September 29th, 2016 – Toronto, ON – Sum 41 just released one last track for fans, along with a music video today for “God Save Us All (Death To POP)” before their upcoming album release, 13 Voices out on October 7th via Hopeless Records.
The music video, directed by Blake Higgins, shows highlights of the undeniable force that is Sum 41 on stage this summer during Vans Warped Tour, their European tour dates and all things in between. These pop-punk veterans are back, and show no signs of slowing down, just in time for their upcoming headlining tour kicking off October 5th, right after performing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on October 3rd.
On recently released single and music video, “War,” Deryck Whibley states, “I feel that this song literally saved my life. I was at my absolute lowest point of what seemed like a never-ending recovery. When I was at a tipping point of falling back into drinking or staying the course of recovery, I grabbed a pencil and paper instead of a bottle and started writing. Whenever I had any thoughts of giving up, I would read these lyrics to myself over and over again. They helped remind me of what it was that I was fighting for, and that I needed to keep fighting harder. Giving up was not an option.” “War” has been added and spins at CIMX, Faction, idobi, Alt Nation, KROQ, KFMA, KFRR, KITS, and more! The new video also has over 2 million views.
Earlier this summer, Sum 41 released a music video for the leading fan track, “Fake My Own Death.” The video has over 4.3 million views, and the number is still rising. Along with the newly released “War”, this is the first look fan’s have into Sum 41’s forthcoming new album, 13 Voices. The ten-track album marks the band’s first LP in five years, following up 2011’s Screaming Bloody Murder, which featured the Grammy Nominated song “Blood In My Eyes.”
The Sum 41 fans have been coming out in overwhelming numbers to the recent live shows, with the band playing to some of the biggest crowds of their career. The band will be stopping at some record stores along the way for in-store acoustic performances and signings. Fans can purchase the deluxe version of 13 voices at HMV. They will receive a wristband to attend this exclusive event and meet the band following their live performance at HMV Underground Toronto on October 18th at 2:30pm EST. Limited Space Available.
Whibley began writing for 13 Voices immediately following his four-month stint in the hospital. The frontman recalls, “I had to learn how to do everything again-my motor skills, learning how to play guitar again… I couldn’t even walk at the time. It was really difficult, but at the same time if I didn’t have a record to make, I don’t think I would have recovered as quickly, or even at all. Writing music gave me a purpose. I had to get better.” As Whibley’s health improved, so did his ability to write songs, and 13 Voices soon began to take shape being recorded, produced and engineered by Deryck Whibley at his home in Los Angeles.
Sum 41 consists of five members including Deryck Whibley, lead guitarist/backing vocalist Dave Brownsound, co-lead guitarist/backing vocalist Tom Thacker, bassist/backing vocalist Cone McCaslin and drummer Frank Zummo.
