The other day, I saw a pretty great Rig Rundown on Premier Guitar with Jesse Lacey of Brand New. Now, I hate to admit this, but I was unfamiliar with Brand New. Jesse is rockin’ a Jazzmaster, so I was intrigued, and had to learn about this band. Again.. I’m late to the party. But oh well.. fun to learn about new bands.
After some YouTube exploration, I came to the conclusion, that I definitely like their lives stuff the best. The studio recordings are great, but I loved the energy of the band’s live performance for sure. The one that caught my eye/ear was this performance at the Riot Fest Chicago last year:
Anyways, Premier Guitar did a great interview and went into great detail on Jesse Lacey and Vincent Accardi. For those of you not following Premier Guitar on YouTube.. you should probably get on that!
