Simple Plan announce ‘No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls’ to get anniversary release
Canadian pop punk outfit Simple Plan have dropped the news that they will be releasing their 15th Anniversary Edition of No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls on Friday April 6, 2018.
Recently named as one of Rolling Stone’s ‘Top 50 Greatest Pop Punk Albums of All Time,’ the record will feature seven additional tracks, including two new live tracks.
The band also announced they will be heading to Australia for their Anniversary Tour in April, playing shows in Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales.
“After releasing our fifth album last year and playing more than 100 shows in over 40 countries, we felt it was important take this opportunity to look back and celebrate the amazing adventure we’ve had as a band and as friends,” the band said in the official press release.
“It felt important to do something special, something we’ve never done before to mark this landmark in our lives. This is why we wanted to do this tour.”
Tickets for the Melbourne show sold out in within the hour, so a second has been added for fans on Monday April 23.
Tickets and VIP packages are on sale now, and tour dates and track listing for the album can be found below.
