Few months ago, New Found Glory announced they parted ways with their label, and signed into Hopeless Records, working on new material. Today, the news about the infamous pop punk band are out, and not just one thing. First of all, we officially know the release date of their new album, entitled Resurrection (needless to say why they called it that way), which will be on October 7th, via, well, as mentioned earlier, Hopeless Records. This new album, the first studio material of the band since the 2011 release, Radiosurgery, which reached #4 of US independent charts, and #26 on the Billboard 200. You can pre-order your Resurrection copy right now, either on iTunes or with bundles, going from $14 to $68, including posters, shirts, CD and/or LP (Clear Vinyl w/ Black and White Heavy Splatter). This album features 13 songs (really, 13? Better not be superstitious).
The first single “Selfless” was leaked, then posted on New Found Glory’s youtube channel, with an official music video. Watch it now, but don’t forget to scroll down after, because news are not over.
In addition to these news, New Found Glory are headlining the 5th annual Glamour Kills Tour this fall, going on tour with We Are The In Crowd, Fireworks, and rotating openers Candy Hearts (which latest album was produced by Chad Gilbert), Red City Radio, and Better Off. All dates can be found on New Found Glory’s website, on which you can buy your tickets, which also come with some sweet bundles:
“Resurrection bundle”: GA ticket*, Resurrection CD + digital download on release day -> $40
“Premium Resurrection bundle”: GA ticket, Resurrection CD + digital download on release day, exclusive tee, signed album lithograph -> $70
“VIP Resurrection bundle”: Exclusive soundcheck performance, meet and greet, photo opportunity, GA ticket, Resurrection CD + LP + digital download, exclusive tee, commemorative VIP laminate, signed album lithograph -> $100
Last but not least, after this US tour, the band will fly to the UK and Europe for some dates. The “Pop Punk’s Not Dead UK Tour” is featuring NFG (of course…), The Story So Far, State Champs, Candy Hearts and Only Rivals.
The end of the year looks busy for the band, and they will be in Paris on November 30th (but I might be in the UK at that time to see Tonight Alive, The Summer Set, and my friends from Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!. Not sure yet)
