Sum 41 Releases New Song, ‘A Death In The Family’

Sum 41 has released another single from its upcoming album, Order in Decline.

The rock band, which was formed in Ajax, released A Death in the Family on Tuesday along with a brand-new, split-screen music video that depicts the five-piece performing in the present day as well in the late 1960s.

The upbeat and fast-paced cuts of the Dale “Rage” Resteghini-directed video match the rapid fire of riffs present in the heavy-hitting tune.

Order in Decline was announced in April. It serves as Sum 41’s seventh studio album overall and the first since 2016’s 13 Voices.

Ahead of releasing the album, the band also announced a summer tour that includes a stop in Toronto.

On Aug. 8, the Canadian rock icons will play Toronto’s Echo Beach in front of nearly 5,000 fans along with up-and-coming singer-songwriter Grandson as their special guest.

The Sum 41 lineup currently consists of frontman Deryck Whibley, guitarists Dave Baksh and Tom Thacker, bassist Jason McCaslin and the latest member, drummer Frank Zummo, who joined in 2015.
