This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Should Steal My Girl be changed to Steal My Sound???
Just a day (or two) after their latest single, Steal My Girl, was
released leaked, the song has been compared to another with claims that the beginning melody is eerily similar to that of New Found Glory's It's Not Your Fault!
Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory went to Twitter to point out the similarities of the two tracks, saying:
Wow did not realize this was gonna be a story. It's not a story. My original tweet was a joke anyway. Music influences music. No one cares

It's nice to see Chad wasn't taking this all too seriously. Music does have a tendency to influence music in other genres!
Listen to both tracks (below) and decide for yourself!
