    On this week’s episode of Encore I am once again joined by special guest Thomas Nassiff. Thomas returns to the show to discuss the album we spent most of our time recording this show waiting on … Brand New’s Science Fiction. This episode of the show differs from the previous episode in that we we spend most of the time talking about the album roll-out and the industry ramifications of this new album. We talk about the band going #1 on the charts, how this specific roll-out was the only way they could live up to expectations, and the chance of there ever being a band like this again.

    Sometimes I have to pinch myself that this actually happened.

    I am halfway through the podcast and just wanted to say: Man, I have missed the interaction between Jason and Thomas. Glad he is back for this episode. OK, back to listening.

    If I smile with my teeth, bet you'd believe me

    Taking a flight to Portland this morning - very stoked to listen on the plane! Thanks Jason and Thomas!

    Thomas going with the "subconsciously plugging 2005 Jimmy Falllon rom-com, Fever Pitch" approach.

    Two podcasts about Brand New and still no mention of blakebeats. It's sad, really.

    This was a great episode. I loved the discussion in the latter half of the episode about what the "new" Brand New for the next generation could look like. I'm not as old as Jason or Thomas, but I already feel occasionally like there are some bands that have absolutely enchanted their fans in a way I almost can't understand. The primary example for myself is Twenty One Pilots, and I do feel like for a lot of kids right now they are what Brand New has been for a lot of us.

    I don't know if I'll personally have another Brand New. I mean, BN is one of a kind and irreplaceable, so it's not like they'll ever be totally supplanted. But, I do think there are young artists making music today (Foxing, Julien Baker, Pinegrove, etc.) that could one day mean as much to me as Brand New does. I wasn't able to grow up with BN, but I might be able to with those artists, and that is incredibly exciting to think about.

    Jason, your last podcast on this album got me to check it out. I know it is weird to be on this website and not really be a fan of Brand New but I just couldn't get into their previous albums. This one was different. It hit me hard and is my favorite record of the year so far. Thank you for the podcast and convincing me to give it a listen.
