Sum 41 are back and better than ever!
The band's brand new video for "Fake My Own Death" is currently more than halfway to 1 million views (616K+), just one day after its release!
With praise from Billboard, MTV, Alternative Press, Huffington Post, Mashable, Entertainment Weekly, Loudwire, Bustle and more, "Fake My Own Death" is the first taste of the return of Sum 41 and they did it in a big way.
With their upcoming album "13 Voices", out October 7th on Hopeless Records, we see Sum 41 as an impenetrable unit putting everything they've got out into their music. The result is a dynamic, impassioned collection of melodic, guitar wielding, rock songs.
If you haven't already seen the video featuring Kim Kardashian, Bill Cosby, James Franco, Seth Rogan, Miley Cyrus, Kermit, Nyan Cat, Doge and more, check out what everyone is buzzing about below!
Directed by Marc Klasfeld, who previously worked with Sum 41 on their videos for "Fat Lip", "In Too Deep" and "The Hell Song," "Fake My Own Death" depicts the band performing on a rooftop in down-town Los Angeles, where all their worst nightmares -- including Kim Kardashian, Michael Jordan and Donald Trump -- come to attack them.
"Fake My Own Death" is the first listen off Sum 41's forthcoming new album, "13 Voices", due out October 7th via Hopeless Records. Singer Deryck Whibley shares his thoughts behind "Fake My Own Death," "I just wanted to get away from everything that I had been doing. I needed to start a new life-like faking my own death." The ten-track album marks the band's first LP in five years, following up 2011's Screaming Bloody Murder, which featured the Grammy Nominated song "Blood In My Eyes."
With the upcoming release of this album we see Sum 41 as an impenetrable unit putting everything they've got out into "13 Voices". The result is a dynamic, impassioned collection of melodic, guitar wielding, rock songs. "I can't say whether this is our best record or not, as I don't know if it is," states Whibley. "All I can say is I did the best I possibly could during the toughest period of my life".
Whibley began writing for "13 Voices" immediately following his four-month stint in the hospital. The frontman recalls, "I had to learn how to do everything again-my motor skills, learning how to play guitar again... I couldn't even walk at the time. It was really difficult, but at the same time if I didn't have a record to make, I don't think I would have recovered as quickly. Writing music gave me a purpose. I had to get better." As Whibley's health improved, so did his ability to write songs, and "13 Voices" soon began to take shape being recorded, produced and engineered by Deryck Whibley at his home in Los Angeles.
