New Found Glory is ‘Happy Being Miserable’
Pop punk band New Found Glory has released the music video for “Happy Being Miserable”. This is the first single from their upcoming ninth album, Makes Me Sick, which will be available on April 28 via Hopeless Records.
Directed by Max Moore in Nashville, TN, the creative concept for the video came from the band, who wanted to do their own version of the iconic puking scene from the movie Stand By Me.
On the “Happy Being Miserable” video, guitarist Chad Gilbert explained, “NFG has always done a lot of pop culture movie references throughout our career, from cover songs to t-shirt spoofs. So with our album being called ‘Makes Me Sick,’ it seemed like the perfect opportunity to take that iconic scene and give it our own spin.”
He added, “Or maybe we just wanted to show that all bad situations can have a redemptive outcome if you let it. Are you just gonna let life puke all over you? Or are you gonna look beyond yourself, pull people together, and celebrate being alive.”
The 10-track album was produced by Aaron Sprinkle (MxPx, Anberlin, Acceptance) and mixed by Tom Lord-Alge (U2, The Rolling Stones, Blink 182).
Makes Me Sick is now available for pre-order on iTunes, which includes an instant grat download of “Happy Being Miserable”. Full track listing below.
