Q. This upcoming album is your first in about four years. What can fans expect from this new album?

A. “We put a lot of thought into that, because there’s that balance between keeping your legacy, keeping what people know you from, and we’re very conscious of that. We want to make sure that we don’t pull a one-eighty on our fans. So the energy, the melodic aspect of what we’ve done on the first few records, it’s still present. But at the same time, on the last record, we kind of allowed ourselves to push the boundaries of what we even limit ourselves to with as far as what the Simple Plan sound is. So there are songs that are pretty surprising, even coming from us. There are a lot of different instruments, a lot of different ideas that came in. But I think we managed to keep our identity. There’s nothing worse than a band that you hear on the radio and you’re like, ‘Why are they doing that? It’s not them.’ So I think we’ve achieved that idea of doing something new, just pushing, again, the envelope of what Simple Plan can be, but at the same time maintaining our identity. So, yes, simply put I think there’s a lot of what Simple Plan was all about — the rocking, fun, fast songs. But at the same time there’s depth and there’s different influences that are creeping in as we’re listening to new music.”

Q. It’s interesting how you say you don’t want to throw your fans a curveball, and yet a huge band like Mumford & Sons recently released an album that came completely out of left field sound-wise. What are your thoughts on that?
A. “When I first heard the song [Believe] on the radio, I was like, ‘Who’s that?’ It took me a while before the voice of the singer gave it away, before I could figure out that it was Mumford & Sons. I just thought it was a sick song. That’s where it starts for me. I started thinking about it, and I’m like, wow, that’s surprising, coming from a band that, I don’t know if they created a sound, but they brought a sound back and they were like the biggest presence in that world, I would think. It surprised me a lot.

But then I started thinking, the two last records they put out are probably some of the best songs of that genre. How can you repeat that? How can you make it better? Can you do it again? AC/DC’s done it for years. Some records are better than others and that’s just the nature of the game. But I don’t blame bands for trying new things and challenge what the essence of it is. I always knew those guys were great players and they could probably play a lot of instruments, and that’s precisely what they’re doing. They’re coming out of their comfort zone, trying some new things. I think it’s neat.

To bring it back to my band, there’s that spirit too. We think we wrote the best pop-punk record we could have written when we were doing album one and album two. But — it’s kind of funny, every time you do an interview and it’s a new record, every band says the same thing: ‘It’s our best record yet.’ Well, you really think so when you put it out, and you have to have some integrity and say, ‘Alright, it was the best pop-punk record that I could do at the time, and now what can I do different?’ Try to beat it? Well, maybe. You could probably try to do that on a couple songs, two, three, four songs. But after that, how can you stretch it further? And my band’s always been about that concept: what is Simple Plan and how far can we take it outside of its expected limits?”

Saturday
S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y NIGHT
S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y NIGHT

Ticking like a time-bomb, Waiting for the weekend
(Saturday night, Saturday night)
People throw their hands up, Higher than the ceiling
(Saturday night, Saturday night)

I can see the line up,
Running round the whole block
(Saturday night, Saturday night)
Coming through the window,
I can hear the bass drop
(Saturday night, Saturday night)

We don’t have to go,
We can stay right here.

We can go get drunk, staying up all night
Singing ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ till the morning light
We can line up shots till it all goes bad
And we’re passed out and puking in a taxi cab.

When your lying here by my side, nowhere else feels right.
I’d rather be alone with you on Saturday night

S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y NIGHT

This is gonna be a night so epic
(Saturday night, Saturday night)
You and me baby nothing but Netflix
(Saturday night, Saturday night)
We don’t have to go,
We can stay right here.

We can go get drunk, staying up all night
Singing ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ till the morning light
We can line up shots till it all goes bad
And we’re passed out and puking in a taxi cab.

When your lying here by my side, nowhere else feels right
I’d rather be alone with you on Saturday night
(Saturday night, Saturday night)

If we ever get bored, if we get restless
(Saturday night, Saturday night)
We can get dressed up, let’s get epic
S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y

We can go get drunk, staying up all night
Singing ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ till the morning light
We can line up shots till it all goes bad
And we’re passed out and puking in a taxi cab.

We’ll stop at every bar on the boulevard
Till we’ve maxed out the limits on our credit cards.
Cuz when I got you here by my side
Everything feels right,
As long as it’s me and you on Saturday night
S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y

Lyric: SPCZ
