New Found Glory's '20 Years of Pop-Punk Tour' to Stop in Jersey City
In celebration of their two decades of music-making, each night of the new tour features New Found Glory showcasing two full albums from their impressive catalog, including: Catalyst, Not Without A Fight, Self-Titled, Sticks and Stones, Resurrection and From The Screen To Your Stereo.
The 20 Years of Pop Punk Tour was originally planned as only spring tour, but with tickets being in such high demand, the band added gigs into the summer months and decided to hit the road again in the fall in order to reach more of their fans. "Your wish is our command," says Chad Gilbert, guitarist. "We are bringing our 20 Year Anniversary Tour to all the cities we missed the first time! More albums, more cities, more fun! You only turn 20 once - might as well tour like it! Thank you for being the best fans any band could dream to have. This is for you!"
Nearly sold out, the spring/summer tour - highlighted by the intense performances of the band's first six full-length albums in intimate venues - was praised by fans and press alike. IMPOSE Magazine raved: "20 years of infectious pop-punk, 20 years of a band who have never quit and tirelessly release excellent records to this day. 20 years of a devoted fan-base that has never left and keeps on growing with each new record. This tour honored just that, a 20-year time capsule, two albums from their past played per night."
Makes Me Sick, the recently released new album from New Found Glory, landed at the #1 spot on the Record Label Independent Current Albums. Additionally, the album secured the #2 spot on the Current Alternative Albums, #5 for Top Current Rock Albums, #5 for LP Vinyl Albums, #11 for Current Digital Albums, #12 for Top Current Albums, #12 for Top Albums by Strata, #14 for Top Internet, #18 for Current Physical Albums and #39 for Billboard Top 200 charts. Chorus.fm notes: "NFG continued to push their brand of pop-punk towards different genres and ideas, but Makes Me Sick is the record that finally puts it all together into one cohesive, consistent LP."
During their 20 nonstop years in the music industry, New Found Glory released nine studio albums, one live album, two EPs and three cover albums. New Found Glory is Jordan Pundik (lead vocals), Chad Gilbert (guitar), Ian Grushka (bass guitar) and Cyrus Bolooki (drums).
