September 8th, 2017 – Singapore – New Found Glory has premiered their new music video for the island jam “The Sound of Two Voices”. On the track, Billboard shares that the “most un-New Found Glory-sounding song (from Makes Me Sick) was also its best…”The Sound of Two Voices” takes some steel drums and a ska-punk backbone, and rolls a fat one for anyone who thinks they’ve seen the last of New Found Glory’s fresh ideas.”
‘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 Albumschart. 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. On the track and video, Gilbert tells Billboard “When everyone started loving the track, we wanted to make a video. The ‘Under the Sea’ thing and the meaning behind the song -- we wanted to tie it all together. Those who have to struggle with addiction in their lives know the ‘you only live once’ mentality doesn’t really work because you can only do that for so often before you’re self-destructive.”
The album has seen incredible praise with fans and press alike with Newsday saying, “All these pop-punk anthems champion taking chances and evolving.” Additionally, Alternative Press praised that "Makes Me Sick combines the fun factor of albums like Sticks And Stones and Radiosurgery with some of the musical poise and maturity of Coming Home—and, in the process, creates enough slight sonic diversions to give longtime fans something new to enjoy” and Chorus.fm celebrated that “NFG continued to push their brand of pop-punk towards different genres and ideas, but Makes Me Sick is the record that finally puts it all together into one cohesive, consistent LP.”
Fans can purchase the album on iTunes, and stream it on Spotify. The album, produced by Aaron Sprinkle (MxPx, Anberlin, Acceptance) and mixed by Tom Lord-Alge (U2, The Rolling Stones, Blink 182), takes risks, introduces new sounds and proves that after 20 years, New Found Glory is better than ever.
