NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 30, 2011) - Atlantic recording group Simple Plan has unveiled their new song, "Can't Keep My Hands Off You." The track -- co-written and featuring guest vocals by Rivers Cuomo -- made its premiere and can be heard in its entirety at Entertainment Weekly's EW.com today (http://bit.ly/hpq9fQ). While not an official single, the song is the first full track revealed from the multi-platinum band's forthcoming studio album, and is available for purchase exclusively at the Montreal-based band's official website, www.SimplePlan.com

Simple Plan's first new music in over two years, "Can't Keep My Hands Off You," will also be featured in Walt Disney Pictures' upcoming film, Prom, which arrives in theatres nationwide on April 29th (www.disney.com/Prom). A companion music video is set for production in Los Angeles later this week, with a premiere date to be announced shortly.

As noted, "Can't Keep My Hands Off You" will also be included on the Simple Plan's eagerly awaited fourth studio album, which is slated for release on June 21st. Produced by Brian Howes (Boys Like Girls, Skillet, Hinder), the as-yet-untitled collection arrives in conjunction with the band's featured role on 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 more touring information, please visit http://vanswarpedtour.com. Further album details will be announced shortly.

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 #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.

Simple Plan is: Pierre Bouvier - vocals; Chuck Comeau - drums; David Desrosiers - bass, backing vocals; Sebastien Lefebvre - guitar, backing vocals; Jeff Stinco - lead guitar.
