Man Overboard's Justin Collier on Pop Punk, New Jersey, and New Found Glory

Man Overboard, a Garden State pop punk group, is enjoying a whirlwind career. After touring with New Found Glory last year, the band just wrapped up a series of shows in the UK, and is gearing up for its first American headlining tour.

The group has released 50 or 60 songs since it formed in 2008 and continues to tour constantly. Through August 5, the last day of Warped Tour, Man Overboard is planning on playing 110 shows this year.

One of those stops is Wednesday, February 29 at The Underground, so we caught up with guitarist Justin Collier to discuss New Jersey music scene, touring, and the nature of pop punk.
