Canadian pop-punk mainstays Sum 41 released their last album ’13 Voices’ back in 2016, but it looks like the band are finally working on its long-awaited follow-up.
In a short video interview shared by the band themselves on their Twitter page, frontman Deryck Whibley shares that they’re in the early stages of putting together their new album with a plan to drop something new in early 2019.

“Well, it’s a pretty cool time right now because we’re still in the writing phase and demoing phase of making new music. We’re about halfway through that, and then pretty soon we leave for Canada to do some touring.
We’re going to be doing the final Warped Tour in Toronto. It’s our one and only Warped Tour show that we’re doing this summer, and it’s in Toronto which is going to be the last one for us and it’s where it all started for us at the same time.
Then we’re going to be going off to Europe to do some summer festivals which is going to be great. We’re really excited about Reading & Leeds. Then we come home and for the rest of the year we’re just going to try and focus on trying to finish new music and have new music out for the new year sometime.
That’s pretty much it for the rest of the year for Sum 41.”
More details surrounding the band’s forthcoming seventh album will be announced as it develops.
