New Found Glory announce intimate August tour

new-found-glory-rtvNEW FOUND GLORY announce August UK tour, including a main stage appearance at Reading and Leeds festivals and at Pukkelpop in Belgium Following on from their recent two exclusive and sold out UK dates (June 2009), NEW FOUND GLORY are pleased to announce a further run of UK headline dates which will also include a main stage performance at this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals.  Having only just released their excellent new, Mark Hoppus produced (Motion City Soundtrack, The Matches) and Neil Avron mixed (Fall Out Boy) album Not Without A Fight earlier this year on new label Epitaph (making the US billboard chart top fifteen in the process), the band make it over for the 3rd time to the UK in under 10 months due to the live demand.  In anticipation of the release, NEW FOUND GLORY originally kicked off Fight on January 6th with an online video game and a weigh-in press conference that were followed by – in true NFG fashion – hysterically funny training videos launching each week beginning January 22nd that ultimately lead up to the main event: the music video for their first single ‘Listen To Your Friends’, which can be viewed here:  Even though all the guys are still in their twenties, NEW FOUND GLORY have been slugging it out for over a decade alongside bands like Green Day and Blink 182, becoming one of the most celebrated pop-punk bands in the world. Known for their trademark humor and fun loving attitude, the band’s latest effort will bring smiles to fans’ faces once again. The band’s ability to consistently produce pop-punk favorites, album after album, has made New Found Glory a household name worldwide and Not Without A Fight raises the bar.  Full list of August UK and Euro dates are:

Fri 21 Belgium, Pukkelpop Festival (main stage)
Sat 22 UK, London Garage
Sun 23 UK, Manchester Club Academy
Mon 24 UK, Newcastle Academy 2
