Sum 41 announce “Don’t Call It a Sum-Back Tour” with Senses Fail and As It Is

Canadian pop-punk veterans Sum 41 have announced they will embark on the “Don’t Call It a Sum-Back Tour” this fall, with support from Senses Fail and As It Is. The tour will kick off in Orlando, Florida two days before the release of the band’s new album 13 Voices, and will come to a close in Los Angeles on November 6th.

The dates and locations are below.

13 Voices is set to release on October 7th through Hopeless Records, serving as a follow-up to 2011’s Screaming Bloody Murder. It will also be the band’s first record since 2004’s Chuck to feature Dave “Brownsound” Baksh on guitar.



DS Photo Gallery: Warped Tour comes to Hartford (Less Than Jake, Sum 41, The Interrupters and more)

It’s worth mentioning that if you’re reading this (hi dad!), understand that this is the second story that I wrote up that tried to capture all that is the 2016 edition of the Vans Warped Tour. It’s also worth mentioning that this version is much, much shorter than the original. You’re welcome. Seriously.

You see, if you’re of a certain age bracket (like, I don’t know, mid-30s) the continued existence of the traveling punk rock summer camp that is the Vans Warped Tour has obviously been a hot button topic in certain corners (read as: message boards and comment sections) of the punk community at large. We all can reminisce about years gone by, or compare which pre-2000 lineup was best, or patronizingly congratulate ourselves for even recognizing the names of any of the bands on the roster in the last handful of years.

The 2016 lineup is, as you’re probably aware, the best in recent memory, thanks in no small part to the fact that it draws from a handful of the bands that made it all that some of us remember being “back in the day.” And so I initially had a whole article (I hate, HATE, to use the word “thinkpiece”) written extolling the virtues of Kevin Lyman and company for helping the pendulum swing back toward something resembling Warped Tour normalcy. But then I was reminded of a quote from a wise old man that I always picture to be George Carlin but apparently, according to the internet, was actually “Author Unknown” and thus may not have actually been wise or old or male at all, “if something goes without saying, let it.” As such, I deleted the first story, and this is what you get as a result.

So anyway, the Vans Warped Tour rolled into Hartford on a thankfully warm but not blisteringly hot Sunday in July and…you know what…you really don’t care about all that stuff, do you? It’s the Warped Tour; you know this year’s lineup, you know how the individual set times get shuffled on a daily basis, you know there’s going to be a handful of bands you want to see, and handful of bands you want to avoid, and a whole bunch of people you’ve never heard of before and will most likely never hear again. For yours truly, the “who I have to see” list was dictated by a mix of nostalgia and recent fandom. From column A? New Found Glory, Less Than Jake and Sum 41. Column B, meanwhile, was represented by The Interrupters, Teenage Bottlerocket, and Masked Intruder. I could have (and, as it turns actually have) lived without seeing anybody else (sorry Motionless In White…), and as fate would have it, the schedule broke perfectly. NFG and LTJ played the same stage an hour apart. TBR and The Interrupters played neighboring stages back-to-back. Sum 41 played a set that wasn’t really in conflict with anybody, and Masked Intruder closed out one of the amphitheater stages. Perfect timing, really.

 

Say what you will, and there is certainly plenty you could say, about the Warped Tour (and, more specifically, about how you wish last year’s Lyman-produced It’s Not Dead Fest would become a nationally touring entity), but the crowd response at the Hartford stop and, we’re led to believe at a lot of other stops, indicates that it’s not just a select few old guys that miss the days of the skate punk and ska-core Warped lineups of yesteryear, and that there’s room for even more of the old guard at the table in the years to come.

Now if you’ll excuse us, get off our lawn. And check out our photo gallery of the six bands mentioned above down below.

Celebrating their 20th anniversary, Canadian pop-punk legends Sum 41 have announced their signing to Los Angeles’ Hopeless Records. This will mark the band’s first album in five years, following up 2011’s Screaming Bloody Murder, which featured the Grammy Nominated song “Blood In My Eyes.” The upcoming album was written, engineered and produced by frontman Deryck Whibley.

On the signing, Whibley says,

“It’s crazy to think that we started this band 20 years ago and so much has happened, and it all happened really fast. When I look back at everything it still feels like it’s all so recent. I think this a good thing because it still feels like there is still so much to do…which is why I am excited for a new album and to be releasing it with Hopeless Records.”

Averaging more than 300 live performances per year, Sum 41 will hit the road this summer, making their way across the US as part of the 2016 Warped Tour. The tour will kick off on June 22nd in Anchorage, AK and wrap on August 7th in Pomona, CA. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here.

Deryck Whibley talks about new Sum 41 album, recovery and the music industry

Sum 41 vocalist and guitarist Deryck Whibley recently spoke to Fuse about his recovery process, touring, record labels, and the band’s long-awaited new album, which will be their first since 2011’s Screaming Bloody Murder. Here’s an excerpt from the interview:

“The difference is that you don’t have people to argue with as much. On our last record [2011’s Screaming Bloody Murder], being on a major label in a time where most music is just pop when I want to make a rock record, you have people to argue with about why they think you should be making a pop record, ruining your career, trying to convince you of that. I have to say, ‘No, wrong, and I’m going to do this anyway.’ And they say, ‘Fine, you can do that but we’re not going to put any money into it,’ and I say, ‘Okay, fine.’ It’s that kind of shit. That’s our last experience. When that last record was done, and I really love that record but it was record that was put out and didn’t have any promo because it’s a rock record. We said, ‘Can you just let us f—-g go at this point?’ So we got off the label and we’re in this position and it’s been great.”

The new album, which is said to be almost finished, will be the band’s first album with Dave “Brownsound” Baksh on guitar since 2004’s Chuck, and their first release with Darrin Pfeiffer from Goldfinger on drums. Sum 41 recently announced they will be headlining the “Kerrang Tour”.



Deryck Whibley says new Sum 41 album is almost finished

After teasing two new songs last weekSum 41 vocalist and guitarist Deryck Whibley revealed on the band’s Facebook page that they are almost finished recording their long-awaited new album, which will be their first since 2011’s Screaming Bloody Murder. He writes:

“as the year comes to an end, i can honestly say that 2015 has been one of the best years of my life. it has been a year of accomplishments. learning to walk again and getting back on stage were some of the hardest things that i’ve ever had to do. getting my life back on track and my health in order, while at the same time making a new Sum 41 album, almost seemed impossible this time last year, but now the record is almost done and i feel stronger and better than ever. the band is sounding bigger and better as a 5-piece, and it’s so great to have dave ‘brown sound’ back again after almost 10 years.

the Alternative Press awards performance with DMC was one of the best experiences in our career and the shows in North and South America were all amazing. it’s hard to believe that 2016 is going to be an even bigger year – i can’t wait! thanks for all the love and support and we’ll see you all in the new year!

– deryck”

The new album will be the band’s first album with Dave “Brownsound” Baksh on guitar since 2004’s Chuck, and their first release with Darrin Pfeiffer from Goldfinger on drums.

“It definitely feels like that. And it just feels really good. [It feels] right, that’s what the word for me is. It feels right, because it happened naturally. There were no meetings about “How should we do this? What would we do on the next record? What’s going to be different about us?” It was just like, “Okay, this is happening. These opportunities are presenting themselves.” Either you can roll with it, or not. And it just felt too good to not.”

Sum 41 launched a crowdfunding campaign to support the release of a follow-up to 2011’s Screaming Bloody Murder last month. It will be the band’s first album with Brownsound on guitar since 2004’s Chuck, and their first release with Darrin Pfeiffer on drums.
