It has been 20 years since Sum 41 started their band. To celebrate, the band has announced that they’ve signed onto Los Angeles’ Hopeless Records and will soon release a new album. Their last album, 2011’s Screaming Bloody Murder had a Grammy Nominated song “Blood In My Eyes”. The new album was written, engineered, and produced by vocalist and rhythm guitarist Deryck Whibley.
Whibley commented about the signing, saying:
“It’s crazy to think that we started this band 20 years ago and so much has happened, and it all happened really fast. When I look back at everything it still feels like it’s all so recent. I think this a good thing because it still feels like there is still so much to do…which is why I am excited for a new album and to be releasing it with Hopeless Records”.
There has yet to be any news on the name of this upcoming album.
