Pop Punk outfit New Found Glory have shared new single and music video Get Me Home off of their upcoming acoustic album Make The Most Of It, which arrives January 20th, 2023 via Revelation Records. The track reflects on the fact that “despite what plans you have for the future there are problems that might arise to change the course of those plans”.

Guitarist Chad Gilbert has had that experience in a number of ways:

Major surgery, battling cancer and pleading with the doctors and surgeons to do all in their power to get you home and back to the future you’ve always hoped for.‘Get Me Home’ is] heavy stuff but wrapped into one big sing along.

The upcoming album features seven new tracks written in the wake of Gilbert’s cancer diagnosis, including “Get Me Home” and lead single “Dream Born Again,” alongside seven live acoustic versions of fan favorites. Make The Most Of It is described as “a rumination on what it means to grieve, to live, to approach every day with appreciation and a sense of fulfillment”. 

Gilbert adds:

I didn’t want this to be the ‘cancer record’ originally. But when we went on tour and people started hearing the story and connecting to it, I gave up on trying to control the narrative. Not all bands are dealt these cards, but we were. Let’s take these songs and help the disease get awareness and raise money for a cause that’s working on education and research for my rare cancer.

A percentage of proceeds from Make The Most Of It will go to The Pheo Para Alliance, the longest standing internationally recognized leader in advocacy for, and awareness of this rare cancer type, pheochromocytoma. New Found Glory have also released a limited-edition charity shirt to benefit The Pheo Para Alliance, available now.

New Found Glory have released gold and platinum records, including 2000’s New Found Glory, 2002’s Sticks & Stones, and 2004’s Catalyst, made countless MTV appearances, and toured the world over.
