Brand New / Safety in Numbers is a split EP by the American bands Brand New and Safety in Numbers, released on March 6, 2002. The split was originally between Brand New and Reggie and the Full Effect, but plans fell through.[1]

After recording their debut album Your Favorite Weapon in 2001, Long Island band Brand New teamed up with their then labelmate Safety in Numbers for a split EP. Each band contributed a new song and a cover song. Brand New gave the EP a B-side called "Moshi Moshi" and a cover of the Love Spit Love song "Am I Wrong" which was popularized on the indie scene in the mid 90s. Safety In Numbers, a group started by Hot Rod Circuit leadman Andy Jackson, had a song called "No Use" and a cover of the popular Journey song "Faithfully". The EP was available to fans of both bands through internet retailers and was specifically sold with the pre-sale for Brand New's full length Deja Entendu (2003) album.
