NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 4, 2011) - Atlantic recording group Simple Plan has unveiled details of their highly anticipated album, "GET YOUR HEART ON!," due in stores and online June 21st. First single "Jet Lag" features guest vocals from global superstar Natasha Bedingfield and is available at all DSPs. The track's companion video will premiere today on the Montreal-based quintet's official website, www.SimplePlan.com.

Simple Plan's first new release in over two years, "GET YOUR HEART ON!" was produced by Brian Howes (Boys Like Girls, Skillet, Hinder), and finds the multiplatinum Montreal-based quintet accompanied by an all-star lineup of special guests, including All Time Low's Alex Gaskarth, Somali/Canadian rapper K'Naan, and Rivers Cuomo, who co-wrote and performs on the album's infectious song, "Can't Keep My Hands Off You." The track made its premiere on Entertainment Weekly's companion website last month, and is featured in the just-released Walt Disney Pictures film, Prom. "GET YOUR HEART ON!" is now available for pre-order with a number of premium packages for fans to choose from. Please visit www.SimplePlan.com for more details.

Always exhilarating live performers, Simple Plan will celebrate the release of "GET YOUR HEART ON!" with a special album release concert at New York City's Gramercy Theatre on June 21st. Following the album release, the quintet will perform as a featured artist at this year's Vans Warped Tour. The dates kick off June 24th at Dallas' Gexa Energy Pavilion and then continue through late July (see below itinerary). For full details and ticket information, please visit http://vanswarpedtour.com. Before embarking on Vans Warped Tour, Simple Plan will hit Europe for a slate of performances in early June, including multiple festivals and sold-out headlining dates in Paris, London and Hamburg (see below itinerary).

Simple Plan has earned widespread acclaim and a global fan following for their inventive, genre-defying blend of classic punk energy and modern pop sonics. Since coming together nearly a decade ago, the Montreal-based combo has achieved worldwide sales in excess of 7 million, with releases including 2002's RIAA 2x-platinum debut, "NO PADS, NO HELMETS...JUST BALLS," 2004's platinum-certified follow-up, "STILL NOT GETTING ANY," and 2005's "MTV HARD ROCK LIVE."

The band's most recent album, 2008's "SIMPLE PLAN," proved an international blockbuster upon its release, reaching the No. 1 spot on the iTunes Store's "Top Pop Albums" chart while also scoring top 3 successes in Mexico, Brazil, Japan, and the band's native Canada. Furthermore, the album premiered in the top 10 in such far-away lands as Hong Kong, Sweden, Austria, Switzerland, Australia, and Germany, with top 20 debuts in Spain, Finland, and France.
