Renowned for their energetic live shows, A New Found Glory toured up and down the East Coast in the late ’90s, selling out the entire pressing of their 1997 debut EP, It’s All About the Girls, along the way. (The EP was released by Fiddler Records, which later reissued Girls with new cover art in 2003.) The full-length debut effort Nothing Gold Can Stay followed in 1999 on Drive-Thru Records, and the album was reissued later that year when A New Found Glory signed a major-label contract with MCA. Another EP, 2000’s From the Screen to Your Stereo, found the boys tackling a number of cover songs; the disc also paved the way for the release of the band’s first gold-selling album, the self-titled New Found Glory, which appeared later that year. The latter album marked the official debut of the band’s new moniker, which dropped the indefinite article A from their original name. A high-profile tour with blink-182, an opening slot on the Warped Tour, and an appearance in the teen flick American Pie 2 helped increase New Found Glory’s exposure, and they stepped back into the studio at the end of 2001 to work on a follow-up record.

“I never get starstruck, but I couldn’t breathe,” Gilbert says. “People don’t know what star-struck is until they’ve met Tom Hanks.” The story goes like this: The son of New Found Glory’s A&R guy at MCA Records (now Universal Music Group) wanted to learn “Hit or Miss” for a talent show, and while the band was visiting the MCA exec’s house and teaching him the song, the son’s friend — Hanks’ son —  stopped by, with Hanks himself as chaperone.

But Gilbert and Pundik emphasize that the tour is “all about the fans,” and the plan from the jump was to celebrate in small clubs, like The Troubadour in West Hollywood (capacity 500) or The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, N.J. (1,000), where the guys and their closest fans could mix it up and sing the oldies like they did at Cheers — the Miami bar where NFG (then A New Found Glory) played its first show in 1997.

“I went and bought a couple of new pedals and I’m in my living room, playing 75 different songs and practicing guitar leads we haven’t played in years,” guitarist Chad Gilbert tells Billboard. “We aren’t phoning this in, like, ‘Cool, we just get to play old songs.’ It’s more like, ‘How do we do this and blow people’s minds?’”

2. Resurrection “Number two is Resurrection. That was our first record as a four piece and I’m putting it in second place because it was our easiest record to make; there was no egos or insecurities involved whatsoever. I feel like it fits who we are better than a lot of our albums, too. It spoke truth about a lot of the things that we were going through and I think it did it in a way that was fresh for our fans, and they really cling to that album because it’s such an honest record. We really wanted to make a record that people would hear and feel connected to, like when we first started and there were stories that people really latched on to. I think Resurrection did that again, and I’ve seen people getting lyric tattoos because they really stand by them and they feel like they have a voice again, which the last couple of records didn’t have. There’s a catchy song, and then there’s a catchy song where you really feel the lyrics, and that’s the difference – do you know what I mean? I also love the fact that it’s four members playing four parts, and we didn’t layer a bunch of guitars or anything like that. And everywhere we play in the world, whether it’s Australia, Japan, England or the US, when we play the new songs it’s awesome and everyone sings along.”

On February 25, 2014, the band announced an 11 date UK tour with main support by The Story So Far, stopping in cities around the country including London, Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool, Cardiff and Leeds. On May 18, the band announced on their Facebook page that they would release a new album in the fall of 2014. They also mentioned that it would be released by Hopeless Records. On May 27, the band announced that they had left Epitaph Records and would be signing to Hopeless Records, where their new album will be released in the fall of 2014. On August 5, they released a new single “Selfless” from the upcoming album Resurrection. The band also filmed a music video to release with the single. On September 9, they released a new single “Ready and Willing” from the upcoming album Resurrection. The band also filmed a music video to release with the single. On October 7, 2014, they released Resurrection. On July 22, 2015, the band announced they would reissue the album on October 8, retitled Resurrection: Ascension. It features two brand new studio tracks, two reworked songs and three acoustic tracks. On the day of announcement, they also rereleased “Vicious Love” featuring Hayley Williams on vocals.

“The goal is never be a copycat of ourselves,” Gilbert adds. “It’s more along the lines of taking risks in our music. You think of your first album, when we had no clue what we were doing, we had no clue if people were going to like it or not, we did it because we love it. And that went into Makes Me Sick, what we put into every record is never settling for what people expect of us. To keep growing and doing it in a new way, that’s the goal.”

“Four would be Sticks and Stones. I think it’s our biggest selling record and My Friend’s Over You is still an anthem today; I feel like that song is even larger than our band and it will live on forever even after the band is done. We were coming off the success of our self-titled record at the time, and we did a tour of the US with Blink-182 where we had to close with Hit or Miss every night because that was the song, and we were wondering if we could ever write another song to live up to that. My Friend’s Over You was actually the last song we wrote for the album, and now that’s our song and we have to close all our shows with that one. Another thing that’s crazy about that record is all the bands that have been named after it; All Time Low are named after Head On Collision and The Story So Far got their name from the last song on the record. So that one is a very important record to me, even though it’s not my all time favourite. It probably is number one to a lot of our fans though.”

