They’re back — and hopefully it’s not all downhill from here.
Pop punk heroes New Found Glory released “Selfless” today (Aug. 8), the first single from the Florida band’s upcoming album Resurrection.’
To go along with the new single, the band also shot a music video for “Selfless,” which also hit the Internet today.
Having left Epitaph and signed with Hopeless Records in May, the 13-track album will be band’s first full length with the label.
“The goal for the new record was to make it sound really authentic and natural and not filled in,” lead guitarist and vocalist Chad Gilbert said in a press release. “It was trying to make the biggest sounding record stripped down as four people.”
Several album and concert ticket pre-order packages are available via the band’s website including album posters, clear vinyl LPs, t-shirts, lithos and downloads. For a cool $100, a limited number of fans will meet the band for a selfie, watch an exclusive soundcheck performance and receive a GA ticket, Resurrection CD, Resurrection LP, Resurrection album download, exclusive tee, commemorative VIP laminate and signed album lithograph.
New Found Glory will set out on their fifth Glamour Kills tour with We Are The In Crowd, Candy Hearts, Red City Radio, Better Off and Fireworks. The 27-city tour kicks off Oct. 3 at House of Blues in San Diego. Tour tickets go on sale this Friday (Aug. 8).
NFG’s Chad Gilbert and Jordan Pundik recently took the stage with All Time Low during the first annual Alt Press Awards to perform a medley that included one of the the band’s biggest hits, “All Downhill From Here.”
The band is also set to perform at all three Riot Fest dates — Toronto, Chicago and Denver — this year.
