Steve Klein, once a founding member as well as the former guitarist for New Found Glory has been convicted of indecent exposure following a number of charges raised against him over six years ago.

Klein was a member of New Found Glory from 1997 up until his removal from the band in 2013 when the allegations came to light.

In December 2013, as per a report published via idobiKlein was arraigned at San Luis Obispo Superior Court and pled not guilty to multiple felony charges–two counts of lewd conduct with a minor under the age of 14, three counts of lewd conduct with a minor 14 or 15, one count of intent to commit lewd act with a minor, and one count of possession of child pornography.

According to a report published by The Tribune, the conviction was confirmed during a trial in San Luis Obispo Superior Court last month after accepting a plea agreement.

Music Video Roundup 16/08/19

It’s 4PM on a Friday! This means it’s time for the music video roundup. If you’re new to either the blog or these music video roundup posts, this is how it works. Every week, I watch some of the best recently released music videos and compile them into a list for everyone’s viewing pleasure. They’re span across all the different genres, so expect something different for most of the tracks. Up first this week are newcomers Like Giants. They’ve recently announced their debut UP, ‘Sovereign’ where frontman Daniel Kai has said:

“We wanted to create something that infused elements of bands that we have all separately taken influence from, with heavy breakdowns that will excite fans of heavier music, but the jumpy pop punk rhythms and melodies that will excite fans of bands like Neck Deep, State Champs and the like, with lyrics that everyone who listens can relate to, talking about issues that most people will experience in their day to day lives.”

Their lead single for the EP, ‘Cut And Run’ can be viewed below.


Switching things up to a more well known band, Bring Me The Horizon have recently released a video which features a montage of live shots, animated clips and anime! Yes, anime! Here’s ‘sugar honey ice & tea.


Ahead of their headlining stance over at this year’s Reading & Leeds festivals, Twenty One Pilots have dropped a video for their track, ‘The Hype’, which they filmed over the weekend of their hometowns show in Columbus, Ohio. Want to know what to expect? Check out their video below.


Next on the list, we’re heading across the pond to Essex for InMe. They’ve recently beefed up their line-up to a quintet as they’ve released, ‘The Next Song’.

On the track, frontman Dave Mcpherson has commented on its lyrical concept.

“This is a song about constantly singing about someone to the point of mental excess, and promising that the next song is going to be the last one I write about that person. The guys ran with this from the demo I made and painted their melodies all over it to make a much bigger sound, a big anthem that’s also quite heavy in its own way. ‘The Next Song’ is pop catharsis for me.”

Check out ‘The Next Song’ below.

Going to Kentucky for the next five-piece band in the form of White Reaper. This is another band who’s also at this year’s Reading & Leeds festivals but they give the fans just what they want. Check out ‘Real Long Time’ below.


Moving to the rising rockers Black Futures who’s released a new video for ‘Body & Soul’,  which is set to be on their soon to be released record, ‘Never Not Nothing’

On the track, the band have said:

“‘Body & Soul’ is a simple, singular expression. We are all the same cocktail of matter squished together to form a body. A vessel for experience and feelings. It’s time to free yourself from the shackles of conformity.

Drain your brain of hyper capitalist smug and become steward of all life! An empathy machine! Humans; the protectors of existence! Gather as a mass of humanity and have an apocalypse prevention party! Giving the meaningless meaning! I am you and you are me! Make Weird & Live Free!

Or summink like that! At least that’s what Joe Strummer told me in my dreams.”


Have we had any more bands from Scotland on the list apart from Woes lately? Now we do! Neshiima have got a lead single off their upcoming ‘Green’ EP! This will be the final instalment of their EP trilogy series.

Liam Hesslewood (Vocals) has said:

“This song was a tough one to write, as the theme is suicide prevention. The main hook outlines negative emotions that can trigger the need to take life into our own hands. The verses reflect on those that we are willing to let go, to see if they return to us or not.

It’s a plea to those in need to recognise that sometimes the dark clouds aren’t permanent. There is always a better way. It addresses the fact that numbing out the world through isolation only makes the situation worse.

With both this song and its video, we’re trying to show that we all need each other. The grass may not always be greener on the other side, but you must nurture what you have and learn to grow in your own way with the support of others… and by being a support to them.”


