The last few years have been tough for Deryck Whibley. The crash’n’burn marriage with Avril. The near-death experience caused by too much alcohol and partying. The re-occurring bad back. Line-up changes. These are things that would fell most bands.
But Deryck and Sum 41 are back (and so is founding guitarist Dave Brownsound.) The new album–number six–will be out October 6. The first single from 13 Voices could have come from Chuck–a good thing, if you ask me.
