New Found Glory has been taking their “20 Years of Pop Punk” Tour all around the world, recently teasing an unreleased song before their set every night. Today, the band share the track “20 Years From Now” and its accompanying music video featuring old home video footage from New Found Glory’s career as well as highlights from their anniversary tour.
On the track, Guitarist Chad Gilbert shares “’20 Years From Now’ is a song we wrote and recorded during the “Makes Me Sick” album sessions. We loved the song and felt it stood out in a different way than the rest so instead of squeezing it on the album, we wanted to give it a life of it’s own. If you have seen us on this recent 20 Years Of Pop Punk tour then you got a first listen as it was our intro to the concert. We have learned so many lessons over the 20 years of this band but the underlining meaning of the song is about letting go of worry to feel true freedom. When you reflect on your life you realize how arguments, pride, and the worry of proving yourself never changed or fixed anything. Failure and missteps help refine your character and make you wiser. All you truly need to worry about is waking up each day and to try to be the best version of yourself. We feel very lucky that when we wake up we still get to be in this band. Thank you for that and we hope you enjoy the song”.
