After 27 years making incredible music, Sum 41 has announced future plans to disband following Heaven x Hell's release and promotional world tour
Forged in the year 1996, the band Sum 41 has been going strong for the past 27 years. Now, they've announced across their social media that the early 2000s group has plans to disband.
Rest assured to anyone concerned, the Canadian rock band will have one final hurrah before they part ways. After their upcoming album Heaven x Hell drops, for which there has yet to be a date disclosed for, Sum 41 will embark on one last headline tour around the world.
On Twitter, the band announced the decision through a press release.
"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."

Since releasing their debut album All Killer No Filler back in 2001, the band has continued to experiment with genre and sound, crossing the divide of punk and rock into rap, heavy metal, alternative metal, pop rock and more. Their most recent album, Order in Decline, came out four years ago in 2019.
Their current line-up includes Deryck Whibley as lead singer, Dave "Brownsound" Baksh on lead guitar, Jason "Cone" McCaslin on bass, Tom Thacker on guitars and keyboards, and Frank Zummo on drums and percussion.
"Sum 41 will be disbanding," the notice continues. "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," the band concluded, "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."
