In addition to announcing the new album, Simple Plan also released the first single "Congratulations." The song, which is paired with a video filled with polaroid photos on the band, takes Simple Plan back to its roots, per Kerrang.
"We made a classic, quintessential Simple Plan record that our fans will absolutely love and it was amazing to go back to our roots and unapologetically embrace what has made this band special to so many people: fun, catchy, honest and emotional songs that will make you feel less alone, put a smile on your face and give you hope," the band said. "We truly can't wait for the world to hear these new songs and to play them live everywhere."
