NFG – “We love Saves The Day”

Following various web sites citing a bust up between East Coast emo crew Saves The Day and pop-punkers New Found Glory, Jordan and the boys have issued a statement on their website, playing down the so-called rivalry.

It all stemmed from a video which showed NFG vocalist Jordan mimicking Saves The Day frontman Chris Conley, following a scene in the video for their new single, ‘At Your Funeral’.

NFG said: “Hey everyone, we have been friends with Saves The Day for years and for those who don’t know we have done many tours with them as well.

“We know some people have been trying to make the clip of Jordan imitating their video into a big deal. Sorry, there is no gossip to spread. There is no war.

“We have always been and are still friends and huge fans. We can understand the confusion some people might have been having, and for anyone that enjoys drama, please lighten up.

“If and when Saves the Day see the clip we’re sure we will be recieving a phone call from them on how amused they were.

“Sorry you were unaware of our fun, friendly relationship.

New Found Glory.”

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
