A very special addition to the SP store this summer is a limited edition Simple Plan...wait for it...skateboard deck! There are only FIFTY (that's right, 50!) being produced, so you know it's going to be the most coveted board at the park this summer.

Hey Astronauts! You might recall that nearly 6 months ago, Simple Plan helped launch Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield into space aboard the International Space Station, as the first Canadian Commander of the ISS!
Mr. Hadfield has been up in space working on some serious space stuff, but he's also been sure to make time for sharing photos from his out-of-this-world experience via Twitter, filming great David Bowie covers and guitar singalongs, including a version of "Astronaut" and shout out to Simple Plan! A "hello" from space - the coolest thing ever, no?!? The guys are floored to have been included on such an amazing historical adventure and thought it only fitting to bring the galaxies together and finish off "Astronaut" where Mr. Hadfield left off, right here on Earth.
Have a watch and tweet a 'Welcome Home!' to Commander Hadfield, the Astronaut of all SP Astronauts!
Last month the guys were in Japan to play Punkspring and a few headlining shows. 3 of the shows, the guys got to play with Weezer. As you know, Rivers, the lead singer of Weezer sang on CKMHOY. So this was the perfect opportunity to have Rivers sing the song with the guys. Here is some of the highlights.
Japan has always been one of Simple Plan's most favourite places to visit, and if you didn't know by now, the guys recently recorded a Japanese version of "Summer Paradise" featuring their friend Taka from One OK Rock!
When SP was in Japan just a few weeks ago, all of the guys got to hang out and film an official video for the track! You can watch it live now and visit the Land of the Rising Sun if you haven't been before!

Last May, Simple Plan traveled to Hanoi, Vietnam to participate in the massive MTV Exit project to raise awareness and help educate youth on the dangers and realities of human trafficking and exploitation. During their time there, the guys spent time with survivors and learned more about the global issue from local educators on what the reality is like to be an individual who is at risk of human trafficking.
In true Simple Plan fashion, the guys documented their experiences and want everyone to get involved in helping to end these horrific crimes. In partnership with MTV Exit, USAid, AusAID and WalkFree, Simple Plan has released their video diary of their journey in Vietnam. You can read more about it on MTV Buzzworthy and also watch the SP+MTVExit video for "This Song Saved My Life".
The guys were in China last week and had an awesome time. Here are some of the crazyness that went on!.
