On December 3rd, multi-platinum Montreal based Simple Plan will release their first-ever EP, Get Your Heart On - The Second Coming. Ahead of next week’s release, the EP is now streaming in Canada on both MuchMusic.com and Zik.ca.
A testament to their enduring popularity, Simple Plan’s fourth studio album, 2011’s GET YOUR HEART ON!, certified gold in Canada, and spawned international hit singles with “Jet Lag” and “Summer Paradise.” Since the album’s release, the band has toured the world multiple times, playing in front of over 1.5 million fans.
Pierre, Chuck, Sebastien, Jeff and David have expressed, "We're really excited to release our first EP and share some new music with our fans all over the world. Get Your Heart On - The Second Coming! is a collection of songs we wrote during the songwriting sessions for our last album. We came up with over 75 songs... it was a very tough process to narrow them down to the 11 that made the final cut for the album."
