Sum 41 Returns With New Song “Landmines”
Canadian rock band Sum 41, consisting of Deryck Whibley (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Dave Brownsound (guitar), Cone McCaslin (bass), Tom Thacker (guitar) and Frank Zummo (drums), returned with a new song “Landmines” on September 27, 2023.
The song is the first single off of their upcoming double album “Heaven :x: Hell”, which is also their final album.
Also, the track is the first single under their new label Rise Records.
It was written and produced by Deryck Whibley, with production by Mike Green.
The accompanying music video was directed by John Asher.
“When I wrote 'Landmines' I had no intention of writing an old school 'pop punk' song,” the band frontman Deryck Whibley said of the song in a statement. “It just came out really quickly and I knew right away that this song felt special to me.”
- Back in may, the band announced they were to go their separate ways following a final run of tour dates.
The band said, “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'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. Thank you for the last 27 years of Sum 41. SUM41”
Earlier this month, Deryck Whibley was admitted to hospital with a pneumonia infection. Currently, he has been discharged.
He shared, “Although I'm not out of the woods yet and have been told to be prepared for a bit of roller coaster sickness over the next couple of weeks, I'm staying positive and doing my best to get through all of this.”