When New Found Glory first started, a messy photocopied piece of paper was the way in which we would tell people about our shows. Never could we have imagined that such a simple, lost concept would now serve as the visual spark to reignite a lost memory. Stories Of A Different Kind is a storybook, but not a beginning-to-end narrative. It’s a journey through a time period that pre-dates social media: a time that newer fans might not know had existed and older fans can look back on. We are very excited to share it with everyone. You’re just as big of the reason why it exists as we are.

“I think five would have to be Coming Home. I like Coming Home a lot. That record was very ballsy for us. I guess we were one of the biggest pop punk bands of the time, and after the self-titled record, Sticks and Stones and Catalyst I think there was a specific thing that people expected from us, and that album was what they least expected. It had like piano rock and all this other stuff going on, and I loved that. The songs from that record don’t go over that well live, even though it’s the most requested album from our back catalogue, but I’d say it’s more of a band’s record; most people that I meet from other bands say that one is their favourite New Found Glory record. It seems to be the one that bands love, and I like that it’s respected musically, but I think it could have had a little more balls and grit to it in the production department. I think it could’ve bridged a little bit more on the distorted side, but overall I love the songs and it was definitely a record that made us realise we could do anything that we wanted in the sense that no one in the mainstream can be on top forever. And we never thought we’d be a massive band in the first place, so we just needed to keep doing what felt good in our guts, which meant making a record that was a natural reflection of who we were at the time. I think people identify with bands that they perceive to be sincere, and they’ll root for you even if they don’t love the record because they know that it’s real.”

Because you four have been together for so long, you think it wouldn’t be the best to throw in somebody new at this point?CG: Yeah that, and I think it wouldn’t feel right. I wouldn’t expect our fans to get used to some new member of the band. And also, we’re a punk rock band. Most punk rock bands just have a guitar, bass and drums. The Descendents, the Ramones, you name ’em, it’s just how it’s always been. A lot of our songs aren’t lacking a second part. We’re not playing intricate, shredding things where we need more. There’s not much of a loss sonically. I think a cool thing, too, is when we’re writing for our new album, we’ll be writing as a four-piece.

4. Sticks and Stones “Four would be Sticks and Stones. I think it’s our biggest selling record and My Friend’s Over You is still an anthem today; I feel like that song is even larger than our band and it will live on forever even after the band is done.

So that one is a very important record to me, even though it’s not my all time favourite. It probably is number one to a lot of our fans though.”

After 16 years as a quintet, veteran pop-punkers New Found Glory are now a four-piece. Late last year, they dismissed original guitarist/part time lyricist Steve Klein over “personal differences” and indicated they planned on replacing his spot in the band. “We have not decided on who will fill Steve’s position however we will let you know our plans as soon as we figure that out,” they wrote in their official statement. After playing their first show since the shakeup on-board the Paramore-led Parahoy! Cruise, there’s a (no pun intended) newfound enthusiasm to go ahead as a true quartet. Vocalist Jordan Pundik and guitarist/backing vocalist Chad Gilbert fielded questions about the recent tumult in NFG and how they’ll pick up the pieces without Klein in the fold. They also shared plans for a new album later this year, along with tours of the United Kingdom and U.S.

“There are a lot of songs we haven’t played since we recorded them,” singer Jordan Pundik adds. “The later songs on Coming Home and Catalyst — listening to those records again, I find myself thinking, “Man, these sounded good!” I’m pumped.”

“I’m going to give number three to the self-titled record. That was our first major label record and I think we were at a place where we could’ve sold out. We knew they wanted us to be on the radio and so we could’ve totally sold out, but we didn’t. We knew that what got us to where we were was the energy and dynamic of the band with the crazy live shows and crowd interaction. I remember we recorded the album and they liked Hit or Miss, but I don’t think they thought the rest of the record was a big single type release. But we grew up in punk and hardcore so we were already way more successful than we thought we would ever be. That’s why we opened the record with Better Off Dead, which is like a super fast punk rock song, and I really think the record combined what we were trying to do at the time; we wanted the rhythm and chunkiness of New York hardcore mixed with an element of the West Coast punk rock that was going on at the time, and nothing really sounded like that back then. So I’m really proud of us for seeing a record contract and not being like, ‘Now we’ve got to do what they want.’ Instead we said, ‘You signed us for what we do and this is what we do.’ I think that said a lot, and it was a gold album so it sold really well. It’s crazy to think that we sold a gold album when we were teenagers.”

Between 2002 and 2004, the band experienced the height of their popularity with headline slots on the Warped Tour with Blink-182 and a supporting tour with Green Day. Third album and major label debut, Sticks and Stones was released on June 11, 2002 and peaked at number four on the Billboard 200 chart. The record spawned two popular singles; “My Friends Over You” and “Head on Collision”. Following the success of the album, the band headlined the 2002 Warped Tour and later saw the album certified gold by the RIAA.
