Steve Klein from New Found Glory spoke with The Aquarian Weekly in a Q&A about the veteran band’s latest album ‘Radiosurgery’, kicking off a tour earlier this month, how fans are responding to the new material, how they selected the opening acts, advice for up and coming bands, and more.
“The bands we took on this tour are bands we think are holding the torch of pop-punk and bands that have worked really hard to keep it alive,” Klein said about the Pop Punk’s Not Dead Tour with Set Your Goals, The Wonder Years, Man Overboard and This Time Next Year. “Pop-punk isn’t a fad for bands like us and the bands we’re touring with. Nowadays people are saying pop-punk’s resurging, but for New Found Glory, the pop-punk fans never went anywhere. It’s just that some bands have come and gone, and the mainstream radio has stopped playing it, but the fans are still listening to this style of music.”
