New Found Glory (formerly A New Found Glory) is an American rock band from Coral Springs, Florida, formed in 1997. The band currently consists of Jordan Pundik (lead vocals), Ian Grushka (bass guitar), Chad Gilbert (lead guitar, backing vocals), and Cyrus Bolooki (drums). Longtime rhythm guitarist and lyricist Steve Klein departed from the band in late 2013, following "personal differences." During their lengthy recording career, the band have released nine studio albums, one live album, two EPs, and three cover albums.
After forming in 1997, New Found Glory released their debut studio album Nothing Gold Can Stay in 1999. The band released their self-titled major label debut in 2000, with the album's song "Hit or Miss" peaking at number 15 the Alternative Songs chart. In 2002, the band became mainstream with their album Sticks and Stones and the album's hit "My Friends Over You". New Found Glory's popularity continued with their 2004 album Catalyst. In 2006, they released the album Coming Home, which showed the band temporarily moving to an alternative rock style instead of their usual pop punk sound. The quintet returned to their energetic pop punk style with the release of Not Without a Fight in 2009. They have since released three more albums: Radiosurgery in 2011, Resurrection in 2014, and Makes Me Sick in 2017.
Emerging as part of the second wave of pop punk in the late 1990s, music critics consider them a key pioneer of the genre. Labelled the "godfathers of pop punk",AllMusic credits them for "practically serving alongside the work of Blink-182 as the blueprint to the entire genre for the early 2000s." They are also renowned for their energetic live performances.
