New Found Glory has slated next Friday (January 20th) as the release date for the acoustic album, “Make The Most Of It.”
The set features seven tracks written after guitarist Chad Gilbert’s was diagnosed with cancer diagnosis.
In addition, there are another seven live acoustic versions of fan favorites.
“I feel proud that we can release an album with joy and honesty in a way that will hopefully make people less fearful of life,” Gilbert explained. “A lot of times we punish ourselves for things that might never happen. I’m going through something that did happen but doing it with hope and joy and a greater appreciation.”
A percentage of proceeds from “Make The Most Of It” will go to The Pheo Para Alliance, the internationally recognized leader in bringing attention to pheochromocytoma, a rare, usually noncancerous (benign) tumor on an adrenal gland that may cause high blood pressure, headaches, sweating and symptoms of a panic attack. If a pheochromocytoma isn’t treated, severe or life-threatening damage to other body systems can result.
