New Found Glory in Seattle

Pop punk Legends New Found Glory in Seattle return to celebrate the release of their new acoustic album, “Make The Most Of It!”. Established just over 25 years ago, Coral Springs Fl based punk rockers NFG have an extensive catalog of high-energy albums. Nothing felt more needed than hearing your favorite sing-along unplugged. Same high energy, just minus the dodging of the stage diver, and sans dogpile/mic feed antics of every other NFG show.

Hosting the band in Seattle was The Neptune Theater. Being able to enjoy the band’s classics without having to stiff-arm the pit warriors was refreshing. The Neptune has brought so many great acts to the city so why not add another legend to the list? Opening the night is the talented Leanna Firestone. Her set fit in perfectly with the style and theme of the whole night.

And the lights dim

Singer Jordan Pundik sounded well-rehearsed and his voice sounded even more powerful than ever. Especially with the support of the entire crowd singing along from start to finish. This acoustic tour fits right into the wheelhouse of what New Found Glory does. The sense of community the band has developed throughout the years is easily recognized when 1,000+ punks are singing together which made me believe more bands in the genre should write acoustic records.

New Found Glory is very well known for their amazing covers and we were delighted to get to hear songs like Iris and even a rendition of Ill Be by Edwin McCain. They had an amazing 22-song set list with a pretty solid encore closing out the night. New Found Glory in Seattle was an amazing night with some of the legends in the punk rock scene bringing some great tunes to town. If you get the chance you really need to get out and see these guys live.
