Simple Plan will surely keep us up-to-date as they record the new songs. To kick things off, let’s start with a roundup of all that’s gone done in the last three days.
It started a few days ago when guitarist Jeff Stinco picked out his guitars for album #6:
Then, on July 25th, the five members of Simple Plan were together and officially began recording:
Today, the band made the official announcement:
Update 7/27: Here’s one more update as the band continues recording through the weekend:
Simple Plan’s last album, Taking One For The Team, came out in February 2016. It gave us the singles “Boom!,” “I Don’t Wanna Be Sad,” “I Don’t Wanna Go To Bed,” “Opinion Overload,” “Singing In The Rain,” and “Perfectly Perfect.”
Late in 2018, frontman Pierre Bouvier and dummer Chuck Comeau began writing new songs for the upcoming album. They’ve written with a few other songwriters, too, including Travis Clark of We The Kings. Six months ago, Pierre gushed about the “phenomenal” new music they were working on. The men continued writing through spring. Now, with the Warped Tour done, Simple Plan are ready to focus on recording the new songs.
They’re in the studio now, and will likely spend several months recording. While it’s possible we may hear some of their new music before the end of this year, we’ll most likely get the 6th album sometime in 2020.
Stay tuned for more studio updates as Simple Plan continues recording! As always, keep checking back here for all the latest Simple Plan music news.
