New Found Glory Signs With Epitaph

New Found Glory has signed on to Epitaph Records to release their next full-length album in 2009. You can read the press release below.

Epitaph Records is proud to announce the signing of pop-punk’s most notorious band, New Found Glory. The steadfast rockers are currently wrapping up the recording of their seventh studio album, which was produced by Mark Hoppus (The Matches, Motion City Soundtrack), mixed by Neal Avron (Linkin Park, Fall Out Boy) and due out in spring 2009. Watch the band’s video announcement here.

For the past decade, New Found Glory has entertained fans with fun, energetic music, releasing six classic pop-punk albums, including three gold records New Found Glory, Sticks and Stones and Catalyst. The group’s move to Epitaph marks the next chapter in the band’s renowned career.

“Picking a new label was a scary thing for New Found Glory,” explains Chad Gilbert. “The music industry has been changing so much and more and more bands are being treated and presented like some Wal-Mart pop act with guitars. We have real diehard fans and we wanted to find a home that would represent NFG the right way. A label that knew our music scene. Epitaph is the place to be! They were all longtime, true fans of new found glory and they understand us. We aren’t just some record to put out before the new Pussycat Dolls CD! A real music label. We were over the big business of the majors.”

“It’s my great pleasure to welcome NFG to the Epitaph family,” adds Epitaph’s owner and founder Brett Gurewitz. “Everybody here is over the moon about working with the greatest pop-punk band in history.”

Stay tuned for upcoming announcements about New Found Glory’s new album in the coming months.
