They even headlined two nights at Japan’s legendary Budokan. Angel appeared on the television shows American Bandstand, Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert, The Midnight Special, and in the film Foxes.

In 2019 Angel reunited to release a brand new album, Risen, released on October 4 via Cleopatra Records. The album charted on multiple Billboard charts coming in at #14 on Hard Rock Albums, #34 on Independent Albums, #36 on Rock Album Sales, #82 on Top Current Albums (Sales) and #98 on Top Album Sales, respectively.

New Found Glory 2020 tour

Pop Punk is still not dead, and New Found Glory are making sure you know it with the announcement of their Co-Headlining tour with Simple Plan this Summer. The Pop Punk’s Still Not Dead Tour will kick off in St. Petersburg, FL on May 29 and travel to cities throughout the US with support from special guests Knuckle Puck. Pre-Sale tickets and VIP packages are available now. All additional tickets go on sale Friday, February 14 at 12PM Local Time.

New Found Glory just announced their tenth studio album Forever + Ever x Infinity, due out May 29 via Hopeless Records. The band has put together a quintessential NFG record, supremely catchy with sing-along anthems, trademark breakdowns, and sweetly poignant lyrics. “This is the record our fans have been waiting for us to make,” guitarist Chad Gilbert shares, “The old now feels new and fresh. It was a blast finding ourselves again.”

The first track from the upcoming album, “Greatest Of All Time,” has been garnering praise from fans and press alike. This song dives beyond the surface and into the depths of love, rolling through ups and downs, and riding through the fear to keep going through failure. Lines like “I think we are what we’ve been waiting for” tug at the heartstrings of anyone that has struggled, worked, and made it out the other side.
