Welcome to the 5th Annual Glamour Kills Tour! Cyrus from New Found Glory here. The first few shows have been nothing short of amazing, although we’ve been extremely busy so far. We’ve been doing these cool VIP soundcheck parties and meet and greets where a group of our fans get to come in to watch us play a few songs and we’ve been taking requests on the spot…we’ve definitely played some random old songs at these soundchecks with no practice at all…it’s kept us on our toes for sure!
We’ve also been doing in-store signings and acoustic performances at cool local record stores, supporting the local record store scene while also promoting our new record, Resurrection, which by the way, comes out TOMORROW everywhere (if it’s not already out in your country). Go get it now from a local record store, iTunes, or anywhere you can buy CD’s, records, or music in general! We’ve been playing new songs off of this album live and the response has been great. We’re actually playing a cool mix of songs this tour, both old and new, and even throwing in a few songs here and there that we never seem to play live. So if it’s been a while since you’ve seen us in concert, now’s your time to get back out here and see some songs you’ve probably never seen us play before live.
Today is a day off for us in El Paso, Texas, and we head to Austin, TX tomorrow for another show, and Record Release Day! I’ll probably try and meet up with some of the guys in We Are The In Crowd tonight to catch the Monday Night Football game before we leave town. By the way, the other bands on this tour are awesome, and if you don’t know who they are, you should really check them out! We’ve toured with all of them in the past, We Are The In Crowd in the UK/Europe, Fireworks all over the world, and Candy Hearts in the US and also in the UK later on this year. They are all great bands and great people, and I’m excited to be spending the next few weeks on the road with them!
That’s about it! Off to a mall, movie, and everything else that we always seem to do on days off…until next time!
Hey it’s chad!
3 shows down. I can’t believe the reaction of the crowds this tour so far. Y’all have always been crazy but it seems different and it seems more! It feels even better. It’s nuts for us too because the new songs are getting great reactions already. That’s rare for us even on our bigger albums. Like when catalyst first came out the new songs went over okay until a bit later. Resurrection songs are going off and the album isn’t even out yet! The power of the interwebz I guess! First day off for us today in El Paso. Just got my eyes checked and need glasses. The cashiers were speaking Spanish and I got insecure thinking they were laughing at my big doofy self but then when I was about to leave they asked for a photo! Hahah.
I think I’m gonna see two movies today! Annabelle and Gone Girl! That’s the plan! Get our record tomorrow and come see us on the tour!
