Artist: New Found Glory
Album: Sticks and Stones
In honor of New Found Glory announcing they are doing their new record with Neal Avron, today’s song of the day is, “Understatement” from their 2002 record. Neal has worked on NFG’s self titled record, Sticks and Stones, and Catalyst. They have looked to do some of their more recent releases with Neal, but there have been scheduling conflicts. The new record is slated for a 2011 release around the summer on Epitaph Records. While I was previously into lots of punk, among other things as a teen, NFG was one of the first pop punk bands I got into. I have always appreciated their punk and hardcore influences and roots. The song “Understatement” is the first track off Sticks and Stones and is a great album opener.
Also, I would like to dedicate this song to my friend, Joe Schoffstall. We have rocked out quite a bit to NFG in the past and they were some very good times. This one is for you, man!
