Punk rock band, New Found Glory, has been making music for over 16 years. Now in 2014, the band is making some changes and is looking forward to a fall tour in the United States. The band has always been five members but now the group is down to four.
Back in 2013, the band dismissed original guitarist and lyricist Steve Klein because of personal differences. Originally, the band had planned on replacing Klein but after further thought the band decided not to.
"We have not decided on who will fill Steve’s position however we will let you know our plans as soon as we figure that out," the band said in an official statement, Billboard reported.
The band is currently playing on the Parahoy! Cruise with Paramore. The band even had fun covering Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" but following their time on the high seas, they're ready to focus on a new album and upcoming tour.
"When we go home we're going to go into full writing mode. There's a few ideas scattered. Me, Jordan and (drummer) Cyrus (Bolooki) all live in Southern California so we're going to be meeting up. We already announced the tour in the UK -- Pop Punk's Not Dead UK -- we're going to be announcing a fall tour pretty soon in the States," said Chad Gilbert.
The U.K. tour will be kicking off in November 2014, Birmingham Mail reported.
