The band, which consists of frontman Deryck Whibley, lead guitarist Dave Baksh, bassist Jason McCaslin, guitarist Tom Thacker and drummer Frank Zummo, said they will continue their upcoming tour dates and release their final album, “Heaven :x: Hell.” They will also launch a final worldwide headlining tour to celebrate the release.   

Sum 41 formed in 1996 in Ajax, Ontario and went on to have commercial success in the early 2000s, with hits such as “Fat Lip,” “In Too Deep” and “Motivation.” The band was nominated for a Grammy Award for best hard rock/metal performance for “Blood in My Eyes” in 2012. They were also nominated for seven Juno Awards – Canada’s top music honor – and won three of them. 

“For now, we look forward to seeing all of you skumfuks 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,” the band said Monday.
