Record label & management

After their fifth studio album (Taking One For The Team) Simple Plan’s original five record deal with Atlantic Records was finished. The band released their 6th studio album ‘Harder Than It Looks’ as free agents without any record label above them. Simple Plan’s management company still remains the same.

Warner Music Group belongs to the top 3 major global record companies and was founded in 1958. Warner Music runs a large number of record labels – most notably under the Atlantic Records Group we can find Atlantic Records, the record label that Simple Plan have been signed to since the beginning of their career – since 2001. The record deal ended after the fifth studio record. Since then, Simple Plan release music on their own without a record label.
