For the past fifteen years, New Found Glory have transcended trends and gimmicks by writing songs from the heart that listeners of all ages can relate to. From their debut Nothing Gold Can Stay in 1999 all the way to 2011's Radiosurgery, with eight releases in between, the band has worn an array of influences on their sleeve. Now, New Found Glory is excited to pay homage to one of their biggest influences (and biggest names in punk rock), The Ramones, for a special Record Store Day release.
On April 20th (for 2013's Record Store Day), New Found Glory will release an extremely limited LP through Bridge Nine/Violently Happy Records that features six Ramones Covers on 12" vinyl with an etched B-side. The album will also be available digitally through the label on April 23rd. New Found Glory covers Ramones' hits like "I Wanna Be Sedated", "Rock N Roll High School", and "Rockaway Beach" as well as other tracks like "Do You Remember Rock N Roll Radio", "Judy Is A Punk" and "The KKK Took My Baby Away".

About Record Store Day:
The original idea for Record Store Day was conceived by Chris Brown and was founded in 2007 by Eric Levin, Michael Kurtz, Carrie Colliton, Amy Dorfman, Don Van Cleave and Brian Poehner as a celebration of the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the USA and hundreds of similar stores internationally.
This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet and greets with artists, parades, dj's spinning records and on and on. Metallica officially kicked off Record Store Day at Rasputin Music in San Francisco on April 19, 2008 and Record Store Day is now celebrated the third Saturday every April.
