New Found Glory guitarist Chad Gilbert is enjoying a new found bill of health. Earlier this week he underwent surgery on his thyroid in order to have part of it removed. Doctors had feared that that part of his thyroid contained some potentially malignant cells. The surgery went fine, and he reported yesterday via Twitter that he his "chillin'" and "cancer-free."

Meanwhile, the Coral Springs band is on the road in support of its latest album, last year's Not Without a Fight. Anthony Raneri, front man for the pop-punk outfit Bayside, has been filling in for Gilbert on guitar. The band is scheduled to play Revolution on February 9 along with Saves the Day, Hellogoodbye, and Fireworks.
