Sum 41, Pop-Punk Band of Early 2000s Fame, Says It Will Disband
After over two decades of touring and releasing music, Canadian pop-punk band Sum 41 has announced that they will be disbanding.
The news came as a shock to many of their fans who have been following the band's journey since their breakthrough in the early 2000s.
Sum 41 was formed in 1996 in Ajax, Ontario by lead vocalist and guitarist Deryck Whibley, lead guitarist Dave Baksh, bassist Jason "Cone" McCaslin, and drummer Steve Jocz.
In 2001, Sum 41 released their debut album, "All Killer No Filler," which was a massive commercial success.
Sum 41's success continued with the release of their follow-up album, "Does This Look Infected?," which featured the popular single "Still Waiting."
Their music evolved to include elements of metal and alternative rock, but they never strayed too far from their pop-punk roots.
Sum 41 also became known for their high-energy live shows and their willingness to engage with their fans.
They toured with bands such as Blink-182 and The Offspring, and played at major festivals such as Warped Tour and Reading and Leeds Festival.
Despite their success, Sum 41 faced some challenges over the years. In 2006, Dave Baksh left the band to pursue other projects, but he later rejoined in 2013.
