new found glory Biography
The American rock band New Found Glory is based out of Coral Springs, Florida. The band was established in 1997 by Jordan Pundik (lead vocalist), Joe Moreno (drummer), Ian Grushka (bassist), Steve Klein (guitarist) and Chad Gilbert (guitarist). After just a few shows Cyrus Bolooki, the band's current drummer, replaced Moreno. Since that time the lineup has remained constant. New Found Glory is known for their blending of the fast tempos and energy from classic punk rock and pop melodies. The band is considered by many music critics to be one of pop punk music's key pioneers. The fivesome is also noted for having energetic live performances and over their career have developed a devout following.
In 1997, New Found Glory recorded an EP at home called It's All About the Girls and built a cult following from an extensive East Coast area touring schedule. In 1999 the band released Nothing Gold Can Stay, their debut album. Eulogy Recordings, an independent label, distributed the album, which sold more than 300,000 copies. In 2000, Hit or Miss, the debut single off the set, charted on Modern Rock Chart, bringing the band wider exposure. The band's next three albums all charted on Billboard's 200 chart, including 2000's New Found Glory, 2002's Sticks and Stones and 2004's Catalyst and also were certified gold by RIAA.
After taking a touring break, the band released Coming Home, their fifth and critically acclaimed album, in 2006. The set drew on classic rock influences and was quite different from the earlier work of the band. New Found Glory then signed with Bridge Nine Records, an independent label. In 2008, they released Tip of The Iceberg. The EP paid homage to the band's hardcore melodic influences. In 2009, they released Not Without a Fight, the band's sixth studio album, which rose to No. 1 on Billboard's Independent Albums chart. Mark Hoppus produced the set. The band then signed with Epitaph Records, their current label. In 2010, New Found Glory and Neal Avron, their long-term producer, reunited and recorded Radiosurgery. The new album is due out in October 2011.
