New Found Glory Announces ‘December’s Here’ Christmas Album
Pop punk legends New Found Glory have today announced their new holiday album, December’s Here, out December 3rd via Hopeless Records. The band is hoping to help fans get into the holiday spirit with eleven original songs, including new single and music video “Somber Christmas,” which is out now.
“We decided to make a Christmas album because the members of NFG always get in the spirit for every holiday but mainly to add a little variety to the holiday for our fans,” shares guitarist Chad Gilbert. “A lot of holiday music is all the same and are just modern cover versions of old songs. We wanted to add some new music into the mix, give New Found Glory fans their own style holiday. We hope our fans make this a special record for their families. A New Found Glory record that they can revisit every year, and blast around the house when they start decorating all the way up to Christmas Day after opening gifts and eating with the family.”
On “Somber Christmas,” he adds: “’Somber Christmas’ is about having a better Christmas this year than last. I think there was so much anxiety and unknown for so many in 2020 that last Christmas was a tough one. This song is about trying to get back to the simple things that make the Christmas season so special.”
Earlier this year the band released their new deluxe album, Forever And Ever x Infinity…And Beyond!!!, out now on Hopeless Records. Forever And Ever x Infinity…And Beyond!!! features six new songs that the band wrote and recorded during the pandemic, including latest singles “Backseat” and “The Last Redeye.” The deluxe album has been pressed on a limited-edition double LP paired with a collectible 24-page zine that was designed by the band, complete with never-before-seen photos and notes from New Found Glory.
They also recently wrapped the Pop Punk’s Still Not Dead Tour, which featured support from Less Than Jake, Hot Mulligan, and LØLØ.
