Warped Tour Top 10 – Simple Plan at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA

It’s summer time and that can mean only one thing – the rock and roll summer camp known as the Vans Warped Tour is in full swing!  Now celebrating it’s 17th year of bringing together today’s hottest acts alongside up and coming artists mixed in with the subculture of it all, Warped is alive and well.

The one word that comes to mind when you think of Warped is diversity.  It’s not every day that Paramore and A Day To Remember share the same stage, but in the world of Warped Tour, all things are possible!

Mansfield, MA has been host to a bevy of Warped Tours over the years and the one constant has always been….the rain.  The day may start out beautifully without a cloud in the sky but rest assured by the time the last band has hit the stage a downpour or twelve will have fallen.  It’s become part of the game!

This year we decided to feature galleries of ten featured artists from the day!  Our latest featured band is Simple Plan!  Simple Plan made their triumphant return to Warped Tour this year, much to the delight of the crowd. The band released their new album Get Your Heart On! in June marking their latest release since 2008. It’s good to have them back! Check out our gallery from the show below.

Warped Tour continues through August! For all the remaining dates, hit up the official website here.

Pierre Bouvier of Simple Plan

spmainIt’s been almost two years since we’ve heard anything new from Simple Plan, but don’t think that they’ve been on vacation.  Planning the follow up of two smash hit albums with sales of over seven million copies can keep a band busy! Simple Plan (Pierre Bouvier on vocals, Chuck Comeau on drums, Jeff Stinco on guitar, Sebastien Lefebvre on guitar and David Desrosiers on bass) have been slaving away on their third studio album that drops on February 12th.  Teasing fans with the single When I’m Gone, Simple Plan is sure that they’ve written their most diverse album to date.

Bringing in the heavy artillery of Nate “Danja” Hills (who has worked with Timbaland, Justin Timberlake and Duran Duran) and Max Martin (who has worked with Kelly Clarkson, Avril Lavigne, and James Blunt) the band put together a collection of songs that took them into unchartered territory and challenged them to push themselves in new directions both lyrically and musically; fusing together different genres of music.

Self-titling the album only seemed natural considering how personal the album is to the band.  Self described as “angry, negative, depressive lyrics over really poppy, uplifting music” the band recruited producer Dave Fortman (yes the same one from Ugly Kid Joe!) to produce their album.  Having produced albums by Evanescence and Mudvayne, Dave added the polished edge that the band needed.

Currently on a whirlwind press tour and playing holiday shows across the United States, frontman Pierre took some time to chat with us about the new album, the personal inspiration behind some of the tracks and everything new in the world of Simple Plan.
