Chad Gilbert / What's Eating Gilbert

New Found Glory guitarist Chad Gilbert will release a new 7″ under his What’s Eating Gilbert project on June 19th via Paper + Plastick Records. The two-song 7″, entitled ‘The Nashville Session’, is the fourth release from What’s Eating Gilbert.

‘The Nashville Session’, which will be released in digital and vinyl formats, was produced by Chad Gilbert and Jon Howard at The Anchor Room in Nashville, Tennessee. It follows up three What’s Eating Gilbert releases, the ‘Thinking ‘Bout Her’, ‘Dear God’ and ‘What I’d Do’ EPs on Epitaph Records. The Nashville Session is the first What’s Eating Gilbert release since late 2010.

‘The Nashville Session’ features the characteristic ’50s-style pop sounds of the What’s Eating Gilbert discography and infusing a pop-punk tilt from Gilbert’s career with New Found Glory. The more uptempo ‘The One’ complements the swingy vibe of ‘Lonely Road’. The latter of the two songs is an introspective look into Gilbert’s thoughts about tour life, following his pattern of introducing personal experience into What’s Eating Gilbert songs.

Pop-Punk Isn’t A Faded Fad For Bands Like New Found Glory

New Found Glory

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.”
