Yes.

Royalties, sales and airplay don't mean shit these days, bands thrive off live shows and Sum 41 happens to play sold out shows a majority of the time they play shows.


Do you know how much their last album has sold to this day?

From the last information I have the band is currently without a label. What does that mean for the production and distribution of a new album?

Yeah, even Metallica said they have to be on tour constantly otherwise they won't get enough money for a living. (or something along these lines)

Not to mention that they're pretty much a novelty act now. What I mean by that is the majority people are only there to see them out of nostalgia and tend to only want to hear the "hits". It sucks, but Sum 41 knows this and thats why they played ZERO new songs on their opening dates with Billy Talent last year. It's they only way they will survive now.

That's because they are constantly losing money making shitty albums, retarded movies, asinine festivals ect. If they wrote good songs, recorded them and straight up toured, they ( READ; LARS) wouldn't have anything to complain about -though I'm confident they could find something. Even with all their failed endeavours, they make MILLIONS on the sales and royalties of their old/good stuff.

This modern rock station in my city plays Sum 41 pretty much every day. The only problem is that it's only Fat Lip or In Too Deep. Sometimes Still Waiting. Heh.


Sounds like 102.1 The Edge that's here in Toronto. They play Sum 41 often but as you said, it's basically Fat Lip, Still Waiting, In Too Deep, PIeces, We're All to Blame. And repeat.

Last month, I did however hear Fat Lip play through the halls of my school that's run by the colleges radio station (101.5 The Hawk, Mohawk College, where Sum 41 have played live before!) Needless to say, I pretty much got a little too excited hearing that.

I think they sold 36.000 copies in the U.S.

As for the label part, they need to sort that out before recording and touring as the label funds those activities.

I don't know about that. Didn't Blink-182 release an album with no help after they got back together? (I could be mistaken on that...)

I don't know but I think it depends on if you need to sell physical copies of your album because if you just stayed digital it's a lot easier. Or they could finance that with their own money.

Wikipedia says 97.000 copies in US until October 2012. But I'm not sure if it's trustworthy source. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screaming_Bloody_Murder

Wikipedia is the most trustworthy source you can come by. I never question it.
This is Mark Allen Hoppus. He likes long walks on the beach. This, this is travis barker. He likes to be read poetry just before sunset. And me, I like to stick small pieces of furniture up my butt.

Tom:Yea than he starts touching me and i think thats masturbation
Some people think were idiots or perverts dont argue were both.

I agree with you, Wikipedia is not reliable. I wouldn't read the information there xD
