Sticks and Stones (New Found Glory album)

Sticks and Stones is the third studio album by American pop punk band New Found Glory. New Found Glory released their self-titled second album in September 2000 as a joint release between MCA and Drive-Thru Records. MCA had a distribution deal that allowed them to acquire Drive-Thru Records' bands over a period of time. Lead single "Hit or Miss" received heavy airplay rotation from the US's biggest rock radio stations. Appearing on the Warped Tour and featuring in the film American Pie 2 helped increase the band's profile. Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus was impressed by New Found Glory's self-titled album, going as far as to champion them in an issue of Rolling Stone, they supported Blink-182 on their summer tour. Blink-182's manager Rick DeVoe met New Found Glory, soon afterwards, began managing them. By September 2001, the group were making plans to release a new album by mid-2002. At the end of the year, bassist Ian Grushka got married, he was unable to go on a honeymoon due to their record label paying for a bus to transport the band from Florida to California two days later.

The group set up residence in apartments in La Jolla, a community within San Diego, for the next three months. In February 2002, the band began recording with Neal Avron. Sessions took place at DML and Signature Sound Studios in San Diego, Larrabee West Studios in West Hollywood, NRG Studios in North Hollywood, California, he was assisted by Mike Harris, Juan Jose Ayala, Ted Regier and Mark Kiczula. For the group's self-titled, Avron wanted a laidback approach for the drums. For Sticks and Stones, he had more confidence in letting drummer Cyrus Bolooki played what he wanted. Bolooki tracked his parts with the tom on his left side, he started playing with this set up while on tour with Fenix TX, whose drummer had a tom and China cymbal on his left side. Bolooki thought he wouldn't be able to use it as he was right-handed. After setting up his kit in that manner, he found it easier for certain parts. Several members of contemporary bands contributed to the recordings: Rusty Pistachio and Toby Morse of H2O, Mark Hoppus of Blink-182, Bane and What Feeds the Fire, Matt Skiba and Dan Andriano of Alkaline Trio.

In addition, Chris Georggin of the group's management team Rick DeVoe Management added backing vocals on "Something I Call Personality". Hoppus was brought in to add vocals, but after Grushka was unable to do bass for "Something I Call Personality", Hoppus did it instead. Jay Baumgardner mixed the recordings, before they were mastered by Tom Baker at Precision Mastering in Hollywood. Guitarist Chad Gilbert would write rough ideas and jam them out with the rest of the band. After a while, guitarist Steve Klein would begin adding lyrics to it. Klein and vocalist Jordan Pundik would work on the melody, before sharing it with the rest of the group. Bolooki, who started out as a guitarist, contributed a few ideas that Gilbert or Klein would build a whole song around. According to Klein, they attempted to move away from lyrical nature of their self-titled, on which, every song was about girls, he added that since becoming a full-time touring act, it was difficult for them to maintain relationships, which had an influence on the lyrics.

Musically, it retains the pop punk sound found on the self-titled, while incorporating new elements. Hardcore punk-influenced breakdowns are featured. Avron said the group experimented with different tempos naming "Sonny" and "Head on Collison". Discussing the album's title, Gilbert said Sticks and Stones "fit with the sound of the record and what a lot of the lyrics are about"; the group wanted a track that would match the popularity of "Hit or Miss". It was the last song written for the album, evolved from a sole riff to a full song within a day or two, it talks about a guy going out with a girl. She wanted to take to take the next step, but due to past experiences, the guy picks his friends over her. "Head on Collison" is about someone you continually get into arguments with, feeling that you're at a loss as a result. The opening two snare hits; the four bass notes that follow were done by Bolooki. On March 13, 2002, Sticks and Stones was announced for release in June. In March and April, the group went on a tour of Australia.

On April 12, the album's artwork was revealed. It features a girl fighting. Klein explained. You could hit each other and it would be fun, and I think. When you have an argument with a girl it can break your heart or ruin your life." Sticks and Stones was released on June 11 through Drive-Thru Records. The UK edition includes the bonus tracks "Anniversary", "Forget Everything" an acoustic version of "The Story So Far". Between late June and mid-August, the group went on the Warped Tour. On July 16, a music video was filmed for "Head on Collison" on the Universal Studios backlot; the video, directed by the Malloys, features the band on a 1930s movie set. While the video progresses, the group realize they are on the wrong film set, before taking the stage and beginning to perform. On August 27, "My Friends Over You" was released as a single. While the track was doing well at radio, the president of the group's label stopped funding the track, decided to reinvest the money
