After being hailed the headliners of the Kerrang Tour 2016 and announcing the return of guitarist Dave Baksh, Sum 41 singer Deryck Whibley has announced that more big things are to be expected of the pop punk heroes this year. A new album – the follow up to their 2011 release ‘Screaming Bloody Murder’, is almost finished, and you can read a statement from the frontman below:
‘As the year comes to an end, I can honestly say that 2015 has been one of the best years of my life. It has been a year of accomplishments. Learning to walk again and getting back on stage were some of the hardest things that i’ve ever had to do. Getting my life back on track and my health in order, while at the same time making a new Sum 41 album, almost seemed impossible this time last year, but now the record is almost done and i feel stronger and better than ever. The band is sounding bigger and better as a 5-piece, and it’s so great to have Dave ‘brown sound’ back again after almost 10 years’.
More details of the record are expected to drop in the coming weeks.
