Simple Plan Share Life-Affirming "I Don't Want To Be Sad"

Simple Plan are back, y'all! They blew our minds at one of the final dates of the 2015 Warped Tour, then again at the second annual Alternative Press Music Awards. A few weeks passed and they dropped "Boom" from their upcoming fifth full-length. It's pretty obvious that their love of pop melody and ear-worm hooks never left 'em. 

Today our fave Canadians have shared a new track (and a new sound!) in the life-affirming, "I Don't Want To Be Sad."

The song documents an emotion the guys know all too well: Depression (I mean, come on, who could forget "Perfect"?) "I Don't Want To Be Sad" carries on in that tradition but ends on a high note. Like all mood disorders, there's a way out.

Listen to it above, then revisit our exclusive interview with the guys from earlier this year.
