In a surprising announcement on Monday, Canadian rock band Sum 41 revealed that they will be calling it quits after the release of their final album later this year. The band, made up of Deryck Whibley, Dave ‘Brownsound’ Baksh, Jason ‘Cone’ McCaslin, Tom Thacker, and Frank Zummo, issued a joint statement expressing their gratitude to fans for their support over the years.
“Being in Sum 41 since 1996 brought us some of the best moments in our lives. We are forever grateful to our fans both old and new, who have supported us in any 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 statement read. “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.”
