Sum 41's 7th studio album will be called 13 Voices, and it will be out on October 7th!

Here's what Deryck has to say about the new album:

Deryck wrote:I am really excited to be releasing an album after everything I've been through recently. This new music represents the journey I've been on throughout the process of making this record. I had to fall in order to rise, and nothing feels better than to have something you love that you had to really fight for. I can honestly say that ‪#‎13Voices‬ saved my life and I cannot wait to share it with all of you.


And here's the track list:

1. A Murder Of Crows (You're All Dead To Me)
2. Goddamn I'm Dead Again
3. Fake My Own Death
4. Breaking The Chain
5. There Will Be Blood
6. 13 Voices
7. War
8. God Save Us All (Death To POP)
9. The Fall And The Rise
10. Twisted By Design


13 Voices will be released on October 7th through Hopeless Records.

On behalf of the TNS staff, our heart goes out to everyone affected by these devastating news in Paris.

We have learned that a long time Sum 41 crew member, merch guy "Handsome" Nick Alexander, was working at the Bataclan concert hall during yesterday's attacks. The status of the crew members is still unknown, but we will post an update as soon as we hear something new.

Sum 41 enters studio!

As the newest PledgeMusic update states, Sum 41 has entered the studio!

Like we know from the past albums, the first stage is to record the drums. Deryck and Frank have been recording the drum tracks past week, and there's a video update coming along later this week.

Last update we had about the album process was that there were about 6 songs written. Question is, will they record the songs as they come along (unlike previous times, when they entered the studio with an almost complete album), or has Deryck come up with more songs that we didn't know of?

I guess Deryck and/or the upcoming video update will give us more clues. :glad:

Check out the pictures posted from the studio at PledgeMusic.com!

If you look closely, you can find a new (working) song title to add to the list!

The previously mentioned are:
- Goddamn, I'm Dead Again
- 13 Voices
- Take It To The Grave

The snippets we've got so far:

Aug. 22nd 2014
Sep. 8th 2014
Dec. 15th 2014
Mar. 20th 2015
Dec. 25th 2015

Key Percussion Interview with Cone
posted by Jeremy Kill on Sat Aug 01, 2015 2:44 am
Here's a quick interview Cone has done with Key Percussion.

http://www.keypercussion.com/#!sum-41/c10m1

Near the end of the interview we get small bits of information on the upcoming Sum 41 album. For those that have been keeping up to date this will not be that new to you.

Cone hints at the tone of the new album:
"This one will be pretty aggressive, hard rocking and in your face. Awesome riffs, catchy melodies, and fast beats. It's Sum 41."


He mentions two possible titles of songs, although it's likely they are just working titles. One of them you'll recognize if you managed to read the Noisey interview with Deryck.
"There's songs like 'Nightmare' and 'Goddamn I'm Dead Again'. I like those titles, but totally not sure they will be the final titles yet."
Dave Brownsound Returns to Sum 41 for APMAs
posted by Jeremy Kill on Thu Jul 23, 2015 2:47 am
In case you missed the Alternative Press Music Awards on Wednesday you can catch Sum 41's energetic performance here:



There is no doubting the overwhelming feelings this performance brings, especially when Dave Brownsound takes the stage to play the solo to In Too Deep.

After the show Dave posts an Instagram photo stating "Yes yes y'all I'm back." It is unclear if he means he was back to play that show in particular or back in the band officially.

Regardless, the show brought much nostalgia and happiness to Sum 41 fans.

Sum 41 frontman Whibley commented, “Playing live is the heart and soul for us. It's our chance to connect face to face with our fans, and I'm glad that we get to share our first experience back onstage again at the APMAs.

Open Your Eyes (Alternate Version)
posted by TomiT14 on Mon Oct 06, 2014 9:58 pm
Deryck has released an alternate version of Open Your Eyes on his website!

(Seems like it doesn't work for me on Firefox, but Chrome is good to go!)

I can see why the solo changed. This solo doesn't have the same vibe as the rest of the song.
Also funny how Deryck says he has a pile of unreleased stuff, yet when I asked him about it a while ago he said he doesn't have much of them left anymore. Luckily he proved it otherwise! :glad:
