Jesse Lacey - Play Crack The Sky (Live Dallas 10/3/15)

Jesse Lacey - Play Crack The Sky Dallas 2015


In this video, Brand New front man Jesse Lacey makes a heartfelt speech to the crowd in which he hints at the band's looming retirement. Hopefully we get to see a new album from them before they call it quits, as we've been waiting forever. After his little speech, he launches into a really great version of "Play Crack The Sky". This video is a must-see for any Brand New fan. I've included a little transcript of the speech via the Youtube comments.

"What’s funny is [that] I’m 37, and when you start playing music, night after night, from decades ago, you start to reflect on who you were when you were younger and the things you wrote music about. A lot of what we write music about is the uncertainty of being young, and trying to figure out who you are in the world, and what it’s going to be like when you grow older, and who it is you’re going to find, right? That’s what all of these songs are about—that’s what this song is about. It’s really hard when you’re young and you’re like, ‘This is never gonna work; I’m never gonna figure this out.’ And then one day you just do. And for me, I did when I got married. My wife helped me through everything. So now, when I play these songs—and she’s six months pregnant, by the way—all I think about is, ‘I’m so glad I don’t have to feel this way anymore.’ It’s a really great feeling. I never have to worry about finding someone to date ever again in my entire life. So here is to all of you finding that person in your life, and never having to worry about your life being an analogy for dying in a shipwreck, like this song is."
