Sum 41 has announced their plans to disband after 27 years of making music together. The band took to Instagram to break the news, expressing their gratitude to their fans and announcing their plans for a farewell tour and a final album.

“Being in Sum 41 since 1996 brought us some of the best moments of our lives. We are forever grateful to our fans both old and new, who have supported us in every way. It is hard to articulate the love and respect we have for all of you and we wanted you to hear this from us first,” the band wrote in a statement.

Despite their decision to disband, Sum 41 has promised to fulfill all of their upcoming tour dates this year and will release their final album, “Heaven and Hell”. They have also stated that they will embark on a final worldwide headlining tour to celebrate their music and say goodbye to their fans.

“Details will be announced as soon as we have them,” the statement reads.

Sum 41, which consists of Deryck Whibley, Dave Baksh, Jason “Cone” McCaslin, Tom Thacker, and Frank Zummo, has been making music together for over two decades. The band’s music career began in 1996 under the name Kaspir before they signed an international record deal with Island Records in 1999. In 2000, they released their first EP, Half Hour of Power, which showcased their punk rock style.

Sum 41’s mainstream success grew with the release of their 2001 debut album, All Killer No Filler. The album featured the hit single “Fat Lip,” which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart.

While the band’s decision to disband may come as a shock to their fans, Sum 41 has promised to make the most of their final tour and album. They concluded their statement by thanking their fans for their unwavering support over the years.

“For now, we look forward to seeing all of you skumfuks on the road and are excited for what the future will bring for each of us. Thank you for the last 27 years of Sum 41,” the band said.
