Brand New – Your Favorite Weapon (Reissue) LP


Brand new, one of the hardest bands to search both on Google and on eBay, released their first album in 2001. It was titled Your Favorite Weapon and was filled to the brim with power-chords, and pop/rock riffs. Although they stopped playing most of the tracks after their second album for many years due to a rather large change in sound, I am quite the fan of this debut from one of my favorite bands.

To celebrate it’s 10th birthday, this stunning album has been re-released and re-pressed. I was extremely glad to hear news of the re-issue, mainly because the original pressings cost about $150 second hand. Anyway – this new issue has BRAND NEW cover art (ohh god… did I really just do that?), new liner notes, online downloads for remastered album and demo tracks AND the exclusion of the song “… My Nine Rides Shotgun”. All of the previous additions are great except for the song exclusion. I’m not sure why it was excluded, since it was a bonus track for the Japanese version(?) and the vinyl edition. The song itself does have a different sort of a feel to it though I think, which could have been a factor.

The actual vinyl

With new cover art, it looks very cool – and a massive jump further on the awesome scale when you feel the embossed “your favorite weapon” near the bottom of the front cover. It then opens out for a gatefold of one picture then flipped for the other side. You’ll see what I mean in the photos. I’m not sure why they did this with such a wide canvas for them to put anything they like. They could have just as easy put the slide in lyric sheet in the inner gatefold which could be seen as making more sense. Though don’t get me wrong – it’s still not a horrid middle to a gatefold.

As I said there is a lyric sheet insert which has a photo of everyone in the band followed by lyrics and credits. The actual vinyl comes in 4 variants (just for the re-issue), I have the black but there is also supposedly 500 CLEAR, 500 LIGHT BLUE and 1000 WHITE. Before I forget, the middle of each vinyl size just has a photo of Jesse(?) jumping up with a guitar.

Really depends where you get it.

Ebay comes up around $40 to $70 for the re-issue. But if you go to shopradiocast they were still selling them for $30 last time I was on there. So just shop around and see what is in your price range. Though it depends if it goes out of print soon – and if it does, then expect the price to jump very high.
