New Found Glory to Play ‘Catalyst’ & ‘Sticks and Stones’ in Full May 18 at Exit/In

NewFoundGlory2017-620

Pop punk pioneers New Found Glory are celebrating their 20th anniversary with a lengthy spring run of shows where, each night, they’ll perform two of their classic albums, rotating a different combination for each city. Though at least some of the group call Music City home these days, and we spotted them around town frequently last year while working on their upcoming album, the band’s initial run of shows announced in December was suspiciously absent a Nashville outing. That wrong has just been righted, however, with the addition of a handful of southern dates, wrapping up the massive tour with a performance at our own Exit/In, where NFG will play 2004’s Catalyst and 2002’s Sticks and Stones, arguably their two most famous releases, in full.

After a five year Nashville absence, the group returned in 2015 to headline Mercy Lounge. Since then, they’ve played a special acoustic show at the Franklin Theatre and appeared at the Nashville stop of the Vans Warped Tour, both last year. While their upcoming tour is meant to celebrate the milestone of reaching two decades as a band, cementing a legacy which included helping propel pop punk back into the national spotlight in the early ’00s, New Found Glory also recently announced that their ninth album, Makes Me Sick, will arrive April 28 via Hopeless Records.

Tickets for the group’s Exit/In show are available now, and include a digital copy of their forthcoming album. Given the size of the space and the nostalgia factor of the set, don’t expect them to last long.
