Simple Plan talks about the 15-year career for Radio-Canada

Yesterday Radio Canada aired a brand new interview with Sebastien Lefebvre, Jeff Stinco and Chuck Comeau. The chat was recorded back in 2017 on December, 12th.

The guys chatted with René Homier-Roy for 54 minutes. Among the subjects, they talks about Simple Plan’s success around the world during the 15 years of their career.

Listen to the whole interview on the radio’s website, click here to access our Gallery with some pictures taken during their visit to the studios and check below a recap with some of the highlights:

“The success of the group went through a common dream. We setted the conditions in place quiclkly. We were on the road for 300 days a year,” says Chuck Comeau, Sébastien Lefebvre and Jeff Stinco, three of the five members of the Montreal’s band Simple Plan. They also said to René Homier-Roy that they have worked hard looking for success with dedication and resilience, and loving making music together.

The band was born from the meeting of “five completely different individuals whose had pop punk in common,” and that after years of practice in the basement of Comeau’s parents, they went to conquer the world. The name of the band is inspired by the movie A Simple Plan, watched by a friend. “He gave as a name and we thought we would end up changing if we found something better,” says Jeff Stinco.

With the exception of Japan, where “I’m Just A Kid” was an instant (and unexpected) successm Simple Plan had to fight to succeed on different markets. “In every country we had to work hard. It was a 3 year marathon before we get to know in every country,” remembers Chuck Comeau. “He reminds of a concert in Germany, when they played in front of nine people. “It defined our brand in a certain way. It put us on in our place and it showed us that nothing is guaranteed.”

During 15 years of their career, Simple Plan sold 12 million records without having support of the music critics. “It’s melodic music for fans. Maybe that’s the reason it was easier to day that it was insignificant pop music. After 15 years, when I look at the impact of our music on people’s lifes, I tell myself that the priority wasn’t to have 5 stars in Le Devoir. That’s not we were looking for. We wanted to have fun at the Bell Center,” concludes Sebastien Lefebvre, referring to the sold out concert in 2005 in Quebec City.

Simple Plan may perform in South America in May

It’s been one month since the announcement of the “No Pads, No Helmets… Just Balls: 15th Anniversary Tour” dates in Australia and New Zealand. Since then, Simple Plan fans keep asking if the band still plans to extend the tour to other countries.

We all know that theres chances for the tour to end in South America, however neither tha band or local producers made any official release to confirm this possibility. But we found a pool posted online that can change this scenario.

In a post made by the entertainment agency Grupo Talento Peruano on Facebook, fans were asked who they would like to see on the 10th edition of the festival Vivo X El Rock in Peru. The choices are Rage Against The Machine and Simple Plan.

The band Rage Against The Machine is in hiatus right now. Their last tour was in 2011 and, until now, theres no rumour of a reunion tour for the next months. However three members of RATM have a side project called Prophets of Rage that is doing a world tour and have dates available on their tour schedule for the time of the festival.

On the other side, Simple Plan is doing the last cicle of their tour. The band’s schedule have just some performances at Disney for the next month, New Zealand and Australia on April, and a special performance in Canada on August. Until then, theres no sign that the band are going to add much more dates for this year, but the band members already said they still plan to go to some places they didn’t had the chance to go last year, including South America.

The 2018 edition of Vivo X El Rock happens on May, 19th and 26th and the only band confirmed is Deftones. According to the festival official page on Facebook, the full lineup will be added in February, so, we can expect more reliable news about it until next week.
