Review:: Resurrection | New Found Glory
“I’m just dust in the breeze, but I wanna be a hurricane.”
Reflections on personal growth and burnt bridges accentuate New Found Glory’s eighth studio album, aptly titled Resurrection. Combining catchy hooks and a sound that is distinctly ‘pop punk,’ NFG solidifies their spot as top dogs in their genre with this solid release.
Addictive choruses and anthemic verses are sure to have listeners at least bobbing their heads through their first time through. The album starts powerful with “Selfless” before changing the tempo with “Angel.” However, the monumentum never slows down, as the band presents the album’s thesis in “Stubborn”, proclaiming, “I’m not trying to win you back, I’m not on my knees. I’m just owe you this much: I’m not holding grudges anymore.”
With very few misses, sly digs and strong instrumentals make Resurrection a must listen for fans of the pop punk genre.

Review:: Small Town Favorites | Stages & Stereos
Typically when a concert-goer is unfamiliar with an opener’s music, their newest release is the first one they’ll turn to in order to ease their curiosity. As the opener for Mayday Parade, Man Overboard, and Cartel on the Glamour Kills Tour this year, it was important for the band to bring their A-game with their Small Town Favorites EP. And if this record is any indicator, kids are going to be showing up to the venues early.
Daniel Lancaster boasts an impressive vocal range over the course of the album’s five songs, reaching trademark pop-punk highs, smooth lows, and a sounds reminiscent of The Killers’ Brandon Flowers (check the intro to “Coup de Grace).
While the first three-fifths of the album are enjoyable, the concluding two songs are the gems on Small Town Favorites. “1990” is a tempo-shifting singalong, complete with an infectious chorus, stomping drumwork from Donnie Webb, and a quick guitar solo courtesy of Zach Schweizer, that drive through the song’s midway point.
The self-titled closing track gives Lancaster one last outlet to show his skill, complimented greatly by the group’s back “whoa-oh-ohs” behind him. The feeling of growing up and living in a small town is summed up in the simple chorus – “To hell with it, to hell with it, I’m aware of everything that I’ve done. I’m not done.”
Small Town Favorites does what a good pop-punk album should do – it gives its listeners something to sing to, and more importantly, something to relate to. The songs here are lined with emotion, and make no effort to hide it away. The GK Tour has a reputation of taking some huge acts across the country while creating others, and if this album is what Stages and Stereos can do, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a lot more of them down the road.
