Simple Plan Add Summer “NPNHJB” Tour Dates

Normally we aren’t fans of Mondays but we’ll let this one slide because Simple Plan announced more dates for their 15th Anniversary Tour of “No Pads No Helmets…Just Balls” Tour for the Summer!  They’re taking our friends in Patent Pending out with them for this Summer round of dates and we’re so excited to finally see PTPG’s dreams of touring with Simple Plan come true.

In case you haven’t heard of Patent Pending before, 5 years ago, the guys in PTPG wrote an open letter – song actually, to Simple Plan begging them to let them open for the Canadians on a tour or even just one show.  The guys got the chance just before the official start of the NPNHJB Tour in NYC back in March to open and they had such a blast!  The SP fans liked them too because everyone was dancing and waving their pirate hooks in the air during the guys’ set.  They even helped Corey win the Crowd Swimming Championships that night!  I think that counts as a huge success. SP thought so too because they’re taking the guys on tour officially!!

Check out the new Summer dates below and get your tickets when they go on sale on Friday, April 7th.

SecretFangirls.com Interview Seaway

If you haven’t heard of Seaway yet, you’re about to!  We first caught the band opening for Sorority Noise and Knuckle Puck almost a year ago and we’ve been hooked on their catchy pop punk tunes ever since.  Singer Ryan Locke, guitarist/vocalist Patrick Carleton, guitarist Andrew Eichinger, bassist Adam Shoji, and drummer Ken Taylor have perfected the art of crafting hook filled songs like “Slam”, “Airhead”, and “Trick (So Sweet)” that you can’t help but sing along to!  They also put on a super fun, high energy live show that is not to be missed. 

Hailing from Ontario, Canada, Seaway are currently on tour with fellow Canucks, Simple Plan in honor of the 15th Anniversary of “No Pads No Helmets…Just Balls.”  The tour officially kicked off in Florida last week and includes a stop in NYC on Saturday at Playstation Theater.  We can’t wait to hear them play their massive debut album front to back.  Catch us in the pit raging like our 13-year old selves would have wanted!

We had the chance to talk with Seaway guitarist Andrew Eichinger about what’s on their tour rider, and what to expect from the next Seaway album.  Read our interview with Andrew below!

SecretFangirls.com: You just kicked off the Simple Plan “No Pads No Helmets Just Balls” 15th Anniversary Tour for such an iconic pop punk album. What are you looking forward to most on this tour?
Andrew Eichinger: We’re really looking forward to playing in front of a ton of new people and doing our best to win them over. But it will also be very cool to see Simple Plan play that album front to back. Being from Canada, it was such a huge record for us when we were like 9/10 years old, so to be on this tour is one of those full circle moments for us and we’re super excited.

How would you describe a Seaway show in 3 words for those who haven’t seen you live before?
High Voltage Party

What are some “must haves” on your tour rider?
Nacho chips, queso and salsa. Not too spicy though lmao ;)~

Do you have any pre-concert rituals?
Not really. We’re pretty boring honestly. Usually just have a couple suds.

What artist have you or would you totally fangirl over if you met?
Shania Twain or Alanis Morissette.

The nostalgia is in full force with your album “Colour Blind” from the art to the sound.  What artists are your biggest influences as a band?
I think late 90’s / early 2000’s pop punk bands like Blink, Sum 41, New Found Glory and even Simple Plan are the obvious ones on that record because that’s the stuff that we grew up on. But we’re influenced by all kinds of different artists and bands on the pop and rock side of things that come out a little on Colour Blind and will continue to, on our next record.

You’ve been teasing photos from the studio lately, what can fans expect from a new Seaway album?
It’s hard to say right now but based on the songs we have it will be a natural progression from everything we’ve done in the past, but there will definitely be some new twists and turns in there as well.

Is there anything you’d like to say to your fans?
Shout out to the fans who are spending a little more than usual to come see us on this tour. It means a lot to us to have our fans there wildin out while we play in front of a sea of people that haven’t heard us before.

Catch Seaway on tour with Set It Off and Simple Plan on the “No Pads No Helmets…Just Balls” 15th Anniversary Tour!

Grab a copy of “Colour Blind” on iTunes or Amazon so you can sing along on tour!

Friday Five: Simple Plan Songs From NPNHJB

You will always love the music that you liked when you were 13.  This is one of the most true statements we have ever heard! Simple Plan, as bizarre as it sounds, has had a profound effect on us…well one of us anyway.  They’re the reason we picked up the guitar, the reason we wore those huge khaki shorts with tall tube socks, Vans, and Role Model clothing.  Yeah….we were super fangirls for SP, complete with an email address dedicated to Seb’s eyes!  We won’t get into that now though.  Here is our Friday Five favorite deep cuts from the Canadian band’s debut album “No Pads, No Helmets, Just Balls” which they’re currently playing in full on the 15th Anniversary Tour!

“Meet You There”  – This is one of the  songs on an album full of angsty emo teen songs. No matter where life takes us, we’ll always meet Simple Plan there.

“My Alien” – It seems like every good pop punk band need a song about aliens, space, and/or  girlfriends. SP hit all three targets.  Thy went and got the Astronaut kit so if you can provide the rocket, they’ll be with their beloved 4 leg/2 armed girlfriend again.

“You Don’t Mean Anything” – When your two favorite singers collab on a single, that’s definitely going to be your favorite song! Joel Madden from Good Charlotte lent his vocals to the third track on SP’s debut album and we’re still surprised this was never a single.

“The Worst Day Ever”  – If you thought “I’m Just A Kid” was emo, this song takes the cake for being one of the most emo songs we have ever heard.

“One Day” – The acoustic picking in this song sounds out of place with the rest of the album if you’re not looking at the big picture of early 2000s music. SP really are masters at their craft because if you just heard this song with no context or name attached, chances are you might not realize it’s the same band that wrote “I’m Just A Kid.”  This is still one of our favorite emo deep cuts, hands down!
