Simple Plan to perform in Singapore

Always on the road headlining gigs since 2002, punk superstars Simple Plan will be crossing continents this year to give Singapore a good dose of their notoriously exciting live shows on Wednesday 30 Mar 2005 at the Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Named after the Billy Bob Thornton movie, Simple Plan are a five-piece band from Montreal, Canada, comprising of high school pals Pierre Bouvier (vocals) Jeff Stinco (lead guitar), David Desrosiers (bass) Sebastien Lefebvre (guitar) and Chuck Comeau(drums).
Amongst their many accolades, Simple Plan were recently voted the Best Pop Act at the MTV Asia Awards 2005 and their success can be attributed to the band's songwriting savvy-ness, dedication to their fans and an overwhelming work ethic.
Having blazed the trail to the 'pop punk' genre with their debut album No Pads, No Helmets, ... Just Balls, the band have been touring non-stop, with a knack for singing the opinions of the underdog teen combined with genuine charm and boisterous behaviour befitting a chart-topping band.
Their Top-10 hits include up-tempo tracks "Addicted," "I'd Do Anything", "I'm Just a Kid" and the mega-ballad "Perfect."
The much anticipated second album, Still Not Getting Any... was recorded in their hometown with famed producer Bob Rock who is best known for his work with Metallica, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi and the Cult. Rock traveled to Montreal to record the band in their native surroundings, in order to stay true to their signature sound.
In Singapore, the first single "Welcome To My Life" was number one for three weeks on Perfect Ten 98.7FM and the album, "Still Not Getting Any..." has already achieved a GOLD certification.
"The record is a bit different from the first one, but it's still us," Lefebvre is quick to point out on the second album. However, although Simple Plan are open to experimenting with the formula that made them famous, their biggest concern is not letting down their fans, because they are who this album is for.
"The connection, ultimately between us and our fans, is the most important thing we have," explains Desrosiers. "They are the ones who make or break our album, not some music critic who's already made his or her mind up about us," Stinco adds. "Without them, I would probably be working a nine-to-five job that I hate."
Apart from their Jakarta and Singapore dates, Simple Plan will also headline Bangkok (March 27), Kuala Lumpur (March 29) and Manila (March 31) with fellow Canadian pop-rock artist Avril Lavigne, voted Favourite Female Artist at the recent MTV Asia Awards.
