To finish off another amazing year, the boys have been named Alter The Press's "Best Live Band"! Read the whole list here.
Happy holidays everyone!
Hey #SPFamily! As you may have heard, Simple Plan are putting together a very special video for “This Song Saved My Life”, a song that you guys helped write! Just last weekend, the band gathered a bunch of awesome live footage, but need your photos and videos to make it complete. There’s two ways that you can get involved, no matter where in the world you live!
1) Film a video of you and/or your friends singing along to your favourite verse or the chorus “This Song Saved My Life” in front of an iconic backdrop or hometown landmark (London’s Big Ben? Singapore’s Merlion? Corcovado Mountain in Brazil?). You can also shoot your video from your rooms or a personal place that is special to you.
2) Take a photo of yourself with your favourite lyrics from “This Song Saved My Life” written in an expressive manner (you can totally get creative here!)
The important info:
You must record a video statement at the beginning of your submission stating your name and age, and allow the producers of the video for “This Song Saved My Life” permission to use your images in the video compilation.
Films must be formatted in .mov or .mp4. HD quality (1920x1080 px) is preferred and your video MUST NOT be more than 1 minute long (100 mb limit).
All submissions must be received by December 21, 2012, so get crackin’ and you could see yourself in the next Simple Plan video!
There's only fifteen days left until Simple Plan play their very first show in India at Mumbai's Mood Indigo IIT Bombay festival!
Rolling Stone India can't hide their excitement either, they've already talked to Pierre about the band's upcoming debut in India and the beauty of having young and older punk-rock fans.
Just a couple of weeks ago, it was revealed that Simple Plan swept away the vote for Yahoo! Canada's Awards in the Canadian Impact category, for their work and passion towards assisting youth through the Simple Plan Foundation.
While the guys were in Toronto this past weekend, Chuck and Sebastien sat down with Yahoo! Canada to talk about some amazing people they've met through the SPF, how the band keeps the Foundation moving forward and how you can get involved!

Simple Plan have always kept charity close to their hearts, and with the massive launch of their book Simple Plan: The Official Story and Simple Plan: L'Histoire Officielle, the band is keeping with the trend. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each book will go to the Simple Plan Foundation and, in turn, be distributed to various organizations assisting youth in Quebec and Canada.
