If you loved Makes Me Sick, New Found Glory’s record from last spring, then you may want to pick up a copy of the deluxe edition, Makes Me Sick Again, which comes with three unreleased tracks! You can probably grab a copy at any of the band’s upcoming concerts on their current tour, which started last night. They are traveling around the country starting on the east coast and Thrillcall is giving away tickets to select dates. See the full list of tour dates below.
Meet Sam, Brooke, and Jimmy–3 best friends. Their favorite things to do are play 007 Golden Eye on Nintendo 64, talk about their favorite messy projects in science class, and most of all raid abandoned construction sites for what they consider to be treasure (i.e. wood, nails, screws and the occasional tool). They used to play Mario Kart more than 007 but all agreed that it made them too stressed out (especially Jimmy). They all became close friends by finding a common bond. You see, what first felt like rejection ended up being the road that led them to each other. Being an outcast brought them together which quickly felt like true friendship. The kind of friendship that matters – not status, not perfect grades, and not caring what is considered cool or not. They loved how different each of them were and always encouraged each other’s individuality.
Feeling inspired by one of their clever heroes Kevin McAlister from the Christmas classic Home Alone, combined with some of their favorite scenes from the old box of horror VHS tapes they found; Sam, Brooke, and Jimmy had all they needed to devise the ultimate prank. Unfortunately for Troy and his clique, Sam, Brooke, and Jimmy never really learned what it meant to go too far. Movies are fantasy but this was real life.
Check out what happens when three outcasts take on the “cool kids” at the start of the summer in New Found Glory‘s recently released music video for “Call Me Anti-Social,” below. The track is from the band’s ninth studio album, Makes Me Sick, which was released last spring. In addition to the music video, New Found Glory has announced they are releasing a deluxe version of the album called Makes Me Sick Again, featuring three new tracks. The band has also officially kicked off The Sick Tour with support from Bayside, The Movielife, and former Yellowcard vocalist William Ryan Key. (source: Big Picture Media)
