Interview:
New Found Glory celebrates 10 years of breakthrough album

New Found Glory frontman Jordan Pundik says "it feels like time flew by" in the 10 years since the Florida punk group released its "Sticks and Stones" album -- which it's celebrating this year by playing the set in its entirety.

"Y'know, the 10 years has gone by so fast. I feel like we're a new band whenever we have a new record out," says Pundik, 33. "But over the years of touring and everything, I meet a lot of fans and talk to a lot of people, and they always go to 'Sticks and Stones,' how it was a big record for them. A lot of bands have said it was a big influence for them. And any time we lay a song from that record, it goes off great live.

"So we decided to do something special for the 10-year (anniversary). It's the first time we've played some of these songs in a long time, and it's going over really well."

The "Sticks and Stones" commemoration is also giving New Found Glory a bit of a breather between its last album, 2011's "Radiosurgery," and whatever the band decides to do next. There's talk about a live album and DVD, while Pundik -- who's in the mist of opening a tattoo shop in Nashville, where he now resides -- predicts that the group may not hear new music until 2014, though he's confident that group is far from over.

"We've been touring for awhile, and I think we need to go away for a little bit -- not go away completely, but maybe just do some one-off (shows) here and there," he explains. "We've done this before. Our last long break was probably 2006 or 2007. Sometimes a record runs its course and we take a break, but, no, I'm not worried about us breaking up."

New Found Glory, The Story So Far and Seahaven perform Sunday, Dec. 2, at the Magic Stick, 4120 Woodward Ave., Detroit. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $28. Call 313-833-9700 or visit www.majesticdetroit.com.
