I love all the asshole BS that goes on. when you find someone to work with that is also a fan and friend it makes the journey that much more enjoyable. A band is usually only as big as they are good. That part isn't up to the industry. We're not that big now for a reason, we're not as good as we're going to be. Although, I'd like to stop hearing so many people say they know 'how the music industry is these days' but that's not something the industry can change.
Upon our return from Warped Tour Australia, Steve made us aware of possible allegations that might be made against him. At that point, not knowing all the details, we made the decision to part ways in order for him to deal with these personal issues. Us 4 members of New Found Glory have given our entire lives to this band and will continue to do so. We’ve been able to play all over the world for the most amazing fans. We can't wait to get in the studio to make a new album and we can't wait to get back on the road! Just coming off the Parahoy cruise and a surprise show in our hometown we are more inspired than ever! Thank you so much...
It is a difficult challenge to defend oneself in the media when there is a pending criminal case. This is because people are quick to assume that if a person is charged with a crime, they are also guilty as charged. And it is especially difficult because criminal defense attorneys insist that their clients not talk about the case to ensure that their constitutional rights are protected. Furthermore, attorneys are limited by law as to what can and cannot be said about a case to the public.

Joe Chang of Gold Light took some time to answer our random interview. His answers can be found here.
Also it seems like early on a lot of those traveling band guys approached touring as like grinding it out, it had to be done to get their music out there, and there's something fascinating to me about that. Like being a rock musician was like punching a clock, and it was approached with this sense of a workingman's ethic, not celebrity or whatever, I like the honor in that. I mean, it still happens, it just seems like it was different back then.
