NEW FOUND GLORY WAXES '80s ON NEW ALBUM

They say that fashion and music complete cycles every 20 years, resurfacing in mainstream culture. New Found Glory gives their nod to the '80s with "Failure's Not Flattering", a track which appears on the band's latest album, Catalyst, released on May 18th. The band's guitarist, Steve Klein, explains to Loudside.com the lengths the band took to re-create an '80s style by recording the drums in a small room and using '70s vintage guitars, saying, "Even the harmonies -- they sound like Cars harmonies -- we really tried to get that '80s feel."


The song sounded so similar to a vintage '80s tune that the band's working title of "Failure's Not Flattering" was originally "Belinda Carlisle," a homage to the princess of '80s pop.

You can catch New Found Glory this summer during the Vans Warped Tour, which kicks off on June 25th in Houston, Texas.

The band is wrapping up a short run of warm-up dates through the end of the month. They include:
May 26th - Hartford, CT - Webster Theatre
May 27th - Pittston, PA - The Staircase
May 29th - Lancaster, PA - The Chameleon Club
