(If you like: All-American Rejects, Nick Jonas, Hedley)
Long-time pop-punk favourites Simple Plan have not hung up the towels just yet – formed back in 1999, the Montreal-born band are releasing their fifth studio album Taking One for the Team this Friday. And to add to the album’s nostalgic value, the five-piece have teamed up with R&B star Nelly for the album’s lead single “I Don’t Wanna Go To Bed”.
Unlike their previous discography, Taking One for the Team will be a more diverse collection, not just standard pop-punk tracks for angst-filled teens. The new single has the band jumping on the neo-funk revival train with a groovy, soul-pop vibe that resembles Nick Jonas’ more recent work.
As well, Simple Plan contribute to the extensive Baywatch-inspired videos as they take to the beach with swagger and makeshift-style.
