The Canadian punk-pop band is calling it quits after 27 years

Sum 41 breaking up? Say it isn’t so. It’s the end of an era, at least in the punk-pop musical genre. Canadian rockers Sum 41 have announced they will call it quits after their upcoming tour.

The outfit announced the news via social media on Monday (May 8). The five-piece band brings together longtime members Deryck Whibley, Dave Baksh, Jason “Cone” McCaslin, Tom Thacker and Frank Zummo.

“Being in Sum 41 since 1996 brought us some of the best moments of our lives,” the band said in their collective statement. “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 it from us first.”

They, they broke the big news, writing, “Sum 41 will be disbanding. We will still be finishing all of our current upcoming tour dates this year, and we are looking forward to releasing our final album Heaven :x: Hell, along with a final worldwide headling tour to celebrate.”

Sun 41 first got together in 1996 and released their first EP, “Half Hour of Power,” in 2000 via Island Records. Then, their big moment struck. Sum 41 released their debut full-length album, “All Killer No Filler,” in 2001. The album was a major success in rock, alternative and pop, with its debut single, “Fat Lip”, hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. It’s still the band’s most popular song and a regular on rock and alternative radio. Following “Fat Lip,” Sum 41 also struck gold with the singles “In Too Deep” and “Motivation” off that same set.

Sum 41 concluded the message stating, “For now, we look forward to seeing all of you skumf***s on the road and are excited for what the future will bring for each of us. Thank you for the last 27 years of Sum 41.
