Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEEN WAITING FOR SO LONG... The band first mentioned a “photobook” around 2005 when they already had two albums out and thousands of pictures put aside so one day they'd put them together into a photobook. They kept talking about this project but never about an official release date. After a few months after “Get Your Heart On!” was released, Simple Plan celebrated their 10th anniversary and Chuck started talking about the idea of a photobook, but in May 2012, the project was decided to become a proper book (including hundreds of photos YAY!!). Chuck announced that the book would be about more than 300 pages and would be released in November 2012, and apart from the pictures it would also include a complete written history of the band and other stuff that they have kept for the past 10 years...I CAN'T HANDLE MY EXCITEMENT! THIS BAND HAS BECOME MY INSPIRATION AND LIFE. SO PROUD OF EVERYTHING THEY HAVE ACHIEVED!
