Brand New

Screw Howard Dean. You want young voters? We’ll give you young voters. Announcing the presidential candidacy of Chris Carrabba. The Dashboard Confessional frontman and professional tortured soul already possesses a freakish hold on impressionable young minds. And take a look at his cabinet: an army of bands such as Thrice, Thursday and Brand New leading the charge with the emo-pop-punk seal of approval stamped on their foreheads. What Brand New is doing may be becoming old hat, but the quartet is one of the more promising up-and-coming bands to perform on the Carrabba platform, a grassroots campaign to ensure that no mood-tortured fifteen-year-old girl in America will be left behind.
