November 12th 2013 – Shocked by the magnitude of the destruction caused by Typhoon Haiyan, one of the most powerful and destructive storms recorded in the region’s history, the members of Simple Plan decided they had to do something to help. Because they have had the privilege of visiting this great country many times over the last 10 years and have an amazing Filipino fan base, this disaster really hit home for the band and they are deeply saddened by the human catastrophe that has hit the Filipino people.
We've been talking about new songs and the new EP for a while now and we're excited to finally share the first little bit of music with you! You can now check out a preview of "The Rest Of Us" right here!

Earlier this morning, in celebration of International Music Day, the Université de Sherbrooke's School of Music received a very special, one of a kind gift from Jeff, his very own guitar!
As a invited dignitary to the university, Jeff came to donate his guitar in person to the faculty and give one final performance with it before passing it on to the next generation of musicians at the school. Étienne Déziel is the lucky classical guitar student at the School of Music who will use Jeff's guitar during his entire undergraduate career. He also gave a performance on the guitar during the event, and the Université de Sherbrooke got this photo of Jeff and Étienne below!
Jeff explains, "Handing over my own guitar, which I used as a student of the Montréal conservatory, is a symbolic gesture, I couldn't imagine passing it on to anyone not in the next generation of musicians...this guitar let me develop my potential and I hope that it will do the same for the student receiving it. The guitar holds a great deal of sentimental value for me. It has a number of outstanding qualities. Its high level of precision charmed me and the guitar has the gift of amplifying what the player asks of it."
Check out LaPress.ca for more news on the event and a video interview with Jeff!
When Simple Plan visited Vietnam with MTV Exit, they performed at My Dinh Stadium for over 40 000 youth. The purpose of the event wasn't just to bring together everyone for a night of music, but to bring everyone together in the journey to end human trafficking and modern slavery, an issue that affects people everywhere in the world. Taking action to help improve the well-being and safety of yourself, others and your community is important. But before you take action, it’s important to know what the issues are, the signs associated with those issues and what steps you can take to initiate positive change.
Tara Dermott, Head of Development at MTVExit, recently wrote a guest column in The Guardian on the importance of both awareness and action, and how Simple Plan helped bring awareness of the realities of human trafficking to local, regional and global youth with their documentary.
