Über New Found Glory
New Found Glory's high-test punk-pop is typified by massive guitars and Green Day-inspired vocals that thankfully come minus the fake British accents. These Drive-Thru Records stable-dwellers formed in Coral Springs, Fla., in 1997 and promptly released an EP, It's All About the Girls, that same year. Their 2000 EP, From the Screen to Your Stereo, a collection of creative and uncharacteristic covers of songs from movies, was well received and gave the band something of a distinctive identity among the legions of like-minded punk-pop scrubs operating at the time. By 2004, their fourth proper record, Catalyst, was holding down the No. 3 spot on the Billboard Album charts. The band has steadily toured and released studio and live albums since. An expanded, full-album sequel to From the Screen, suitably titled Part II, appeared in 2007.
