DS News: Sum 41 breaking up

Canadian pop-punk veterans Sum 41 have announced they will be breaking up. The band’s 27 year run will come to an end following the release of their final album Heaven :x: Hell, and upcoming European and North American tour dates. They made the announcement today, posting this statement on social media:

“Being in Sum 41 since 1996 brought us some of the best moments of our lives. We are forever grateful to our fans both old and new, who have supported us in every way. It is hard to articulate the love and respect we have for all of you and we wanted you to hear this from us first.

Sum 41 will be disbanding. We will still be finishing all of our current upcoming tour dates this year, and we’re looking forward to releasing our final album “Heaven :x: Hell,” along with a final worldwide headlining tour to celebrate. Details will be announced as soon as we have them.

For now, we look forward to seeing all of you skumfuks on the road and are excited for what the future will bring to each of us.

Thank you for the last 27 years of Sum 41.”

Sum 41 rose to prominence in the early 2000’s with the release of their debut album All Killer No Filler. The news of their breakup comes as a surprise, as they’ve been touring extensively in recent years, and have released two new albums since guitarist Dave “Brownsound” Baksh rejoined the band in 2015.

The band’s final album Heaven :x: Hell has been teased as a Double LP with a half pop-punk / half metal-tinged punk rock tracklist. It will be the band’s eighth studio album, following 2019’s Order in Decline. We’ll keep you posted as more details are revealed.
