After returning to the airwaves with their single, ‘Boom‘, Simple Plan are back in 2016 with their new album, ‘Taking One For The Team‘.
The band made the announcement the other day via social media with the following statement:
“It’s been a long journey and you have been extremely patient, so we are very excited to announce that our 5th album, “Taking One For The Team”, will be released on February 19th 2016! We have been working on these new songs for almost 2 years now and we cannot wait to share them with you. We all feel like this is our best album yet and there’s nothing better than knowing that, in a few months, you will be able to hear the final result.
Today, we’re also really stoked to reveal our album cover as well as the first set of dates of the “Taking One For The Team” World Tour. This is the first of many tour announcements coming in the next months, as we prepare to travel all over the world and play shows for all of you.
Thank you all for your amazing support. We can’t wait for you to finally listen to the new record and to see you on tour!
Pierre, Chuck, Jeff, Sebastien and David.”
You can check out the artwork below. Also, the artwork does seem a little reminiscent of their debut album, ‘No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls‘, just minus all the women.
