Since we are on the topic of Australia (David Myles is on tour there), it is fitting to announce that Montreal’s Simple Plan has released the single “Summer Paradise” Down Under and it is already at #22 on the Australian singles chart. The MV was filmed there with shots from their tour and features a segment from Somali-Canadian K’naan. “Summer Paradise” is the third single released from the band’s album Get Your Heart On. “Jet Lag”, a platinum single in Canada, was also very popular in Australia, finishing the year 2011 as the 60th most popular song there.
Simple Plan is currently on tour in Asia and having a blast. They played Hong Kong tonight. The Canadian leg of their tour kicks off on February 9th in Penticton, BC.
Whether you’re a Simple Plan fan or not – no worries, mate – you have to admit that it’s pretty cool to get a nod of approval from our fellow Commonwealth nation, eh.
