New Found Glory recently revealed that Best Coast vocalist Bethany Cosentino will be making a guest appearance on their upcoming record.
A post on the band’s official site stated:
“Today our friend Bethany from the band Best Coast came into the studio and sang vocals on one of our new songs! We are totally pumped to have her guest on our record. We have been big fans of her band for a while now. We met Best Coast through the power of Twitter. The story goes, I wanted to get in to see their sold out show at the Troubador and didn’t have a ticket. I tweeted them half kidding about putting me on the guest list! Come to find out they were NFG fans and totally hooked me up. Since then we’ve been buds! It’s refreshing when you meet a band you love that inspires you and they are actually cool people too! If you haven’t heard their newer album “Crazy for You” yet you are truly missing out. It rules!”
New Found Glory’s new album, ‘Radiosurgery,’ is expected to drop this fall through Epitaph Records. Frontman Chad Gilbert has described the album as “the most upbeat fun record we’ve ever recorded. Catchy but not in a fake pop sounding way. I wanted to go back to more of the roots of punk and pop punk and put a whole new NFG spin on it. So imagine Green Day’s Dookie, Ramones, maybe even a little Rancid Let’s Go all thrown into a pot of NFG. The record goes from song to song never letting up the energy.”
