Despite being trimmed down to four people, the American rock band New Found Glory rises from the ashes like a mighty phoenix with the aptly titled record Resurrection.
Speaking about how the album came to be, guitarist Chad Gilbert says, "the goal for the new record was to make it sound really authentic and natural and not filled in."
Brace your ears for sonic treats like "Selfless" which shows just how great and grand you can get with just four instruments. Talking about the song, vocalist Jordan Pundik says, "We’ve been through ups and downs. At the end of the day, it’s how you are as a person and how people view you as a person.” For those who love it hard and heavy, you can look forward to "Stubborn," a very powerful track that would get your head banging.
Filipinos will now have the chance to hear these new tracks live when New Found Glory performs in Manila this 2015. Their one-night only event will take place at the SM North EDSA Skydome on February 8.
The show promises relatable tracks that maintain the same infectious tunes that shot the band to stardom in the late 90's. According to Pundik, the songs are about "stuff we've dealt with in our lives."
As the band nears the two-decade mark on their musical career, they maintain the same grit, passion, and drive that fans have seen from them since the beginning. "Our band can get through anything and nothing would stop us from doing that and that’s because we genuinely love it," Gilbert says of the band's experiences.
Pudnik adds: "We appreciate each other and we appreciate our fans. Those are the two things that have kept us doing this, happily, for so long."
