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.

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!
