New Found Glory get help from fans on new video

 Yesterday, October 9th, pop punk legends New Found Glory released their Resurrection: Ascension album, a rerelease of last year's Resurrection through Hopeless Records. The album features two new tracks, two re-workings (with guest vocalists etc..) and bonus acoustic tracks. 

  Ready and Willing II is a re-working of Ready and Willing, simply with an added array of guest vocalists:

Ryan Key (Yellowcard)
Mike Herrera (MXPX)
Chris DeMakes (Less Than Jake)
Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional)
Chris Conley (Saves The Day)
Matt Pryor (The Get Up Kids)
Brianna Collins (Tigers Jaw)
Mark Hoppus (Blink 182)
Garrett Dale (Red City Radio)
David Wood (Down to Nothing)

  The video for the track features bands (mostly amateur bands) playing and singing along to the track in their bedrooms, garages, schools, practice rooms...anywhere, really. (All bands are listed in the info of the video.) We also get treated to karaoke style captions. It's a fun and interesting video, as was the original video, which had a premise of the band, played by younger actors, coping with fame and the media. This one leaves more of a focus on the music and the lyrics without trying to be too clever, which makes it a subtle yet entertaining delight.
