Humankind has been concerned with random physical processes since posthistoric times. Examples are divination (cleromancy, reading messages in normal patterns), the use of allotment in the Athenian democracy or the frequent references to the casting of lots found in the Old Testament.

Despite the prevalence of gambling in all times and cultures, for a long time there was little western inquiry into the subject. Though Gerolamo Cardano and Galileo wrote about games of chance, the first mathematical treatments were given by Blaise Pascal, Pierre de Fermat and Christiaan Huygens. The classical version of probability theory that they developed proceeds from the assumption that outcomes of random processes are equally likely; thus they were among the first to give a definition of randomness in statistical terms. The concept of statistical randomness was later developed into the concept of information entropy in information theory.

In the early 1960s Gregory Chaitin, Andrey Kolmogorov and Ray Solomonoff introduced the notion of algorithmic randomness, in which the randomness of a sequence depends on whether it is possible to compress it.

The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me

Album cover of The Devil and God Are Raging Inside MeAt the end of 2004, Brand New appeared on the cover of Alternative Press magazine, who had deemed their upcoming album the "most anticipated of 2005" but little to no information was actually provided about any new material. The band had very little contact with fans about new music or shows until in June 2005 when their Web site was finally updated, announcing that the band had started recording and confirming long-standing rumours that in early 2005 Lacey had been hospitalized for appendicitis, with the Web site specifically mentioning he had been "sick," "had surgery" and that there "were multiple things wrong with [him]," but stated that "most of [his problems] have been fixed."

In late 2005, the band started recording their highly-anticipated third album in Oxford, Mississippi, with producer Dennis Herring, but later dropped him in favor of Mike Sapone with whom they had worked on their first album. Also, this album has aided in giving this band the title of "America's Radiohead" by Alternative Press magazine.

Main article: New Album Demos
On January 24, 2006 nine demos recorded in preparation of the new album were leaked onto the internet. All songs were untitled and were of unknown origin with only with a comment attached that they were "demos that probably won't be on Fight Off Your Demons", the then rumored title for the new album, based on the band's new website address. In the following months, with Brand New doing their first tour dates in over 18 months, several songs from the demos were performed with a full band, and some by just Jesse - some were fleshed out and had new lyrics. New songs had their debut as well during the summer tour dates. There was much speculation about the names of songs and the album name but very little solid information. Brand New began their first tour in years on June 20, 2006 at New Jersey's famous Starland Ballroom, where Jesse stated that the album had been finished the previous day.

After much speculation and rumor regarding the final release date, and Alternative Press publishing a preliminary date of October 10, 2006, as the release date, the official website announced that the new album would finally be released on November 21, 2006 in North America, and the day before in Europe. Soon after, a track listing and the unusual cover art were revealed on as well as new information regarding the release of the first actual single - "Sowing Season" - one of the new tracks previewed during the summer tour. A rerecording of "Untitled 08 (Yeah)" from the demos, the single finally got a public airing on radio on October 19, 2006, and appeared on their MySpace page a day later. "Untitled 06", which made the album with slightly altered lyrics, was re-recorded and released as a bonus track on the UK album as "Luca (Reprise)". According to Lacey in a radio interview from the UK (BBC Radio 1 with Zane Lowe), the title The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me is taken from a conversation he had with his friend about a friend who is schizophrenic.[8]

In late December 2006, an unusual video was released for the instrumental track "Untitled", also known as "--", which mainly consists of a man spray painting a wall with "evil and good are raging Inside me" and correcting it to give the album title. On January 16, 2007, "Jesus Christ" was announced as being the "official" first single from the album. On January 19, the band performed the song on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. They performed it again on February 26 on the Late Show with David Letterman on the same episode as guest Jake Gyllenhaal.[9] From January to April, the band will tour Europe, USA and Canada.