Everyone knows about Twilight right? The vampire film that’s not really scary or very vampyric in any way? Christina Perri had a song on one of the films (I have no idea which one, because I ‘ve never seen any of them).

Now though, New Found Glory have covered the track where they have not only recorded a cover, they’ve made a video for the track!


Everyone who is a Korn fan! I know I’ve kept you waiting until the final two videos here but the wait is worth it. This video isn’t your usual video as well, it’s a very trippy visualiser so there’s something different in this weeks list as well!

Check out ‘Cold’ below.


And for the final selection of this weeks Music Video Roundup, this has to be my favourite video this year. It’s silly, weird but fantastic! Alex Gaskath has a directors credit now for Simple Creatures latest video and what does the latest music video for his side project with Mark Hoppus contain? Sock Puppets! Just watch this video to believe it.

And that’s it for another week of music video roundup. Don’t forget to check back next week at 4PM sharp for another countdown of ten of the best recent music videos to feast your eyes upon. There’s also new posts every day on the Almost anything Media so be sure to check out anything that might catch your eye.

Music Video Roundup 05/04/19

It’s 4PM on a Friday! This means it’s time for the music video roundup. If you’re new to either the blog or these music video roundup posts, this is how it works. Every week, I watch some of the best recently released music videos and compile them into a list for everyone’s viewing pleasure. They’re span across all the different genres, so expect something different for most of the tracks. The first track is a cover from New Found Glory, and the track? ‘This Is Me’ from The Greatest Showman ut the video?? Erm… we’ll let you decide on it.


Now, following on the news of their debut record, ‘Fragments’, Sister Shotgun have had their lead single released and a brand new video produced by Mockingbird Studios. Vocalist Chloe Ozwell on the track has said:

“The song takes me back to a place where I was really vulnerable, but it’s about reclaiming my power. I hope it can serve as a reminder to keep pushing no matter what life throws at you.”


Moving to some Pop-Punk goodness for the next track, we have some Aussie newcomers on UNFD in the form of Yours Truly and this track is off their upcoming EP, ‘Afterglow’ set to be released on April 12th.


We’re going to switch things up again and go for some Post-Metal mayhem from Pleiades which will be the first cut from their upcoming EP and the follow up to their 2016 debut, ‘Symptoms Of The Human Being’.

Vocalist Andy Calderbank has said:

“‘All At Your Mercy’ is lyrically about control and the catharsis we feel when we finally give it up. As Humans, we welcome consequence, reluctantly accept responsibility and approach the future with caution. I guess you could describe it as Agnosiophobia or the fear of not knowing what will happen.”


And shifting the focus to some Emo Rockers, we’ll be having some Free Throw in this weeks list. They’ve recently released ‘Today Is Especially Delicious’ from their record ‘What’s Past is Prologue’ and there’s one thing which it does have a lot of. Fruit.


Next, Ahead of their tour across Europe, Japanese metalcore group Crystal Lake have given fans a taste of their music in the form of ‘Hail To The Fire’ which is just the latest track to off ‘Helix’ which saw an official release outside of their home country just last month.


Shall we try a different country for the next video? Ukrainian hitters Jinjer have a visual spectacle for us all in their live performance for ‘Teacher, Teacher’. This is the fourth single off their EP, ‘Micro’ and on the track, the band have said:


Moving back to Britain to the Alt Rock scene are the newcomers in Ruled By Raptors who were born from the ashes of Digits and the South East Northumberland band have some energy to give in the form of their track, ‘Time’.


For the penultimate video this week, I’ve chosen to go with Grandson. Recently the socially conscious artist has recently announced he’s playing a warm-up show for Slam Dunk Festival on May 22nd at London’s Underworld and May 23rd at The Glasgow Cathouse. Now though, he’s recently released a video for ‘Apologize’ which is the lead single off his most recent EP, ‘a modern tragedy, vol.2’.


And for the final post, we’re going for controversy, we’re going for industrial kings which can only point to one giant band, Rammstein. The German superstars recently announcing their long-awaited self-titled record which is set to be released on May 17th via UME / Spinefarm. With the announcement came with the music video which has caused controversy among Jewish leaders in Germany with eh commissioner of anti-Semitism in Germany saying: “I consider this a tasteless exploitation of artistic freedom,”


And that’s it for another week of music video roundup. Don’t forget to check back next week at 4PM sharp for another countdown of ten of the best recent music videos to feast your eyes upon. There’s also new posts every day on the Almost anything Media so be sure to check out anything that might catch your eye.

