New Found Glory toured for the majority of last year celebrating their 20 Year Anniversary, playing 2 records in full every night from the band’s 70+ song catalog. This will be the first opportunity for fans to mosh and sing along to songs from the band’s most recent release, Makes Me Sick. The album landed at the #1 spot on the Record Label Independent Current Albums chart. Additionally, the album secured numerous charting positions including the #2 spot on the Current Alternative Albums, #5 for Top Current Rock Albums and the #39 spot on the Billboard Top 200.
In addition to success with fans, Makes Me Sick made a wave in press outlets like Nylon who shared that “With Makes Me Sick, New Found Glory’s latest album, the band continues its history of punk experimentation, raging against the technology machine while acquiescing to it.” Additionally, Alternative Press praised that “Makes Me Sick combines the fun factor of albums like Sticks And Stones and Radiosurgery with some of the musical poise and maturity of Coming Home-and, in the process, creates enough slight sonic diversions to give longtime fans something new to enjoy” and Newsday shared that “all these pop-punk anthems champion taking chances and evolving.”
Over their span of 20 non-stop years in the music industry, New Found Glory have released 9 studio albums, 1 live album, 2 EPs and 3 cover albums. New Found Glory is Jordan Pundik (lead vocals), Chad Gilbert (guitar), Ian Grushka (bass guitar) and Cyrus Bolooki (drums).
