New album - info from a press conference in Mexico

2013-10-21 | 00:10:00 | Simple Plan
When Simple Plan was in Mexico at the MTV World Stage, they also held a press conference which has been shared to us by Simple Plan Mexico. Unfortunately, it is not available in Sweden. Simple Plan CZ published the video from the press conference (which is unavailable), where Simple Plan answered some questions from the journalists and told them what they are doing now, for two weeks they said that their new EP will be released in 1-2 months, that the next album will probably be released in 2014 - however, it is still very much time left and no date has been set, so it can therefore be released in 2015. They also spoke about a live DVD.
So we'll just have to wait and see what happens! (And when it happens!)

Tonight Alive & Simple Plan

Simple Plan in Australia with Jennah from Tonight Alive in 2011
After Simple Plan unfortunately had to cancel their performances at the Vans Warped Tour Australia 2013, they have now confirmed that the band will play a gig in Perth, Australia. Not at the Warped Tour, but another gig of their own where Tonight Alive will be opening for them, something they also did when the band was there in November 2011. The gig will take place at December 3rd this year.
Tonight Alive is a band from Australia, and they recently published a video at Vevo where they talk about Simple Plan as one of their biggest musical influences.
This is what Tonight Alive said about Simple Plan:

“If we had like a band practice and we finished band practice and still had an afternoon to go, we’d like all sit down and watch a band DVD.” – Jake Hardy

“One of the main ones we used to watch was Simple Plan’s first DVD. It’s called A Big Package For You and it was pretty much a chronicle of the two years they spent from like recording their first album – they went from an absolutely unknown band to just touring the whole world. I guess for us, we would just sit there, watch that and be like: ‘That’s awesome! We wanna go there and we wanna do that!’” – Cam Adler

“I think we’ve worked with like a bunch of artists that have had like a major influence on us when we were growing up – like Simple Plan. When we were touring with them, they were exactly like what they were like on the DVD. Like just the most down-to-earth dudes.” – Jake Hardy

“To be able to support them on the tour in Australia was such an honor, to meet them, to shake their hands. And I think we took a lot away from that tour, even though it was very short. I guess it was just easy to see why they’ve gotten so far.” – Jenna McDougall