Music Video Roundup 08/03/19

It’s Friday at 4PM! This means it’s time for the music video roundup. If you’re new to either the blog or these music video roundup posts, this is how it works. Every week, I watch some of the best recently released music videos and compile them into a list for everyone’s viewing pleasure. They’re span across all the different genres, so expect something different for most of the tracks. First up is someone with a love/hate relationship with everyone and that is Andy Black of the Black Veil Brides. Following the teasing, he’s announced his upcoming solo record, ‘The Ghost Of Ohio’, which is set to drop on April 12th 2019. Of that, the latest single, ‘Westwood Road’, has a video which you can see below.


Next up are the recently emerging duo Sadsun. They’re from the North East, namely Newcastle and they’ve introduced themselves in the best way possible in the form of their debut single, ‘Control’ which you can view below.








Who loves a good old fashioned performance in a music video? That’s exactly what Gloo are going for, in the video for their amazing track ‘Stop And Stare’. Check it out below.









Last year, The Dangerous Summer returned with the first record in five years but they aren’t any signs of the band slowing down in releasing new material. ‘Where Were You When The Sky Opened Up’ does pack a punch but is instantly different from their roots.



Now, do you enjoy weird Science experiments, neon glasses and creepy doctors? Well, Palisades new video for ‘Erase The Pain’ is the video for you! It’s taken from their fourth record, ‘Erase The Pain’, which was released at the end of 2018.


This is a huge new video. Crystal Lake have revealed a huge brand new video for ‘Devilcry’ It’s off their 2018 record, ‘HELIX’ for which they’re currently touring for in America with August Burns Red, Fit For A King and Miss May I. It’s heavy, techy and filled with lots of live footage.





One artist to watch this year is the ever fantastic Cory Wells. He’s about to tour, supporting the legendary William Ryan Key (Formally Yellowcard) and now has something for us to feast our eyes upon in the form of ‘Patience’






Who loves a good cover? I do. Pop-Punk kings New Found Glory have ‘From The Screen To Your Stereo 3’ dropping soon. This is their record where they cover trailers from films in feature-length films. The first track off this particular release is in the form of ‘The Power Of Love’ by Huey Lewis & The News, from the 1985 Sci-Fi classic, Back To The Future. Check out the video below.




A few weeks ago was Valentines Day, and there was a special collaboration between Yungblud, Halsey and Travis Barker (Blink-182). When the three were in Sydney together, they had to perform it live but now, there is a video for the track. Check it out below.







And now, we’re at the last track of this week’s Music Video countdown. Off their debut record, ‘One Of Us’, is the title track which features members of the band, Fever 333 in a protest. This is coming off one of the best records released so far this year and now, here is one of the best videos of the year so far in a march alongside the United Teachers of Los Angeles in support of their strike.


And that’s it for another week of music video roundups. Be sure to check back next week for another ten of the best right here at Almost Anything Media.

Next up are Homebound. They’ve revealed a new video for ‘Coming Clean’ and on the track, Vocalist Charlie Boughton has said: “The  over-thinking  and  played  out  scenarios  we  mull  over  and  over  in  our  heads  until  we  realise  there’s  nothing  left  to  do  but  say  what  needs  to  be  said.”


Now for some cinematics from none other than Knuckle Puck. They’ve recently announced they’re coming back to the UK this October with Tiny Moving Parts and Movements but until then, there’s the latest video for ‘Want Me Around’.

New Found Glory Announce Show To Raise Money For Victims Of The Victims Of The MSD High School Shooting

These are legends right here.


New Found Glory have announced the details of a benefit show to help raise money for the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

Joining them will be Chris Carrabba from Dashboard Confessional and Ryan Key of Yellowcard.

All profits of the show are going toward the Broward Education Foundation Stoneman Douglas Fund.


“The members of New Found Glory would like to start by saying this is a statement that we wish we never had to write in the first place. Our hearts are broken, and we cannot imagine the pain the victim’s families, friends, students, teachers, and anyone else impacted by the recent tragedy at MSD must be feeling. While we feel there are no words that we can say or do to fix this in any way, we wish to let you know that our hearts are heavy with the pain that this event has caused to so many.

