Drive-Thru Records, Epitaph, Hopeless Records with thousands of shows from Chain Reaction to House of Blues and Warped Tours New Found Glory have made their mark in music as the celebrate 20 years together.
The band is excited to share the full track and accompanying music video for “20 Years From Now” featuring old home video footage from the Pop-Punk pioneers’ career as well as highlights from this monumental anniversary tour. For an in-depth oral history of the last 2 Decades, “The glory is as much ours as it is theirs. Pop-punk is alive, it is well, and it is in good hands.” The new video I can be seen below and the track is streaming on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify.
“20 Years From Now’ is a song we wrote and recorded during the “Makes Me Sick” album sessions. We loved the song and felt it stood out in a different way than the rest so instead of squeezing it on the album, we wanted to give it a life of it’s own. If you have seen us on this recent 20 Years Of Pop Punk tour then you got a first listen as it was our intro to the concert. We have learned so many lessons over the 20 years of this band but the underlining meaning of the song is about letting go of worry to feel true freedom. When you reflect on your life you realize how arguments, pride, and the worry of proving yourself never changed or fixed anything. Failure and missteps help refine your character and make you wiser. All you truly need to worry about is waking up each day and to try to be the best version of yourself. We feel very lucky that when we wake up we still get to be in this band. Thank you for that and we hope you enjoy the song,” said Chad Gilbert.
Makes Me Sick, the band’s latest full length, which was released earlier this year, experiments with new sounds, techniques and styles for the band. “The Sound of Two Voices” leads the charge in these areas and shows that a band that has been around for 2 decades can still create music as fresh as their first singles. The album landed at the #1 spot on the Record Label Independent Current Albums chart. Additionally, the album secured numerous charting positions including the #2 spot on the Current Alternative Albums, #5 for Top Current Rock Albums and the #39 spot on the Billboard Top 200.
