Former New Found Glory guitarist Steve Klein was arraigned in San Luis Obispo court on December 12th 2013 accused of multiple felonies to which he pled not guilty. They include 2 counts of lewd conduct with a minor under the age of 14, 3 counts of lewd conduct with a minor 15 or 14, 1 count of intent to commit lewd acts with a minor and 1 count of possession of child pornography.
Klein will be free until his next hearing on March 20 and April 10th. New Found Glory released a statement on the same day as Klein's hearing, stating that the band were parting ways with Klein due to personal differences.
Steve Klein's lawyer, Debra White has made a statement regarding the matter:
New Found Glory have also released a statement to fans:
Upon our return from Warped Tour Australia, Steve made us aware of possible allegations that might be made against him. At that point, not knowing all the details, we made the decision to part ways in order for him to deal with these personal issues. Us 4 members of New Found Glory have given our entire lives to this band and will continue to do so. We’ve been able to play all over the world for the most amazing fans. We can’t wait to get in the studio to make a new album and we can’t wait to get back on the road! Just coming off the Parahoy cruise and a surprise show in our hometown we are more inspired than ever! Thank you so much to everyone around the globe for always sticking by us. The future is bright'.

To celebrate International Women's Day, we thought we'd bring you something different and present you with a post about females in pop punk because unfortunately only a handful exist compared to the number of males. Not that the males aren't doing a good job (they definitely are) but with so much potential talent out there, it's a shame that there aren't more female guitarists, vocalists, bassists and drummers within pop punk. However, although only few exist, the ones that do are quite incredible and have created some brilliant music. Check out some examples below, some are well know and some are not, but be sure to have a listen to their music.
1.Singer/guitarist Mariel Loveland from Candy Hearts. Read her article about sexism in the music industry here.
2.Drummer Brittany Harrell from Veara
3.Singer/ guitarist Maura Ryan from Mixtapes
4. Guitarist/ Vocalist Laura Nichols from HeartSounds
5. Vocalist Georgia Peters from Next Stop Atlanta
6. Ashley (vocals) and Brittany ( Drums) from Smalls
7. Tay Jardine from We are the In Crowd
8. Vocals Jenna McDougall from Tonight Alive
