Simple Plan Release Emotional New Single ‘The Antidote’

simple plan (2)

The Canadian Pop-Punk legends release a track off their upcoming sixth album – their first new music in two years!

The wait is over for The Antidote,’ the brand new single from multi-platinum selling Simple Plan. A poignant and moving track, ‘The Antidote’ marks the band’s first new music in two years.

“We’re so excited to finally release ‘The Antidote,’ the first single off our upcoming sixth album! The song is a throwback to our classic Simple Plan sound but with a modern twist. It has all the elements our fans have come to love and expect from our band: a big, energetic chorus and honest and heartfelt lyrics that deal with life and the struggles we all face. It feels like the perfect starting point and a great preview of what’s to come on the album,” the band shares.

The band wrote and recorded the song before the pandemic hit, and the band believes that the music has become even more relevant after everything that happened over the last 20 months.

“A lot of people are going through some tough times right now, and the song talks about the importance of having someone or something to turn to when life gets really hard. 

“For a lot of our fans and for us, it’s been music. Its power to heal, comfort and be a lifeline has never been greater and more needed than now. We hope this song will hit home with our fans and help them deal with the difficult moments we’re all facing.” 

Fans can look forward to more new music, including a new album, in 2022. 2022 also marks the 20th anniversary of Simple Plan’s debut album ‘No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls’, which has recently gained attention on TikTok through the viral “I’m Just A Kid” challenge.

The song has inspired millions of videos, including Will SmithEd SheeranUsher, and more. “I’m Just A Kid” was certified RIAA Platinum last year.
