Sum 41 Have Announced They Are Breaking Up

Pop punk legends Sum 41 are calling it a day.

After 27 years together, the band announced on social media today (May 8) that they will officially disband following the upcoming release of new double album ‘Heaven x Hell’ and a worldwide tour.

They said “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.”

The band have promised that further details on their final tour dates will be announced soon alongside the album’s release date.

They conclude the statement saying “We look forward to seeing all of you skumfucks 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 news arrives as their breakthrough album ‘All Killer, No Filler’ turns 22 years old. The record featured singles ‘In Too Deep’ and ‘Fat Lip’ and has been certified 2x Platinum in the UK.

Sum 41 are set to appear at When We Were Young Festival in Las Vegas this October and will tour the US alongside The Offspring and Simple Plan.
