New Found Glory’s “Not Without a Fight” Turns 10 Years Old
It’s been 10 years since the iconic pop punk band New Found Glory released Not Without a Fight. Feel old yet? Released on March 10th, 2009, Not Without A Fight reached 12th on the US Billboards 200, produced by Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus. This was the bands 6th studio album, released through the independent label Epitaph Records. Compared to New Found Glory’s previous albums, Not Without A Fight was by far the most heavy, full of energy, loudest albums they have come out with to date. Their first single on the album was “Listen to Your Friends”. Unfortunately, the album leaked on the internet just over one month before its release.
It’s been ten years since the release of “NWAF”, and New Found Glory hasn’t failed to bring us plenty more tracks. Since the 2009 release, NFG has released five more studio albums, including a New Found Glory 10th anniversary remastered edition of their 2000 release self-titled album. As of recently (March 20th, 2019), the band also had released two new single tracks titled “This is Me” and The Power of Love”. Despite the fact that the boys are pushing the age of 40 years old, they have yet to let their age get to them, and are continuing to deliver the classic pop-punk sound we all grew up on. It doesn’t look like these guys will be slowing down any time soon.
New Found Glory has without a doubt influenced so many up and coming bands we all listen to today. An easy example of that being the popular band The Story So Far, named after New Found Glory’s track off their album “Sticks and Stones”. Also, the wildly popular band All Time Low got their band name from the line in New Found Glory’s song “Head On Collision” off the same record “Sticks and Stones” released in 2002.
