Review – Simple Plan

By: Amanda Hather

EP – Get Your Heart On – The Second Coming!
iTunes Link –!/id747587451
Release Date – December 3, 2013
Genre – Pop
Label – WEA International Inc.

The ‘Get Your Heart On – The Second Coming!’ is the first EP release from popular Canadian band, Simple Plan. They decided that because the period of time between their last album, ‘Get Your Heart On’, and the one that they are currently working on was so long due to extensive touring, the band would put together a seven song EP to essentially tide fans over until the new album is released.

The EP as a whole is amazing. A few of the songs stand out as exceptional to me, such as “Fire In My Heart” and “Try”. Another song on the album that is fantastic is the acoustic track, “Lucky One”.

Along with the release of the EP, the band released their music video for the second song on the album, “The Rest Of Us”. The video is similar to their video for “This Song Saved My Life” from the first ‘Get Your Heart On’ album. It is a compilation of clips from live performances, as well as more candid shots of the band. See it here:

Rating: 4.5/5

Simple Plan on social media:


I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
