NEW FOUND GLORY
Early 2000s pop punk continues to have a lot of endurance, and if you've got a place in your heart for that kinda thing, you've also probably got a place in your heart for New Found Glory's 2002 album Sticks and Stones, home to their mainstream breakthrough singles "My Friends Over You" and "Head On Collision," as well as a slew of fan-fave deeper cuts. That album turns 20 this year, and NFG have just announced a tour that will celebrate the album's anniversary, with support from easycore vets Four Year Strong, and melodic hardcore supergroup Be Well.
