About Simple Plan
The French-Canadian rock band Simple Plan was formed in 1999. The five-man band consist of Pierre Bouvier as the lead vocalist, Jeff Stinco as the lead guitarist, Sebastien Lefebvre in rythym guitar and back-up vocals, David Desrosiers in bass and back-up vocals, and last but not the least Chuck Comeau in drums and back-up vocals.
Bouvier and Comeau were formerly members of the band Reset. Comeau left the band to go to college. In 1999, Comeau met Stinco and Lefebvre, his high school friends, both members of different bands. They group together and formed their own band named Simple Plan. Later 1999, Comeau reacquainted with Bouvier in one of Sugar Ray’s concert and then left the band Reset and joined Simple Plan. Desrosiers replaced Bouvier position in Reset, but six months later he also left Reset and joined Simple Plan. The band’s name Simple Plan was controversial too, some of the band members said that the group was their simple plan to excuse themselves from working in various fast food restaurants. And some members said the name was from a 1998 novel and film.
In 2002, “No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls” was released as the band’s first debut studio album. Four of their singles became a big hit: “Addicted”, “I’m Just a Kid”, “I’d Do Anything and most popular of all, “Perfect”. The band focused on producing pop-punk music. And to promote their album, they conducted over three hundred shows and performed in a sold out concert in Japan. The band appeared in a comedy film Punk Rock Holocaust. The band grabbed the opportunity to open the concert of Avril Lavigne, Green Day and Good Charlotte. Over the year, the band was able to sell over one million copies of their first album and as the release of the album continues throughout 2013, they sold over four million copies all over the world.
In 2004, “Still Not Getting Any…” was released as their second album. Their hit maker singles were “Untitled (How Could This Happen To Me)” and “Welcome to My Life”. Even if they had good success in their first album, the band still does not receive great reviews. That is why they are inspired to name their album “Still Not Getting Any.”
In 2006, the “When I’m Gone” single was released with their producer Dave Fortman. The single reached the twenty sixth spot in UK Charts. And on 2008, they released their self-titled album.
In 2011, they released “Get Your Heart On!” album with the hit single “Jet Lag.”
Since the year of 2003, the band received nominations and won awards from different music awarding bodies.
