Chad Everett Gilbert is an American musician and record producer. He is a founding member of the rock band New Found Glory, for whom he plays lead guitar, composes music and provides backing vocals. He was also the lead vocalist for New Found Glory's now-defunct side-project, International Superheroes of Hardcore. Additionally, Gilbert was the vocalist for the hardcore punk band Shai Hulud between 1995 and 1998, and he rejoined the band in 2012.
Gilbert recently began producing records, notably H2O's Nothing to Prove and A Day to Remember's three most recent albums, Homesick, What Separates Me from You and Common Courtesy. In 2010, Gilbert announced he would release solo material online, free of charge, and has released several demos and 7" vinyl records under the name What's Eating Gilbert.
Gilbert is divorced from Sherri DuPree from the rock band Eisley. Since 2008, he has been in a relationship with Paramore's lead vocalist and keyboardist Hayley Williams. On December 31, 2014, Williams and Gilbert announced that they had become engaged after Gilbert proposed on Christmas Day. They were married on February 20, 2016.
On January 26, 2010, Gilbert reported that "suspicious cells" had been found in his thyroid and he would be getting half of his thyroid surgically removed. Four days later, Gilbert posted on his Twitter that the surgery had been a success and no cancer had been found.
