New Found Glory have announced the title of their new album, Radiosurgery. The band has been working on demos and recording since fall of last year. Expect the album to be out later this year. The band had the following to say about the name of the album.
There are certain things in life that are extremely hard to get over. No matter how hard or long you go trying to forget, it’s always there somewhere in your mind. Some things can be so heavy they torment and enter every thought making you feel semi-insane. If our thoughts were like tumors we could have them removed.
“Radiosurgery” – is a medical procedure that allows non-invasive treatment of benign and malignant tumors. It is also known as stereotactic radiotherapy, (SRT) when used to target lesions in the brain, and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) when used to target lesions in the body. In addition to cancer, it has also been shown to be beneficial for the treatment of some non-cancerous conditions, including functional disorders such as arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and trigeminal neuralgia.
Some have already used our record title as an analogy referring to the state of popular music or songs they hear on the radio. Saying it needs some fixing… Or “surgery”.
Music is healing. You can find a song from your favorite band that relates to a tough situation in your life and listening to it helps you. You could say that’s some sort of Radiosurgery.
You can apply or relate the title to whatever you want. Truth is, it will all make sense once you hear the album.
