NEW RELEASES: BRAND NEW'S PUNK MOVE (UPDATE)

Brand New’s Science Fiction, released wide on Saturday, will debut at #1. Released on their Procrastinate! Music Traitors label, this is the band’s first album in eight years. It will also be their last.

The emo band out of Long Island confirmed their break-up with a T-shirt indicating they were calling it quits in 2018.

Brand New previously peaked at #6 with 2009’s Daisy (DGC/Interscope). The new album is currently #1 at iTunes and in Amazon’s Digital Music store.

Our projection, based on limited info, is 56-61k SPS, 55-60k album. Other projections:

Neck Deep (Hopeless) 26-30k SPS, 24-27k album
A$AP Ferg (RCA) 21-24k, 4-6k
Dave East (Mass Appeal/Def Jam) 17-22k SPS, 11-14k

In political news, the President reportedly will not be participating in the Kennedy Center Honors, on the grounds that Kennedy was his least-favorite veejay.
