Deryck Whibley confirms Sum 41’s new album is ‘almost done’

After releasing a couple of ‘in the studio snippets’ over Xmas, Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley has confirmed that the band’s new album is ‘almost done’.

Writing on Facebook, the frontman explains: “As the year comes to an end, I can honestly say that 2015 has been one of the best years of my life. It has been a year of accomplishments. Learning to walk again and getting back on stage were some of the hardest things that I’ve ever had to do. Getting my life back on track and my health in order, while at the same time making a new Sum 41 album, almost seemed impossible this time last year, but now the record is almost done and I feel stronger and better than ever. The band is sounding bigger and better as a 5-piece, and it’s so great to have Dave ‘Brown Sound’ back again after almost 10 years.

“The Alternative Press awards performance with DMC was one of the best experiences in our career and the shows in North and South America were all amazing. It’s hard to believe that 2016 is going to be an even bigger year – I can’t wait! Thanks for all the love and support and we’ll see you all in the new year!”

We’ve added the capital letters for him, because as everyone knows – pop punks only use lowercase. The rebels.
