what I do but I also do it well.
The creation of ANTICIPATION began after I presented READY to my label the first time. I just started recording on my days off and the music felt great and decided that I’d rather share the music than let it sit and be idle. This is music without politics, without creative boundaries.
Troy (my mentor and founder & CEO of Songbook Ent.) and I have been making music since I was 15. There was a time when thoughts of monotonous melodies or redundant choruses wasn’t THE KEY to making a hit record. Music that just felt good. Although they’re present at times the boundaries are endless in this body of work, giving you a (1) realization in advance to READY.
What do I mean by READY? Well, lets do this one more time.
Read⋅y [red-ee] –adjective
1. completely prepared or in fit condition for immediate action or use
I like to say don’t get READY…STAY READY!!! But until then…Here is ANTICIPATION…
