MARCH 16, 2020 – Coral Springs, FL – New Found Glory are kicking off the week with a brand new song and look behind the scenes of the writing of their forthcoming album with the premiere of “Nothing To Say.” Fans can check out the new song and music video exclusively with Billboard and will be treated to drawings by vocalist (and part-time tattoo artist) Jordan Pundik as well as photos by Acacia Evans that were taken during rehearsals, recent tours and in studio sessions for the band’s tenth studio album Forever + Ever x Infinity, due out May 29th via Hopeless Records.
Guitarist Chad Gilbert shared that “‘Nothing To Say’ is a song for friend circles that struggle with a member of that circle who seems to never have anything good to say,” in an exclusive chat with Billboard. “We hope this song can be a fun release for people dealing with the same types of friendships. We definitely don’t think you should drop people in these sort of situations but take a healthy boundary so you aren’t being pulled into it. Try to help that person grow above it.”
Combining punk, hardcore, and post-hardcore with emotional lyrics and melody is nothing new for the band that epitomizes heartfelt optimism with DIY work-ethic and spirit. But never has this been more evident than this 15-song barn burner of a record. Set at a blistering pace, songs like “Shook By Your Shaved Head” and “Nothing To Say” rip the listener out of their monotonous day-to-day and drain away all the pressure and self-doubt that manifests inside. When singer, Jordan Pundik, sings, “You’ve gotta take your life back. You’ve got so much more to give. That’s what I say to myself when I feel like giving into the shame I feel. Won’t let it keep me standing still,” you can’t help jumping up, throwing a fist in the air, and singing the words out at the top of your lungs. This is what New Found Glory has always been about – inspiring people to not be afraid of the odds, to lift each other up, and get up again.
