New album thread: Summer 2019?
posted by TomiT14 on Thu Jan 31, 2019 9:22 am
So, I guess it's time to start talking about the upcoming 8th Sum 41 album. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone Japan, Deryck said they are near the end of the writing process, and the album could come out as early as this Summer!

The band has been surprisingly quiet about the progress of this album. All the previous albums had several studio updates or snippets posted online, whereas this time there hasn't been any updates. That being said, Blake the video guy has a new studio update ready for release, so I guess we're really close on getting new information about the process! :silly:

Todd Morse, the other half of Operation M.D., as well as the touring guitarist of The Offspring, and a member of Juliette And The Licks, H2O and many other projects, has been working on his solo material for decades. Finally, he's able to share his debut record to everyone!

Todd wanted to make the record all by himself, without any label or other middle hands. He also wanted to have genuine interaction with fans, so he encouraged people to send him an email about what they've been thinking about the music he's released. Instead of streaming services or other digital platforms, he chose to release the album by himself, straight from the artist to the listener.

Late Bloomer is a rock album with good vibes. To support Todd and purely independent music, buy his album at toddmorse.com!

You've probably been wondering why we keep posting about Todd Morse's project so much lately. Well, aside from him being a super cool dude, he reached out to us to help spread the word about his first solo record. He really likes what we've been doing for Sum 41 and all its related projects, so he asked if we could give him a helping hand. So I hope we've done our best!

What's going on with Sum 41 these days? Deryck was kind enough to answer a few questions for us. Hope you like it. :happy:

DOES THIS LOOK INFECTED?

You announced an anniversary tour for Does This Look Infected?, starting in a month. This is the second time you’ll celebrate the album by playing the record front to back. What makes this album so special to you, after all these years?

Well it’s not that it’s special to me really. In fact there’s a lot I don’t like about it. Mostly to do with sound though. But it seems to be special to the fans so that’s really what’s important. Not what I think could’ve have been better sonically.

Getting the chance to hear No Brains as a five-piece is a dream come true for all the superfans. Any plans to bring the tour to Europe this time around?

We would’ve loved to have taken this all over the world but also have to make a new record at the same time. So maybe on another anniversary we can take it to other countries.

Have you considered any anniversary tours for any other albums? Underclass Hero had its 10th birthday last year, while Chuck is turning 15 next year. ;)

We don’t really think about the anniversaries too much. They just sort of happen without us realizing until fans start mentioning it.

TRACK-BY-TRACK VIDEOS

You released two great videos taking us through the tracks of Walking Disaster and Underclass Hero with such great in-depth details. Will there be any more songs covered in the future (from Underclass or other albums)?

Yes. They take a bit of time to do. But I would like to keep doing more from all the albums.

13 VOICES

It’s been over a year since 13 Voices came out. How do you feel about it now? Are you proud what you achieved, or is there something you would’ve done differently? How do you feel about the reception it got, from reviews and fan reactions?

I feel great about it. It was the best I could’ve done coming out of the hospital and everything that I was going through. I don’t read any reviews ever, but from what I hear and saw from the crowd it did very well.

NEW ALBUM

You announced that the writing process for the new album has officially started. How far are you at the process? Do you already know in which direction the next album will take us? Any working titles you’d like to share?

All still too early to say much. I have a lot of ideas that I’m going through right now. I can say that it will definitely be a rock album. As you probably know I hate pop music and have no plans trying to “fit in” with whatever is being played on radio right now. It’s safe to say it will be a continuation of where we’re at right now. Heavy stuff, fast stuff. And probably a couple mellow things as well. But all rock music.

OTHER FUTURE PLANS

On your Sumback tour last year, the show in Paris was recorded for a DVD. You’ve told us that it would be a part of a documentary release. Can you tell us anything about that project? When would we expect to get our hands on it?

That is something that is in the works. Again it’s not always up to us and there are powers that be involved. But I can tell you we’re trying to make something more like a documentary rather than just a Live Show Dvd. And I hope it all works out.

Three years ago you performed at the APMAs with DMC, and there were talks of recording a song together. Has there been any progress with that project?

We have some music recorded already. It’s not finished and we’ve had trouble with our schedules. But hopefully it can come out some day.

What can the fans expect from 2018?

Recording and a little bit of touring. 2019 will be the big year!
