New Found Glory’s Chad Gilbert reveals new tumor diagnosis

As some of you might recall, New Found Glory guitarist Chad Gilbert revealed a particularly scary health diagnosis late last year, specifically, a rare type of adrenal gland tumor called pheochromocytoma. It was a pretty harrowing journey; more on that here.

The band were back out on the road hard and heavy throughout the course of this summer for the Sticks & Stones 20th anniversary tour. Our own Chris Tracy was at the Denver show and grabbed the above photo of Gilbert in action! Anyway, as tour went on, Gilbert started experiencing back pain. Well, he can tell you the rest (per his Instagram):

Dear friends!
Was having really intense bad back pain on tour (which can happen from jumping around carrying a heavy guitar). I flew home early for an MRI. Unfortunately we found a new Pheochromocytoma tumor in the 12th vertebrae of my spine pinching on my nerve bad. I’ll be headed into surgery tomorrow to get almost all of it out then hit what’s left with some fancy radiation. Scary stuff but it’s all about the little wins. Each day we’ve been having fun in the hospital and feel lucky with so many things and God’s timing with all of this. If I didn’t go on tour and inflame my tumor, I wouldn’t have known early enough it was there! Then my band’s love and support got me home to get scanned. Knowing me, if pain is making me not play a show, it’s bad. We also discovered I have some very tiny nodules on my lungs but my amazing team feel very confident that it’s manageable and at an early stage compared to where I was last time. My vitals and heart are great this time. Moving forward with today’s amazing technology, I can be on a lifelong treatment that just keeps it all at bay. Like living with an illness but it’s not life-threatening. I no longer have to guess if it will return and can just relax. So I ask for all the prayers, hopes, fingers crossed, or whatever you do for people you care about in times like these. For my rock solid angel of a wife @lisacimorelli and our beautiful dream of a baby, Lily Gilbert. Hoping to be home recovering Friday or Saturday!
For everyone out there struggling with intense health issues and disease. I’m right there with you. Do your best to make the most of it and try not to waste too much time on fear. Process your emotions but no one’s time is ever certain, with or without good health. We are all the same. Try to love and impact where you’re at and what’s around you and look for the depth of the people around you. See how incredible it is that all these people have been on their own journeys and are now connected to you for some reason. From doctors to nurses to the person cleaning your hospital room, everyone’s story is impactful. Much love to everyone out there! Can’t wait to be back out. See you soon!

We’ll keep you posted if and when Chad keeps the world updated. Until then, probably keep him and his family in your thoughts, yeah? And in the meantime, if something wonky is going on with you, TALK TO THE DOCTOR! Don’t be a hero, yeah?

This Show Is Tonight: Franz Ferdinand bring the ‘Hits’ to Boston

<p>The best way to make a Monday feel like a Friday is a heavy dose of Franz Ferdinand. The Scottish band rolls into Boston tonight (August 15) to play House of Blues, and they’re bringing with them nearly 20 years of indie dance floor bangers, all packaged up nice and tight via March’s Hits To The Head compilation. So we’re destined to get all the jams on Lansdowne — “Michael,” “Take Me Out,” “Do You Want To”, and probably everything […]</p>

Death Cab for Cutie reach for the sky on ‘Foxglove Through The Clearcut’

<p>We’ll set the scene: It’s October 1, and we’re all at Leader Bank Pavilion in the Seaport, enjoying a crisp autumn evening in New England as Death Cab For Cutie roll through their familiar hits and life-shaping catalog. But suddenly, Ben Gibbard and the boys break out a new song, a shimmering stargazer tune that glistens off Boston Harbor and all her shiny new glass buildings, and maybe, just maybe, we’re content in the present and no longer looking back.

Editors shine a strobe across an ‘EBM’ dance floor with the fevered ‘Kiss’

<p>British post-punk revivalists Editors have a new album out in September called EBM, and there are two main takeaways from that title: One, it’s an acronym of Editors and Blanck Mass, as Ivor Novello-winning producer and composer Benjamin John Power is now a core member of the group; and two, it suggests the type of thematic sound from the band’s seventh studio album, taking influence from the Electronic Body Music that lit a synth strobe across the dance underground in […]</p>
