The end of a time! After the release of their last record, the famous Canadian pop punk band Sum 41 will go their different ways.
The band, which was led by the rocker Deryck Whibley, said they were breaking up in a message they shared on Twitter on Monday.
In their post, the group said, “Being in Sum 41 since 1996 has given us some of the best times of our lives.” “We’ll always be thankful to our old and new friends for all the ways they’ve helped us.
“It’s hard to put into words how much we love and respect all of you, and we wanted you to hear this from us first,” the message said. “Sum 41 will be disbanding. We still plan to finish all of our future tour dates this year, and we’re looking forward to putting out our last record, Heaven:x: Hell, and going on one last world tour to celebrate.
“For now, we’re looking forward to seeing all of you scumbags on the road, and we’re excited to see what the future holds for each of us,” the message said. “Thank you for making Sum 41 for the past 27 years.”
Sum 41’s first record, All Killer, No Filler, came out in 2001 and was a huge hit in the pop punk scene of the early 2000s. “Fat Lip,” “In Too Deep,” and “Motivation,” three of their most popular songs, are on the record.
Later, in 2012, their song “Blood in My Eyes,” from their 2011 record Screaming Bloody Murder, was nominated for a GRAMMY Award for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance.
Heaven:x: Hell will be the band’s eighth studio record, coming after Order in Decline, which came out in 2009.
