After 27 years, Sum 41 are calling it quits. In a statement posted to their social media accounts, the group shared their love and gratitude for their dedicated fanbase.
They revealed that following the release of what will be their eighth studio album Heaven :x: Hell and a worldwide headlining tour to celebrate the release, that they will be through. You can read their full statement below.
“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 for each of us.
Thank you for the last 27 years of Sum 41.”
The group released their debut album All Killer No Filler, on May 8, 2001. Today, May 8, 2023, marks the 22nd anniversary of the platinum-certified release. While there are no details on their final album release just yet, we’re confident it will be a monumental success and a favorite amongst fans.
