It’s safe to say that pop punk is still alive and well! Four-piece, New Found Glory,
is out touring with the boys in Turnstile, This Wild Life and Turnover on The
Sleep When I Die tour which is ready to give you a night of fun your surely
won’t forget!

The crowd is greeted by a dark stage as they wait for New Found
Glory to perform when a small projector flicks on. The dark backdrop
illuminates with a video of Judy Garland singing the iconic “Battle Hymm
Of The Republic.”  As the crowd
joins in and chants away, the video fades and is greeted by
“Understatment,” off New Found Glory’s iconic 2002 album, Sticks
and Stones
.

The rest of the show was filled with the type of energy you only
can witness at a New Found Glory show. Even frontman Jordan Pundik was jumping
around with his foot in a knee-high brace – does it get more pop punk than that? With
only about a week left on this tour, make sure you make your way out and catch
some of the action!

Review:: Resurrection | New Found Glory

image

“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.
