Time may change a lot, but some things stay the same.
Simple Plan have released a video for their recent single 'The Antidote', and it's a beautifully sentimental one.
The song itself speaks about how that same person or same thing will always help you through adversity and darkness, and the video perfectly represents that via a look through the relationship between and boy and girl over the years.
It shows that no matter how much the world around us changes and no matter what we come up against, the things we will love will always be there to help us through.
The band had this to say about the song's themes:
"We wrote and recorded the song before the pandemic hit and in lots of ways, it has become even more relevant after everything that happened over the last 20 months. A lot of people are going through some tough times right now and the song talks about the importance of having someone or something to turn to when life gets really hard.
For a lot of our fans and for us, it’s been music. Its power to heal, comfort and be a lifeline has never been greater and more needed than now. We hope this song will hit home with our fans and help them deal with the difficult moments we’re all facing."
We spoke to vocalist Pierre Bouvier all about the track and their upcoming album plans via Video Call late last year. Catch up with it right here:
