Sum 41 Are Calling It Quits

Sum 41 are breaking up. The Ontario pop-punk staples, who rose to fame via their rap-infused TRL favorite “Fat Lip” in 2001, shared a message on their social channels today announcing that they will be disbanding after releasing and touring behind their upcoming double album Heaven :x: Hell.

Here’s the full message:

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 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 you skumfuks on the road and are excited for whatever the future will bring for each of us.

Thank you for the last 27 years of Sum 41.

The Heaven :x: Hell album contains one disc of pop-punk and one disc of metal. No release date has been announced yet, but frontman Deryck Whibley discussed the album with Rolling Stone earlier this year. Check out Sum 41’s upcoming tour dates here.
