Simple Plan have remained one of pop punk’s biggest and longest running bands from the 2000s, due to releasing various songs that hit fans in different ways. This continues with the band’s first new song in 2 years titled “The Antidote”. With a catchy chorus that fans both new and old will be singing for a long time, this single marks the band’s first showing from their upcoming album which will apparently come out in 2022. Listen to the single below and let us know what you think.
“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.
They continue: “We wrote and recorded the song before the pandemic hit and in lots of ways, it 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.”
