Our interview with Simple Plan can be read here.
I think the culture we're in right now, it's never been easier to be discouraged. It's never been easier to be made fun of or to be hurt by what people think. I'm talking bands or even just regular people. There's almost like this license to bash everybody and to say the meanest, most intense stuff online. You're behind your keyboard and you feel like you can say anything you want. I think people don't realize that maybe it affects people. We definitely went through that on this album. But then you have to realize that you build something that's worth protecting, something that's worth it to keep going, something that's worth the effort....

Joel of Good Charlotte, Ashton of 5 Seconds Of Summer, Pierre of Simple Plan, and John from Goldfinger, collaborated with Alex Gaskarth to record a cover of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" last year. Check it out here.
From Alex: Hello my loves! Around this time last year, me and some good friends thought it'd be fun to record a holiday jam for the world to hear. We lit a fire, made hot chocolate, and put our musical spin on a holiday classic, with producer genius, John Feldmann at the helm! We all knew we wanted to do something special with it to help people, so we decided to wait until this year to give everyone a listen! We've been working with Ryan Seacrest Foundation to...

Our interview with Simple Plan can be read here. The band's new album will be released this fall.
For us, it's exciting, because we've got to keep growing and we have to adapt and try new things. It's a weird thing as a band, especially as you have more longevity, it's almost like you can't win because you don't have the excitement of being the brand new band. So people are like, "Okay, what have you got now? It's your fifth record."
Joe DeAndrea on 07/07/15 - 07:32 AM

Head on over to Alter The Press to check out a recent interview they did with Chuck Comeau of Simple Plan. They discuss the band's new book, take a nostalgic look back to the story of the band's origins and much more.
From The Interview It just felt like it was the right time. After ten years since the first album came out ["No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls"] it was good timing. I was so happy we were able to put it out when the band is still current and doing well. This wasn't like when a band puts out a book ten years after they had their biggest hit when their career is going down the train. I thought it would be cool and great timing when things are still going amazing for the band. We...
