"Connect the Dots" is a song by American rock band New Found Glory, serving as a limited edition single from their first live album Kill It Live (2013). The single was released on September 10 via Violently Happy Records, a partnership between independent label Bridge Nine Records and the bands guitarist Chad Gilbert.[2][3]
