Canadian punks Sum 41 have announced they will be splitting up after 27 years together.
In a statement posted on social media, the band stated they will be releasing a new album titled ‘Heaven x Hell’ later this year with a worldwide tour to follow.
Sum 41‘s statement read:
“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 are looking forward to releasing our final album Heaven :x: Hell, along with a final worldwide headling tour to celebrate. Details will be announced as soon as we have them.”
“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.”
Coincidentally, today marks 22 years since Sum 41 released their debut full-length, ‘All Killer, No Filler’.
