Makes Me Sick is the ninth studio album by American rock band New Found Glory. It was released on April 28, 2017, through Hopeless Records.[4]

Background[edit]

In October 2016, Alternative Press reported that the group were working on a new album.[5]

Release[edit]

The band sent out cryptic messages teasing the album and on January 25, 2017, Makes Me Sick was announced for release in April.[6] The lead single, "Happy Being Miserable", was released on February 16.[7] The music video, filmed in January,[6] was directed by Max Moore and is a recreation of a famous scene from the film Stand by Me.[8] Between March and May, the group went on an anniversary tour to celebrate 20 years of being a band. On the tour, the group performed material from their 1999–2009 albums,[9] as well as "Happy Being Miserable". Gilbert said tour would be "making people aware" of their new album and that for their "future tours we will jam more" songs from the album.[10] On April 14, "Party on Apocalypse" was made available for streaming.[11] Makes Me Sick was released on April 28 through Hopeless Records.[6] In September, the band performed at Riot Fest.[12] The album was re-released as a deluxe edition, Makes Me Sick Again, on May 18, 2018.
