Montreal-based punk pop quintet who have been doing it for the kids, both musically and through their Simple Plan charity foundation, over the years.
From their rise to MTV superstardom through pop-punk’s modern resurgence, Simple Plan have been an indelible part of pop culture since forming in Montreal in 1999. They’ve sold 10 million albums worldwide, won multiple Juno Awards, performed at the 2010 Winter Olympics – and, most recently, launched the omnipresent #ImJustAKid TikTok challenge that’s spawned more than 3.4 million videos, including clips from Hilary Duff, Ed Sheeran, Usher and Venus and Serena Williams.
But most importantly, they’ve never lost connection with what really matters: their audience. “We feel so lucky to have fans who love our old and new material,” says drummer Chuck Comeau. “We’re very proud of our past, but we’re even more excited about the future. We truly always feel we’re 3 minutes away from the best or biggest song of our career.”
Ten years on from their 2002 debut, No Pads, No Helmets... Just Balls, Simple plan returned in 2022 with their sixth studio album, Harder Than It Looks. The first self-released album from Comeau, vocalist Pierre Bouvier and guitarists Sébastien Lefebvre and Jeff Stinco, the album respected Simple Plan’s storied career while pushing them forward in new ways, with songs like 'The Antidote', 'Ruin My Life' (ft. Deryck Whibley), 'Congratulations', 'Wake Me Up (When This Nightmare’s Over)' and 'Iconic'.
