NEW FOUND GLORY DEBUTS AT #12 ON BILLBOARD TOP 200

Pop Punk’s Heavyweights Deliver a Knockout Blow With Not Without A Fight


New Found Glory have once again defended their title as reigning champs of pop-punk with their new album, Not Without A Fight, debuting at #12 on the Billboard’s album chart.

Even with the album’s unfortunate leak six weeks before release, Not Without A Fight has catapulted New Found Glory inside Billboard’s top twenty for the fourth time in their career.

Three years since their last studio record, New Found Glory sent the internet abuzz when news of their return flooded message boards, blogs and social networking sites and fans could not have been more excited! Once leaked, Not Without A Fight was praised immediately by fans on sites like Absolutepunk.net and Myspace, spawning massive threads and countless comments, ultimately causing the band’s Myspace page to crash on several occasions, and fans aren’t the only ones taking notice. New Found Glory are currently featured on MTV2’s “Rock The Deuce” and recently debuted their hilarious new video for the hot new single “Listen Your Friends” on MTV.com.

What critics are saying about New Found Glory’s Not Without A Fight:

“[T]he record is a reminder of why we fell in love with NFG in the first place” – Alternative Press

“With this album, there's no need to put up a fight, because New Found Glory takes the title by default” – Absolutepunk.net

“In the pop punk sphere, New Found Glory rules the throne” – Outburn

“[S]ongs such as "Listen to Your Friends" and "Right Where We Left Off" definitely provide welcome oomph -- and remind listeners why New Found Glory has become such a mainstay over the last 10 years” – Performing Songwriter

New Found Glory’s first act as reigning champs will be a headlining US tour with Set Your Goals, which kicks off in Tempe, AZ on March 25th.
