Sum 41 announced their disbandment on Monday (May 8). The Deryck Whibley-led pop-punkers with a metal edge have been together since 1996. Before they break up for good, however, they will complete their scheduled tour dates for 2023, the band explained.
They will also release a final album before the breakup, Sum 41 said.
“Being in Sum 41 since 1996 brought us some of the best moments of our lives,” the band said in a statement. “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.”
They continued, “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. Details will be announced as soon as we have them.”
