Canadian punks Sum 41 have taken a slightly different direction with their new song, ‘Never There’, an emotional ballad and the third single from their forthcoming LP, ‘Order In Decline’.
This is what the band’s frontman Deryck Whibley had to say about the song.
“I never wanted to write this song, it just kind of poured out of me. I tried to fight it at first but there was no stopping it. I could tell I was writing about my dad, who I’ve never met, and throughout my life it has always been a subject that I don’t really think about or care about. It has never really bothered me and when I started thinking about why it never bothered me, I realized it was because my mum was so great and I have such a loving relationship with her. She was so strong as a single mother for my whole life that I never needed to think about my dad.”

The band’s seventh studio album, ‘Order In Decline’, is set for release on July 19th 2019 through Hopeless Records.
