Hailing from Coral Springs, FL, punk-pop band New Found Glory was formed in 1997 by recent high school graduates Jordan Pundik (vocalist), Ian Grushka (bassist), Joe Moreno (drummer), and guitarists Chad Gilbert and Steve Klein. The band spent the late 90 s touring the East Coast and amassing a cult following.
After a few successful EP s and album, New Found Glory reached stardom with their self-titled 2000 album New Found Glory. The album went gold and that year NFG scored their first big tour opening for Blink 182 and an opening spot at Warped Tour.
With their next album Sticks and Stones (2002), New Found Glory scored a headlining spot at Warped Tour, cementing them as a force in the punk-pop genre. They achieved their third gold album with Catalyst, released in May 2004, which peaked at number 3 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.
With their fifth studio album, Coming Home, they began their first headlining tour in the U.S. and U.K. Since then, NFG has collaborated on their albums with producer Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 before returning to work with Neal Avron, their previous producer, on their most recent album, Radiosurgery, released in 2011.
