New Found Glory Sign To Hopeless Records; New Album Due This Fall

Among Hopeless Records’ streak of new signings comes a group we’ve heard plenty of over for over 15 years: New Found Glory. News of the band’s signing initially broke out through an Instagram post made by guitarist/vocalist Chad Gilbert, which was subsequently followed by a post made by their new label.
