Sum 41 announce split; confirm final album and farewell tour

Sum 41 are set to call it a day – but they’re going to be giving fans the chance to say goodbye properly.

The Canadian pop-punk legends – who headlined the Kerrang! Tour in 2016 – announced today (May 8) that they’re going to be disbanding, following the release of final album Heaven :x: Hell and a farewell tour.

“Being in Sum 41 since 1996 brought us some of the best moments of our lives,” reads a statement from the band. “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 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 of you skumfuks on the road and are excited for what the future will bring for each of us.”

Farewell, you legends!
