New Found Glory, Florida’s sensational pop punk and melodic hardcore artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Newport Music Hall!
New Found Glory (formerly A New Found Glory) was formed in Coral Springs (Florida) in 1997 by Jordan Pundik (vocals), Ian Grushka (bass), Stephen Klein (guitar), Joe "Taco Joe" Marino (drums), and Chad Gilbert (lead guitar). They started out by recording their debut extended play (It's All About the Girls) and it wasn’t long before it entire pressing sold out. Their musical style can be best described as a blend of pop punk (a fusion genre that typically combines fast punk rock tempos, power chord changes and loud, distorted electric guitars with pop influenced melodies and lyrical themes) and melodic hardcore (a subgenre of hardcore punk with a strong emphasis on melody in its guitar work, fast rhythms, sometimes distorted guitar riffs, and vocal styles tending towards shouting and screaming). They’ve had a stellar career with 8 studio albums (3 of which have been certified Gold in the US), 2 EPs, 1 live album, 1 compilation album, 2 video albums, 18 singles, 3 tribute albums, 2 split albums, and 21 music videos. They’re also recorded cover versions of tracks by many renowned bands and artists and they’re widely regarded as the pioneers of pop punk.
Don’t miss your chance to see these artists add a unique touch to pop punk and melodic hardcore!
