Head on over to Alter The Press to check out a recent interview they did with Chuck Comeau of Simple Plan. They discuss the band's new book, take a nostalgic look back to the story of the band's origins and much more.
From The Interview It just felt like it was the right time. After ten years since the first album came out ["No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls"] it was good timing. I was so happy we were able to put it out when the band is still current and doing well. This wasn't like when a band puts out a book ten years after they had their biggest hit when their career is going down the train.

Boysetsfire have announced some line-up changes. They have also begun writing new material and are preparing to tour. Read their statement below.
StatementBoySetsFire has been a band for nearly two decades. In that time we have played hundreds of shows to anyone that would watch us, from basements to festival audiences. We lived through the terror of rap-rock, the tyranny of nu-metal, and the dark days of pop-punk. We were around before the internet. Truth. We made demo tapes. We have recorded 4 LPs, EPs, CDs, and even a Cassingle. We have played Rookie over 1,000 times. We have fallen off more stages than most people have stood on. We have been signed and dropped and signed and dropped....

Ryan GardnerThis week I've pretty much strictly listened to Fall Out Boy's Folie a Deux and Northstar's Pollyanna. I also read Richard Yates' Revolutionary Road, which is a truly great book (and movie).

You can check out our interview with The Amity Affliction here. The band is currently touring in support of their brand new album, Chasing Ghosts, which hit #1 in Australia.
From The InterviewI'm pretty vehemently anti-Christian, I think it's an absolutely disgusting practice to force that on kids - I'm happy for other people if they'd like to be Christian, as long as they find their own way there. When it's being forced on you, I think it's disgusting.
