Simple Plan have dropped off the "Pop-Punk's Still Not Dead" tour with New Found Glory due to COVID-19 concerns, and they've been replaced by ska-punk veterans Less Than Jake on all but three dates. LTJ also won't be appearing alongside NFG at Riot Fest, which just had to make some other lineup adjustments too.
The tour -- which is being opened by Hot Mulligan and LØLØ -- includes NYC-area shows on September 29 at Starland Ballroom, September 30 at Brooklyn Steel, and October 8 at The Rooftop at Pier 17. Tickets for Starland, BK Steel, and Pier 17 are still available. If you already bought a ticket and would like a refund, ticketholders will receive an email with the option to request one. New tour poster with all dates and Simple Plan's full announcement below.
We recently included Less Than Jake's 1996 LP Losing Streak on our list of 64 Essential Ska Albums from 1964 to Present, and we've also got some LTJ vinyl in our shop, including their 2003 classic Anthem on transparent orange vinyl, three different variants of their new split with Kill Lincoln, and their b-sides comp on transparent blue vinyl.
