  • Pop Punk's Still Not Dead Tour

New Found Glory

  • LESS THAN JAKE, HOT MULLIGAN, LOLO

  Pop Punk’s Still Not Dead Tour has some news! The tour will now feature New Found Glory, Less Than Jake, Hot Mulligan, and Lolo! Due to unforeseen circumstances, Simple Plan are no longer part of the lineup. Other than Warped tour, New Found Glory and Less Than Jake have not done a proper tour together since the infamous Honda Civic Tour back in 2003 so we are very excited that they were able to step in! Hot Mulligan is an awesome new band that most of you have probably heard of and we’re happy to still have Lolo on the tour. Also, many cities, venues and promoters are requiring proof of a negative COVID-19 test result or full vaccination, as well as mask mandates in some areas, to attend shows. We encourage you to check your local venue’s websites for any mandates that they have put in place for everyone’s safety. Our tour party will be following all local protocols and abiding by these mandates to insure our safety as well. It’s been so long since we’ve all been able to be in a room together and we’ve worked really hard to bring you an amazing show so let’s do all we can to make it as safe and enjoyable for everyone! Get ready for an awesome night!! We are ready to shred!!! Refunds are available at point of purchase until September 3, 2o21.

Artist Bio

New Found Glory has always been about the same thing - honesty, community, and positivity. After 20+ years of being a band, ten studio albums, one live album, two EPs, and four cover albums, New Found Glory’s ethos has never wavered; they always strive to be the friend you always need and always understands you. With their tenth studio album, Forever + Ever x Infinity, the band has put together the quintessential NFG record, supremely catchy with sing-along anthems, trademark breakdowns, and sweetly poignant lyrics. “This is the record our fans have been waiting for us to make,” guitarist Chad Gilbert shares, “The old now feels new and fresh. It was a blast finding ourselves again.”

Combining punk, hardcore, and post-hardcore with emotional lyrics and melody is nothing new for the band that epitomizes heartfelt optimism with DIY work-ethic and spirit. But never has this been more evident than this 15-song barn burner of a record. Set at a blistering pace, songs like “Shook By Your Shaved Head” and “Nothing To Say” rip the listener out of their monotonous day-to-day and drain away all the pressure and self-doubt that manifests inside. When singer, Jordan Pundik, sings, “You’ve gotta take your life back. You’ve got so much more to give. That’s what I say to myself when I feel like giving into the shame I feel. Won’t let it keep me standing still,” you can’t help jumping up, throwing a fist in the air, and singing the words out at the top of your lungs. This is what New Found Glory has always been about - inspiring people to not be afraid of the odds, lift each other up, and get up again.

For what is the most revealing and unnerving than love? After all, Forever + Ever x Infinity represents how long you want your love to last. Songs like “Greatest Of All Time” and “Stay Awhile” dive beyond the surface and into the depths of love, rolling through ups and downs, and riding through the fear to keep going through failure. Lines like “I think we are what we’ve been waiting for,” and “We can love, we can fail, it never goes out of style,” tug at the heartstrings of anyone that has struggled, worked, and made it out the other side. But nothing can prepare you for the joy and exuberance of coming full circle with, “You like my sense of humor and I like the way you smile...Why don’t you stay awhile...or maybe for a lifetime.” It hits hard because you know this to be true, New Found Glory has always been about this; life will be difficult, but these difficulties make us into stronger, bolder people, and celebrating the triumphs in life make it all worth it.

With Forever + Ever x Infinity, the band created an album that is 100% New Found Glory, a brand and mantra 20+ years in the making, riffs and sing-a-longs to last a lifetime.

New Found Glory is Jordan Pundik (lead vocals), Chad Gilbert (guitar), Ian Grushka (bass guitar) and Cyrus Bolooki (drums).
