New Found Glory Boot Guitarist
2013-12-12 by andcas | 30 Comments

New Found Glory have broke the news, via Facebook, about the tough decision to part ways with rhythm guitarist Steve Klein. This comes as a huge shock to fans as he was a founding member, key songwriter/lyricist, and has been a part of the band for nearly 17 years. The announcement is vague in nature, but heavily implies their relationship is one that became strained beyond repair over a long period.

The official statement detailing where they go from here can be read in full below:

To All Our Fans,

It is with heavy hearts that we must let you know that Steve Klein is no longer a part of New Found Glory. We’ve had our differences with Steve over the years that have led us to this decision. We love Steve however personal differences have guided this decision and we no longer feel we can work with him. Rest assured that New Found Glory will still go on! After the Parahoy Cruise we are planning to write a new record and start this new chapter for our band. We have not decided on who will fill Steve’s position however we will let you know our plans as soon as we figure that out. We love you, our fans, so much and appreciate your dedication and loyalty to our band. We hope you stick by us during this difficult time.

We love you,

Chad, Jordan, Cyrus, and Ian

You gotta hang up your axe one day, and most bands are lucky to be relevant for 17 months, let alone 17 years. Many members split due to family reasons in less than 7 years of being in a band, but 17? Damn, props to him.
