After what feels like years of posting pictures and video from the making of their new album, Simple Plan have now dropped a big hint as to when their fifth studio album is set to drop and it looks to be soon(ish).
Speaking with Tribute Magazine, drummer Chuck Comeau revealed that despite not having an official release date or title (it’s being referred to as “SPAlbum5”) for the record, the group are currently aiming for a “late Summer/early Fall” release date.
“We’re still in the studio, so we’ve probably got another month of recording,” Comeau explained to the publication.
“I think we will definitely have new music out this Summer, that’s for sure. That’s the goal we’ve been working super hard towards. As far as the actual record release, we don’t have an official date yet, but I’m thinking end of Summer, early Fall is our target, so we are working every day making sure we can meet that deadline.”
The band have not been shy about updating fans on the progress of the new record. The Canadian group are constantly updating their individual Instagram profiles with images and videos from behind the scenes of the recording sessions which sometimes includes them goofing off like their ping-pong tournament.
This marks the band’s new album since 2013’s Get Your Heart On-The Second Coming! EP, the continuation to 2011’s Get Your Heart On.
