New Found Glory to release Hits
Angst fueled by hooky guitar riffs and old-school hardcore breakdowns. Defiant yet upbeat. One of the first bands to fuse emo and punk-pop, add a tinge of hardcore, and bring it to the mainstream, New Found Glory has sold nearly 3-million albums while delivering the quintessential rock sound of the 2000s--melodic, fun, personable. Countless gold- and platinum-selling bands have credited New Found Glory for being the inspiration that sparked their own formation. Now, for the first time, all of the band’s best-loved singles and album cuts have been brought together for Hits (Drive-Thru/Suretone/MCA/Geffen/UMe), released March 4, 2008.

Hits also includes a couple of rare gems--“Constant Static,” previously available only as a Japanese album bonus cut, and “Situations” (streamed on the Warped Tour Website for only one month and never before commercially available). All of the tracks were personally selected by the bandmembers.
Founded as A New Found Glory (the “A” was later dropped), the group formed in Coral Springs, Florida, in 1997. After an indie EP and debut album, Nothing Gold Can Stay, singer Jordan Pundik, lead guitarist Chad Gilbert (formerly of hardcore band Shai Hulud), guitarist Steve Klein, bassist Ian Grushka and drummer Cyrus Bolooki made their major label debut with 2000’s self-titled album. Including the Top 20 Modern Rock hit “Hit Or Miss” as well as “Dressed To Kill,” the album was boosted by a tour with blink-182, sold-out headlining tours, and a spot on the Warped Tour, and eventually was certified gold.
Summer 2002 brought Sticks And Stones and a major hit with “My Friends Over You” (#5 Modern Rock). The album, which also included the Top 30 Modern Rocker “Head On Collision” and “Understatement,” charted #4 Pop, went gold, and elevated New Found Glory to headlining status at that year’s Warped Tour.
In 2004, Catalyst became the band’s highest charter, at #3 Pop. With the Top 15 Modern Rock hit “All Downhill From Here” plus favorites “I Don’t Wanna Know” and “Failure’s Not Flattering,” Catalyst earned New Found Gloryhttp://newfoundglory.com/ its third straight gold album, each produced by Neal Avron (Everclear, Good Charlotte, Fall Out Boy, Yellowcard). 2006’s Top 20 Coming Home, produced by Thom Panunzio (Tom Petty, Ozzy Osbourne, Joan Jett, Alice Cooper), marked a maturation inspired by family life even as songs such as “It’s Not Your Fault” and “Hold My Hand” remained resolutely accessible and infectious.
New Found Glory’s most recent album, the movie covers project From The Screen To Your Stereo Part II, was released in September 2007, and a new album is expected in summer 2008.
