By funding the project via PledgeMusic, Sum 41 vocalist, Deryck Whibley released news about the band’s upcoming fourth album via an interview with Fuse. By being the first album in 5 years to be released and with Whibley’s battles with overcoming alcoholism, this release is a big one for Sum 41.
Within the interview, Whibley mentioned that the album was coming together which is great news to all the loyal fans who have pledged and donated money to help fund the project, and how the band feels free to work without a record label.
Whibley stated, “We’re on the last home-stretch of the record. It’s getting there. It’s been about a year – since we started working on it. There have been some months off because we had to do shows, some things here and there. If I had to add it all up, it’s been eight months over the course of the last year.”
Sum 41 drummer, Frank Zummo recently gave an update about the album via ArtisanNews. All in all, the band seems pretty excited to promote the new album and be back in the studio making music.
Sum 41 are making a comeback and from the sounds of it, it will be a good one.
