0058 - New Found Glory - Tip of The Iceberg 7"

Quick story if I may. When I was a young teen getting into heavy metal/punk, my initiation started with nu-metal and pop-punk. One band I really liked was New Found Glory. At the time, I didn't realise the esteem they were held in by hardcore fans. As time went on I noticed they had an alias called International Superheroes of Hardcore, but I wrote that off as a joke. As I got into Shai Hulud, I learnt that both bands shared members at one stage or another. Up until not so long ago, I only owned NFG stuff on CD, but as the final part of my Bridge Nine order, I spotted this and went for it.

I like how this cover matches their International Superheroes of Hardcore covers. It's not all about soppy pop-punk with this one!

The 7" featured two original NFG tracks on the a-side and a Gorilla Biscuits cover on the B side, though NFG called it the GB side for obvious reasons.


Side A -
1. Tip of The Iceberg
2. Dig My Own Grave

Side B -
3. No Reason Why (Gorilla Biscuits cover)
