Brand New add two more December shows, address ticketing issues

Brand New have added two more December tour dates to the four pre-existing west and east coast dates.

The two additional dates are December 8 at The Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA, and December 22 at The Bell House in Brooklyn, NY.

Regular tickets for the Brooklyn show go on sale today at 2 EST. It is unclear when tickets for the West Hollywood show go on sale at this time. All ticket info can be found here.

The pre-existing dates can be found below.

December 9: The Observatory, Santa Ana, CA

December 10: The Observatory, Santa Ana, CA

December 20: The Paramount, Huntington, NY

December 21: Starland Ballroom, Sayreville, NJ

In response to the frenzy surrounding these shows and the ticketing issues that scalpers and other third parties have caused, the band released a lengthy statement assuring fans that they are doing all they can to make sure "these tickets end up in the hands of the people who are actually going to jump around with the bands".

The band is also encouraging fans who will be attending these shows to bring two cans of non-perishable food items that will be donated to charity. Anyone who donates will be entered into a raffle to win "an exclusive Brand New artifact".

Check out the full statement from the band that was released today below.

"Seasons Greetings.

In the spirit of humanity and togetherness, Brand New are adding a single show to each coast in December. We will be playing one at the Troubadour in West Hollywood on December 8th, and the other at The Bell House in Brooklyn on December 22nd. (Four & Twenty better get baking.)

Fanclub sales through Ducat King start at 12pm Local time TODAY. Additional on sale for Brooklyn will be TODAY at 2pm EST. All of the tickets for LA will be sold through Ducat King.
 
 These shows are smaller, and we are doing everything we can to make sure these tickets end up in the hands of the people who are actually going to jump around with the bands. We are not blind to the ticketing issues these shows have presented, and we are doing everything we can to learn how to best handle these kinds of problems. Because of the short amount of time running up to the scheduling of these dates, solutions are fewer, but we were able to reclaim a number of tickets from third party websites and will soon be releasing them to the public for their original price.
 There’s gonna be a barricade front of house at the Troubadour. Don’t know if that’s relevant. I’m just trying to supply all the information here. Didn’t want those with stage crawling aspirations to be disappointed.

Lastly, we will be hosting food drives at all 6 shows this month! We will release the info for which charities will be collecting at each show soon, but for now we want to encourage EVERYONE to bring 2 cans of non perishable food items each, please. When you donate at the show you will receive a raffle ticket to win “an exclusive Brand New artifact”. I don’t know exactly what that means, but I’m sure it will be a signed drum head or poster or something cool like that, and the raffle will happen on site, probably while we are sucking on oxygen tanks in between album sets. Fun.
We hope your Black Friday was full of unbridled spending and pain. Gotta learn to suplex if you want those deals.
 
 We will see you soon,
 Someone in Brand New
