The punk band Sum 41 announces its separation after 27 years of career

Through a statement the band announced the disintegration of the band after 27 years together.

The rock band Sum 41, one of the forerunners of happy punk, a genre they represented together with Blink 182, announced their separation after a 27-year career. Sum 41 is a Canadian rock band formed in 1996.

The band is known for its pop punk style and has released several hit albums including “All Killer, No Filler”, “Does This Look Infected?” and “Chuck.” They have been nominated for various awards and have won multiple accolades, including the Juno Award for Album of the Year in 2003.

On Monday, May 8, through their social networks, the band officially announced that Sum 41 was coming to an end and they would go their separate ways.

«Being in Sum 41 since 1996 brought us some of the best moments of our lives. We will always be grateful to our fans, both old and new, who have supported us in every way.

It’s hard to articulate the love and respect we have for all of you and we wanted you to hear this from us first.

The band is currently on tour, so the announcement of their separation took their fans by surprise.

As mentioned in the statement, Sum 41 will continue to perform until the end of their dates and conclude what would be their last world tour.

They also added that they are about to release their last work as a band with a new album called “Heaven: x: Hell”.
