Poutine-munching pop punkers Sum 41 have confirmed they will be releasing a new album in 2016, with frontman Deryck Whibley taking to Facebook to address eager fans.
”As the year comes to an end, i can honestly say that 2015 has been one of the best years of my life. it has been a year of accomplishments. learning to walk again and getting back on stage were some of the hardest things that i’ve ever had to do. getting my life back on track and my health in order, while at the same time making a new Sum 41 album, almost seemed impossible this time last year, but now the record is almost done and i feel stronger and better than ever. the band is sounding bigger and better as a 5-piece, and it’s so great to have dave ‘brown sound’ back again after almost 10 years.”
The band released two videos via their Instagram last week providing a sneak peak into the new material.
The as yet untitled album is the follow up to 2011’s Screaming Bloody Murder, and will see the return of founding member and shred-lord Dave ‘Brownsound’ Baksh after he officially left the band last year citing creative differences. Sadly, the album will not feature other founding member and drummer Steve Jocz, with Frank Zummo taking over the skins and joining the band as a permanent member.
Whibley had a close call last year when he was hospitalized for alcohol abuse, with the singer having to learn how to walk again after years of heavy drinking caused numerous health problems and nearly caused his liver and kidneys to shut down. Whibley has more or less made a full recovery, explaining he’s excited to move into the next phase of his life sober and looking forward to getting back on the road with Sum 41.
