About the band’s second single “Ready and Willing, Chad (lead guitarist) said,“The song is one of the most meaningful songs we’ve written as a band. It starts with having a dream and the chances of success being really slim but you’re willing to risk it all to do it. Then further down the line feeling uninspired and questioning everything you’ve given up and was it all worth it.” He continued, “then you go back and listen to old records and rediscover why you did it in the first place. And in the end challenging people to inspire others to not be afraid to risk it all to do what you love.”


Chad spoke about the idea behind the “Ready and Willing” music video. “The video is really about making fun of us. The guys are better looking and younger. It’s just a fun take if New Found Glory was a young pop band in a parallel universe! We also wanted to try and trick some people into thinking that was us.”


Resurrection is set to release on October 7th via Hopeless Records, just after the band hits the road for the 5th Annual Glamour Kills tour with support from We Are The In Crowd and Fireworks, along with rotating openers Candy Hearts, Red City Radio, and Better Off. Fans can purchase Resurrection pre-order bundles, which include items such as the CD, vinyl, poster, t-shirt, and pre-sale GA ticket and VIP sound check for the Glamour Kills tour, here: General tickets for this tour can be purchased at


New Found Glory is Jordan Pundik (lead vocals), Chad Gilbert (lead guitar), Ian Grushka (bass guitar) and Cyrus Bolooki (drums).
