This is it. You all have done your waiting. 6 years after the release of ‘Taking One For The Team’, Simple Plan’s finally back with a new full-length studio album – the 6th in their catalogue, ‘Harder Than It Looks’. Starting today, the record is finally out for everyone to enjoy and is available for purchase at various retailers as well as available for streaming!
‘Harder Than It Looks’ is Simple Plan’s first studio album as a four-piece band and also their first album that they self-produced as free agents without any record label above them.
The album comprises of 10 songs in total, four of which the fans have already heard in full before as previously released singles (and 3 of them as music videos). Even though die-hard fans may think 10 songs might seems “too little” (for the 6 year wait), after listening to the record all the way through, one will realize that these ten songs actually make the album sound very comprehensive without any unnecessary “filler” songs. And that is truly remarkable. This way each track has its own place on the album, delivering the fan everything from big rock/pop-punk tracks (Ruin My Life, Best Day Of My Life) to the final ballad (Two).
Everybody will be able to find exactly what they’re expecting from Simple Plan – big, upbeat, melodic songs with relatable lyrics, as well as a number of surprising elements on certain tracks (Anxiety, Iconic), which still fit extremely well with the rest and actually are great contenders for possible next big Simple Plan hit. Compared to the previous couple of records, the band has definitely stayed way more true to their core pop-punk hearts this time. No fillers, no “off” tracks, everything pure Simple Plan.
