After months of promising fans that more information about their upcoming album would be on the horizon, Simple Plan has now come through on that promise. On Monday (Nov. 30), the Canadian band took to social media to announce the title of their fifth studio album. The impending record will be titled Taking One for the Team and is scheduled to be released on Feb. 19, 2016.
In a post on Twitter, they disclose that they has been working on Taking One for the Team for about two years, hence the endless teasing on their social media accounts. “We have been working on these new songs for almost two years now and we cannot wait to share them with you.” In the same post, they admit that they feel that this album might be their best out of all the records they have released. “We all feel like this is our best album yet and there’s nothing better than knowing that in a few months, you will be able to hear the final results.”
In addition to the title of the album, the band also announced plans to hit the road in 2016. The tour will be titled the “Taking One for the Team” World Tour and will begin in Europe. While only the European dates, which will begin in February 2016, have been confirmed, the band has assured fans that more tour announcements will be made within the next couple of months.

Previously, Simple Plan debuted several songs including “Saturday,” “BOOM,” “I Don’t Wanna Be Sad,” and “I Don’t Wanna Go to Bed.” While we don’t know for sure, we can only assume all four tracks will be featured on the upcoming album.
