Bridge 9 to release New Found Glory EP
New England Hardcore record label Bridge 9 will be releasing a six-song EP from Florida’s Punk-Rockers New Found Glory. The EP, titled Tip of The Iceberg, will consist of three original songs and three cover songs. According to the official Bridge 9 press release, New Found Glory guitarist and former Shai Hulud frontman commented to say, “When we began New Found Glory, we were just a couple of kids from the hardcore scene playing in a punk band. Even today, there are still hardcore kids that support NFG so it’s awesome to put something out for them and it’s also a chance for us to show recent NFG fans the scene where the band started. Now that we’ve got some time in between contracts, it’s nice to take some time and do whatever we want and write and record music with no pressure.”
Bridge Nine Records’ owner Chris Wrenn stated, “New Found Glory has always been a band that hardcore kids have liked, and they are not one of those bands that came from nowhere and threw out a few hardcore nods for credibility’s sake. The first time I met the band was when I was with Champion in Australia a few years ago. The guys came out to the show, hung out, and they were cool guys. It’s common to have bands with hardcore kids playing pop punk songs and some are pretty big bands, but there were guys doing the same thing a decade before in basements and garages and they got the idea from New Found Glory.”
Tip of the Iceberg was recorded by Paul Miner of Death By Stereo and will be released in April.
