In a recent interview with Fuse, Gilbert revealed making music actually strengthened the couple’s relationship:
“Personally, Hayley and I, we’d been dating for six years, and we hit a rough patch in our relationship, and it was great, being able to get that out in these songs”.
The NFG guitarist and producer went on to say:”It made things better for us, you know what I’m saying? There was so much going on at this time that you can dig deep into the record. That’s another thing, what the songs of ‘Resurrection’ are about; looking at the challenges not as negative things but to really take them in a way that tests your value as a person”.
Chad Gilbert has recently produced albums by bands such as A Day To Remember, Candy Hearts and Trapped Under Ice.
New Found Glory’s latest album ‘Resurection’ is out now.
Paramore’s deluxe version of their self-titled album is also out now
