Sum 41 declares ‘Death of Pop’ with new song


With a week left until the release of their much-anticipate new album, Sum 41 has given their fans another new track from the upcoming release. On Wednesday (Sept. 28), the Canadian band released the music video for their third song off the album, “God Save Us All (Death to Pop).” The four-minute clip opens with frontman Deryck Whibley talking about how he thinks rock music has more power to unite people than pop music.

“The cool thing about playing rock music all over the world is that you can share this unity through music with other people,” Whibley’s voice over begins. “My opinion is that you only get that feeling with rock music. I don’t think you feel anything with pop.”

After the short opinion, the clip shifts to a montage of footage as the song begins to play. Unlike their previously released music videos for 13 Voices, the video seems to give the viewer the chance to see what it’s like to be at a Sum 41 show as well as behind the scenes with them. The behind-the-scene footage features them travelling all over the place including a snowy mountain, hanging out backstage at what looks to be the 2016 Vans Warped Tour, and even getting tattoos.

In addition to the behind-the-scenes footage, we get to see the newly reunited band performing at several different shows to huge crowds. Check out the clip for “God Save Us All (Death to Pop)” below.

“God Save Us All (Death to Pop)” will join “War” and “Fake My Own Death” on Sum 41’s upcoming new record, 13 Voices. 13 Voices is set to be released on Oct. 7 through Hopeless Records. In support of the upcoming record, the band will hit the road for their massive “Don’t Call it a Sum-Back” tour with Senses Fail and As It Is.

The tour will officially kick off next Tuesday, Oct. 5, at the House of Blues in Orlando. After a month on the road, the tour will wrap up on Nov. 6 at the Mayan in Los Angeles. The complete list of upcoming tour stops can be found here.
