Earlier this week, Simple Plan announced their new album, Harder Than It Looks, which is set for release on May 6. Now, they've released a brand new single titled “Congratulations.”
The band spoke at length about creating their first record since 2016 in a press release.
We’re incredibly excited to finally share this news with our fans who have waited so patiently for this album. We poured our hearts and souls into these new songs and we’re so proud of this record.
More than 20 years into our career, we love being in this band more than ever and still have the same passion for playing music and writing songs together that we’ve had since day one.
We made a classic, quintessential Simple Plan record that our fans will absolutely love and it was amazing to go back to our roots and unapologetically embrace what has made this band special to so many people: fun, catchy, honest and emotional songs that will make you feel less alone, put a smile on your face and give you hope.
We truly can’t wait for the world to hear these new songs and to play them live everywhere.
