Over their span of 20-non-stop-years in the music industry, New Found Glory have released eight studio albums, one live album, two EPs and three cover albums and are considered a key pioneer of the genre. The band has been playing together since the musicians were only in high school, breaking out of Florida to become one of the most influential pop punk bands of our time. The group has headlined Warped Tour, toured with Green Day and performed on the main stage of festivals like Reading and Leeds, their songs connecting positively and universally with fans around the world.
New Found Glory are currently preparing to release their 9th studio album, Makes Me Sick, on April 28 via Hopeless Records/Unified. The album was produced by Aaron Sprinkle (MxPx, Anberlin, Acceptance) and mixed by Tom Lord Alge (U2, The Rolling Stones, Blink 182).
