The new album from NEW FOUND GLORY will be released on October 7th via Hopeless Records.
I defied the odds
Dead end cul-de-sac gridded streets that felt like jail
A maze of palm trees, led to nowhere
Built my own boat so I could sail
They said, you won’t make it
You’re just wasting all your time
But I’ve got no patience
And hate to stand in lines
Ohh I’m ready and I’m willing to take you on
Ohh I’m ready and I’m willing to lose it all
I search the channels to find stations
I used to watch when I was young
Only to find a reality that’s fine
Settling for dumb
There’s no more heroes
No one showing us the way
So I sift through my old 45”s
To remind myself.
When my back goes out, I’ll know I did it all
And have stories to tell.
When my eyes go bad, I’ll know I’ve seen it all
They’ll be light when my vision fails
My legs will go bad
But I walked 5 continents
So I won’t need to stand
I hope this life I lived will wake you up
So you could do it again
Are you ready are you willing to take it on?
Are you ready are you willing to lose it all?
Hopeless Records signed the band back in May 2014. The label issued the following message back then:
We are thrilled to announce the signing of pop-punk icons New Found Glory. The band is currently writing and recording their eighth full-length studio album, which will be released later this year. This fall, New Found Glory are set to hit all three stops of Riot Fest in North America before heading to the UK for their Pop Punk’s Not Dead headlining tour in November. See below for a full list of upcoming tour dates.
Originally formed in 1997, New Found Glory is Jordan Pundik (lead vocals), Chad Gilbert (lead guitar, vocals), Ian Grushka (bass guitar) and Cyrus Bolooki (drums).
