New Album Out Now From New Found Glory

New Found Glory, pop-punk legends, have now released their 9th official album, Makes Me Sick. Nine albums is pretty impressive, and this one is plenty up to par with the first eight. New Found Glory’s sound still packs a punch, and Makes Me Sick proves that the band is still capable of delivering amazing music even after 20 years. The new album takes risks, introducing new sound and style from New Found Glory.

Guitarist Chad Gilbert says, “We put more of ourselves into Makes Me Sick than any other of our albums. Lyrically and musically. Going where no NFG record has gone before.” If that isn’t enough to get you to buy it, preview a few of the tracks on iTunes or Spotify and see for yourself just how this album differs from the previous New Found Glory records.

The band has partnered with Urban Outfitters, everybody’s favorite overpriced hipster heaven, to release a limited edition vinyl of Makes Me Sick. Not only that, but New Found Glory is currently on a massive anniversary tour for 20 Years of Pop Punk, with venues already sold out everywhere. Only a few select dates still have tickets available, so get them now, and you can also get some exclusive bundles through Ticketmaster that include a download of the new album!

New Music Video From New Found Glory

Florida's own, New Found Glory, has released the music video for "Happy Being Miserable."This is the first single from their upcoming album, Makes Me Sick, due out April 28th via Hopeless Records!

Check out the video for "Happy Being Miserable" below!

Directed by Max Moore in Nashville, TN, the creative concept for the video came from the band, who wanted to do their own version of the iconic puking scene from the movie "Stand By Me."

On the video, guitarist Chad Gilbert shares, "NFG has always done a lot of pop culture movie references throughout our career, from cover songs to t-shirt spoofs. So with our album being called 'Makes Me Sick,' it seemed like the perfect opportunity to take that iconic scene and give it our own spin. Or maybe we just wanted to show that all bad situations can have a redemptive outcome if you let it. Are you just gonna let life puke all over you? Or are you gonna look beyond yourself, pull people together, and celebrate being alive."

New Found Glory Announces "20 Years of Pop Punk" Tour

Taste the edgy-ness.

 

Has it really been that long? I suppose so.

New Found Glory, or “NFG” if you’re cool, was a staple in the angsty teen playlist throughout the early 2000’s. Originally from Florida, they came together in 1997 and have been steadily releasing albums ever since. Singer Jordan Pundik’s nasal-y voice and surprising range gave the band an edge over the most other lip pierced groups of that time.

Their discography comes out to a whopping 15 albums (greatest hits and deluxe versions included) which is impressive for any band. From tracks like the classic “My Friends Over You” to newer ones like “Vicious Love” they’ve stuck to a similar successful formula, filling their songs with short chugging power chords underneath some simple riffs that easily become ear-worms in everyone’s head. Most people agree they were a key founder of the “Pop Punk” style but perhaps that wasn’t the best thing ever invented.

Since its birth, the genre has suffered some insufferable bands and appears to be on its last legs. But don’t expect it to go out with a bang, expect a slow, excruciating death with tours like these.

Undoubtedly they’ll fill concert halls and dimly lit venues as they always have. They’ve gone through lineup changes and various collaborations and side projects but still manage to stay loyal to their sound and their fans, and we respect them for that 

Their countrywide trek starts in March and is sure to attract all the hand tattooed 30 somethings around. Check the dates below and get some info/merch on their website here!!
