Biography

Coral Springs, Florida, United States (1997 – present)

New Found Glory (often abbreviated to NFG) are an American band based in South Florida (Coral Springs). The band consists of Jordan Pundik (vocals), Chad Gilbert (guitar), Ian Grushka (bass) and Cyrus Bolooki (drums).
Also known as International Superheroes Of Hardcore, to date the band have released eight and a half studio albums, their latest, Resurrection, was released on October 7th, 2014.

The band formed under the name A New Found Glory in mid-1997 in Coral Springs, Florida, United States and currently based in California. New Found Glory formed in the middle of 1997, with Jordan Pundik on vocals, Chad Gilbert (formerly of band Shai Hulud) and Steve Klein on guitars, Ian Grushka on bass and Joe Moreno on drums (he was replaced by Cyrus Bolooki after their debut release). Chad Gilbert told MTV News “For us, and even hardcore music was something we did because we didn’t fit in in high school. We had nowhere to go, so we went to shows.”

The band recorded their first EP called It’s All About The Girls under Fiddler Records in June 1997. The band’s enthuasistic and somewhat homo erotic live performances soon resulted in them selling out the entire pressing of this EP. Over time, the strength of the live show helped build a strong following. Their first album Nothing Gold Can Stay was released by Eulogy Recordings. Stefanie Reines of Drive-Thru Records heard the album from the band Midtown and later re-released the album in 1999.

    Also, Resurrection is really good. But I think Radiosurgery still beats it.

    Falling in love is like a trainwreck. If you make it out alive, you still haven't made it. So tell me the truth. You don't know what you do. So tell me the truth. You don't know what you do to me, do you?

    I still think that 'Coming Home' is their best album, even though others are great too.

    I like the new album. It has some solid tracks. People are being overly critical because now it is apparently deleterious to a bands reputation to attempt to perpetuate their sound because it "plays it safe" or something. Connect the Dots and this new album don't exactly miss the mark on the traditional NFG sound, but some people just want evolution so anything else is bad. Give it a rest; I applaud NFG for sticking to what they want to do in the same way I applaud FOB for branching out away from their original style, and I don't even like FOB's new stuff. At the end of the day everyone is a critic, and people want to, in a sense, have the best of both worlds. The issue is that isn't possible. You can't stick to what you know and change the sound at the same time. Everyone hate Coming Home at first, so why would they try it again? Thankfully the fan base has finally seen Coming Home as being the solid album it always was. Better late than never.

    The more I listen to the new album it just makes me sad. They didn't seem to want to work with Steve in any way. I mean this is a guy who has been in the band, and in their lives for a long time. I'm sure he did some shit, but damn, half of this album i feel like it is them just kick steve while he is down, and the rest of the band is following Chad's lead. The music is tight, but the lyrics suck, and it has to be my least favorite NFG release.

    I don't know what all these crazy nay-sayers are talking about with the new album! I think it's f***ing awesome! It's one I can listen to from front to back and not skip a single song.

    I'm on my third or forth listen through and I like it but don't love it. It has some good songs and catchy riffs here and there but it's definitely not their best.

    I just don't get why they didn't go in the direction of the s/t ep and Not Without a Fight? The last two albums did nothing for me... I still love these dudes though and Jordan is probably going to be a pretty boy til he dies but still... not into it.
