New Found Glory spoke with Billboard about remaining a four-piece and their plans to release a new album before a fall tour later this year.
"There was never any thought, nor will there be any thought or consideration to ever have a fifth member. It's always going to be the four of us. As far as live, we're figuring it out, but we like it better than having an extra person. It's definitely easier to worry about us four than trying to find someone."

Julia Brown are currently in the process of recording their follow-up to last year's fantastic mini-LP To Be Close to You. No word on a release date or title yet, but the album is "maybe halfway finished."

Read a statement from the group below.

T-Pain, the much maligned auto-tune singer who had so many massive hits in the mid 00s, has a new profile in the New Yorker that takes a look at how he felt when everyone started to treat him as a joke. The nastiest bit is that Kanye West, who had called T-Pain in to consult on 808s and Heartbreak, wrote a song during those sessions essentially calling every idea T-Pain had garbage. It's an interesting, short piece, and one that I highly recommend.
But what has made T-Pain most resentful since his fall from the top was seeing certain artists use Auto-Tune and not get criticized; rather, they were celebrated as innovators in a way that T-Pain never was. Chief among these were Kanye West,...
