New Found Glory - October 29th, 2011 in Sayreville, NJThe typical fall weather New Jersey is accustomed to in October took a turn this past Saturday with an unexpected snowfall across the Garden State. The brutal weather and harsh slushy roads that no Jersey kid is used to in October didn’t stop fans of New Found Glory, Set Your Goals, The Wonder Years, Man Overboard and This Time Next Year from attending the Pop Punk’s Not Dead Tour at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey.
The tour started in the beginning of October to promote New Found Glory’s seventh studio album, Radiosurgery, which was released on October 4th. Halfway into New Found Glory’s set, guitarist Chad Gilbert went on to say that the band isn’t telling their fans to only listen to pop punk, but the exact opposite. Just because the whole tour is about the specific genre, one should be open minded to all sorts of music.
What’s interesting and awesome about pop punk music is that there’s a whole scene within itself. Pop punk music doesn’t need air play or television exposure to be successful or to exist. Pop punk fans are die-hard fans of the music and the many positive messages the genre portrays, like living a straight edge lifestyle, community, friendship, and just simply having a good time.
