Simple Plan To Release First-Ever EP "Get Your Heart On - The Second Coming" On December 3rd November 25 2013
With a career that spans more than a decade, multi-platinum Montreal-based Simple Plan has earned widespread acclaim and a global fan following for their genre-defying blend of classic punk energy and modern pop sonics. On December 3, the band will release their first EP “Get Your Heart On – The Second Coming!” available both digitally and as a physical CD in Canada.
Ahead of next week’s release, the EP is now streaming in Canada on MuchMusic.com and Zik.ca.
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 for "Get Your Heart On!" and it was a very tough process to narrow them down to the 11 that made the final cut for the album.
As we are starting to work on our upcoming 5th album and closing the "GYHO!" chapter after 2 years of amazing shows all over the world, we thought it would be very cool to give our fans some new songs to get excited about. We love these songs and had a great time recording them over the last few months. We can't wait to hear what our fans will think of the new music and are even more stoked to be writing a brand new album for them!
-Pierre, Chuck, Sebastien, Jeff and David