We want to stress that the most important part of the grieving process is to focus on the healing of those affected by this senseless act. As some of you may or may not know, half of our band went to MSD so it is important to us that we do as much as we possibly can to help the school and families of the victims. They deserve our love, support, and help, and we will help in any way we can. We have decided that, in an effort to help raise funds for those impacted by the events at MSD and to honor the victims and heroes, NFG will be playing a benefit show at Pompano Beach Amphitheater on May 16th.

Tickets will go on sale Monday, March 5 at 10am ET. Also joining us will be Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional) and Ryan Key (formerly of Yellowcard). All proceeds from the show will be donated to the official Broward Education Foundation Stoneman Douglas Fund who provide relief to those affected by this tragedy.

In addition to the show, we are releasing a MSD inspired t-shirt, available on our web store (, with all the profits also going towards the Broward Education Foundation Stoneman Douglas Fund.

We are, and always will be, proud to be part of the Coral Springs/Parkland community. We love you all, and together we will get through this, one day at a time. #parklandstrong”

The t-shirt the band have released looks like this:




New Music Video’s 19/12/17

Hello, I know this post is coming a little late (4 Days) but that’s because I was away in Newcastle and otherwise preoccupied at the weekend and away from a computer screen. Although, it’s here now so let’s get on with these next ten music videos.


Up first are up and comers from Scotland, Divide who have had to change their name recently but this video for ‘Last Words’ comes off their recently released EP, Embers.

Speaking on the track, ‘Last Words’, vocalist Nicole Mason said:  ‘Last Words’ was inspired by a book called ‘The Lovely Bones’. The idea was to write a song from from the prospective of someone who has had their life taken from them, that really sparked something in me. To give them a voice, to give people who are lost in life the message that it’s okay to feel that way but you need to keep fighting.

I loved making this music video. We had our good friend Kitsch Me Vintage (Stylist & Make Up) on-board. I wanted to show people that there is beauty even in the darkest parts of this world. It’s okay to be different.”


Next, with their newest record ‘Underworld’ out in less than a month, Tonight Alive have recently dropped a new track off the forthcoming record; Crack My Heart. On the meaning behind this one, Jenna has said: “The concept of cracking the heart is to allow the precious, vulnerable self to come through and be free. The painful, yet liberating experience involves the emotional and energetic decalcification of the hardened heart.


This next band has just recently released their new EP, ‘Sunday Brunch’ and Chapel have served their own spot of brunch in this video for Don’t You Love Me.


Let’s take things a little heavier for this next track. Sheffield rockers Rolo Tomassi have just dropped a video to accompany a track off their soon to be released fifth LP, ‘Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It’. They’re away supporting TheNumber 12 Looks Like You in America for the first time ever. But in the meantime, here’s their newest video for Balancing The Dark.


Next month, the Yorkshire rockers Marmozets will release their second record, ‘Knowing What You Know Now’ which will be the follow up to ‘The Weird And Wonderful Marmozets’, released in 2014. For now though, here’s their latest video for Major System Error.


More from British Rock, this time it’s Black Foxxes who have a very busy 2018 ahead of them. They’ve recently released details of a new record, headline tour and their video for the brilliant, Sæla.


South Coasters Acres just debuted a video for their new track, ‘Unwelcome’, which was shot and directed by Zak Punchin (Modern Error Vocalist). This is their first material since the band’s EP, In Sickness & Health which was released earlier this year.


Next up is Sci-Fi brilliance from Our Last Night. This is taken from their latest release ‘Selective Hearing’ which is out now.


Penultimate track time. This is from Legends of Pop-Punk; New Found Glory. This track celebrates their 20th anniversary of the band with the video compiling of archived footage from across their career.


And the last video of the day is a live video. It’s from the new live album, ‘One More Light Live’  and it’s nothing ut beautiful. Check out Sharp Edges Below.


And that’s it for another round of music videos. I’ll do my very best to have the next post on time this week but as a final message from Almost Anything Music, Happy Holidays!

Trash Boat Robbed

Another band have been robbed. Seriously?? Why does this keep happening?!

The band are currently on tour with New Found Glory, while in Chicago, their van was broken into and had possessions stolen.

Here’s the tweet they posted about what was stolen.
