Fall tour featuring Simple Plan, State Champs and We The Kings hit Sayreville, NJ on November 4th.

This fall you do not want to miss this monster tour featuring pop punk favorites, Simple Plan, State Champs, We The Kings and Northbound.
Simple Plan and State Champs cultivated their friendship while touring together on the final cross-country Vans Warped Tour in 2018. In addition to headlining the final tour, Simple Plan also performed at the two monumental Vans Warped Tour 25th Anniversary events in Atlantic City and San Francisco last summer.
In celebration of this new friendship, Simple Plan has teamed up with tour mates in State Champs and We The Kings for the release of a brand new single. “Where I Belong,” a fun and energetic song that captures the spirit of live music. Simple Plan’s classic pop punk lyrics revolving around finding your place in life with State Champ’s new upbeat pop riffs and melodies capture the genuine nature that is early 2000’s pop punk teen angst, only in a newer light. I can’t get enough of this song, and you won’t either.
Check it out below!
[Simple Plan] states, “This song is a celebration of 3 bands coming together, collaborating and doing something unique for the pure love of music. It’s back-to-basics, in your face, full of energy and fun with heartfelt lyrics; exactly what our 3 bands love and stand-for. We wrote the Select an area to comment on song imagining ourselves playing it on stage and having our fans singing along with us at the top of their lungs. Going to shows, whether we’re playing them or just standing in the crowd, is where we belong, and we can’t wait to perform this song with State Champs and We The Kings every single night on this tour! We hope our fans will enjoy it.”
Some photos (below) capturing the night can only begin to express the energy in the room. The crowd was singing along to every word of every song throughout the night, and for good reason. The bands brought their best out on stage and made it last.
If all this talk hasn’t convinced you to catch a show yet, maybe this will.
Since 2011, $1 of every ticket sold for a Simple Plan headline concert is donated to the Simple Plan Foundation, which has donated over $2 million to various charitable causes in Canada to help young people in need.
The band continues their philanthropic initiatives on this upcoming tour, with the joint decision between Simple Plan and State Champs that
all money raised will be donated to help children affected by the ICE immigration raids in the USA.
