Sum 41 share their tear-jerking music video for ‘Never There’

You may want to get the tissues ready because Sum 41’s newest music video is going to make you shed some serious tears.

On Tuesday (June 18), the Canadian band unleashed the music video for “Never There,” the third single off their upcoming new album.

The four-and-a-half-minute clip begins with a kid skateboarding around town while frontman Deryck Whibley sits in a sunlit room playing the piano. The camera pans to a photograph with the kid, and two people who we can assume are his parents.

The scenery changes to the kid sitting at the kitchen table as his parents argue behind him. Instead of staying to watch the argument escalate, he walks away. The fight soon spills to the front yard where the man pushes the woman down to the ground. Like the deadbeat dad that we know the man is about to become, he bails on the woman and his son.

The viewer watches as the woman has to take on the burden of making ends, something particularly difficult when you’re waiting tables. Bills and eviction notices soon begin to arrive, forcing the mother and son duo to move into a cheap motel.

As the video progresses, we watch as their bond gets stronger through their difficult times, and as time moves on, their situation starts to get better.

We warned you that it was going to be a tearjerker. Watch the music video for “Never There” above.

“Never there” will join previously released tracks “A Death in the Family” and “Out for Blood” on Sum 41’s forthcoming seventh studio album.

Order in Decline is due out July 19 through Hopeless Records. Pre-orders are available for purchase here. All pre-orders will receive instant downloads of “Out for Blood” and “A Death in the Family.”

Order in Decline is the follow-up to 2016’s 13 Voices.

Sum 41 announced the release of their seventh studio album back in April. According to the band, the forthcoming record will be their “heaviest and most aggressive album to date, while also being their most dynamic and raw.”

Later this month, the group will join the Used, Circa Survive, and Thrice on the inaugural Rockstar Energy Drink Disrupt Festival. The 25-stop tour kicks off later this week at the Dos Equis Pavilion in Dallas.

Watch Sum 41 take a trip back to the 60s in ‘A Death in the Family’

With a few short weeks left before hitting the touring circuit once more, Sum 41 has returned with a brand new music video. On Tuesday (June 11), the Canadian band released the clip for their latest single, “A Death in the Family.”

The four-minute video begins with an old-school Hollywood countdown on the screen. Once it reaches zero, the screen changes to some kind of transmission with the word “searching” and the band’s name displaying on a black background.

The viewer soon finds themselves zooming through space, down to Earth, to the middle fo a warehouse district. The scenery rapidly changes to the inside of a building where two versions of Sum 41 appears; one from 1969 and the present incarnation of the band.

Throughout the clip, we watch as the two versions of the band perform the song in the same exact room (with a 50-year difference) while a creepy person is situated in a control room watching this. The video comes to an end with the lyric “your lies will tear us apart” appearing on the screen.

Watch the Dale Rage Resteghini-directed music video above.

“A Death in the Family” will join previously released track “Out for Blood” on Sum 41’s forthcoming album.

Order in Decline is due out July 19 through Hopeless Records. Pre-orders are available for purchase here. All pre-orders will come with instant downloads of both “Out for Blood” and “A Death in the Family.”

Order in Decline is the follow-up to 2016’s 13 Voices.

Sum 41 announced the release of their seventh studio album back in April. According to the band, the forthcoming record will be their “heaviest and most aggressive album to date, while also being their most dynamic and raw.”

Sum 41 release their first new song in three years, announce new album

After three years of being away, Sum 41 is finally giving fans some new tunes. On Wednesday (April 24), the Canadian band announced plans to release a brand new album later this summer. Titled Order in Decline, the record is due out July 19 through Hopeless Records. Pre-orders for the album are currently available here.

Order in Decline is the follow-up to 2016’s 13 Voices.

According to the band’s press statement, the upcoming record is “undoubtedly Sum 41’s heaviest and most aggressive album to date, while also being their most dynamic and raw.”

“The last thing I wanted to do was write a social or political protest record, and Order in Decline is not that,” vocalist Deryck Whibley explains. “It’s also very hard not to have feelings about everything that’s going on in the world.”

In conjunction with the new record’s announcement, the act also released the music video for its lead single, “Out for Blood.”

Last month, Sum 41 announced plans to embark on an intimate club tour this spring. The No Personal Space tour includes stops in San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, Fort Lauderdale, New Orleans, Nashville, Boston, and more. The forthcoming outing begins on April 27 at the Utah State Fairpark in Salt Lake City and concludes a month later on May 26 at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago.

Sum 41 brings the party to the skate park in new video

It’s been over seven months since Sum 41 released any new music videos for their brand new tunes. On Wednesday (May 3), things changed when the Canadian band unleashed their fan-centric music video for “Goddamn I’m Dead Again.” The music video kicks off with the band, more specifically frontman Deryck Whibley, sending out a mass message to fans on Facebook asking them to show up and be part of their brand new music video. “Bail on your Sunday plans and come spend the day with us,” reads the post.

Once the message disappears from the screen, we see the band arrive at what looks to be a depleted skate park with skate ramps full of graffiti and dead plants; the perfect place for a party. In between shots of the band getting ready, we see the Skumfuks (Sum 41 fans) arrive, ready for a good time. Headbanging, moshing, crowdsurfing, and the band performing make up the almost four-minute video. If the clip looks familiar, it’s because according to the band the new video is supposed to be reminiscent of their music videos for “In Too Deep” and “Fat Lip.”

“We’re very excited to release this new video for ‘Goddamn I’m Dead Again.’  This one is for the fans and by the fans,” said Whibley in a statement that accompanied the new clip. “What you are seeing are dedicated Sum 41 super fans, not one extra and I love that. Thank you all for being a part of it and spending that Sunday afternoon with us!”

Watch the full music video for “Goddamn I’m Dead Again” above.

“Goddamn I’m Dead Again” is featured on Sum 41’s recently released album, 13 Voices. The record was released back in the fall of 2016 through Hopeless Records. Following its release, the band headed out on their massive ‘Don’t Call It a Sum-Back’ tour which yield several sold out shows.

Currently, Sum 41 is in the middle of their co-headlining “We Will Detonate!” tour with Pierce the Veil. In addition to the tour stops with Pierce the Veil, Sum 41 will also appear at a handful of music festivals including Carolina Rebellion, Northern Invasion, and Rocklahoma where their spring tour will officially wrap up on May 26. The complete list of Sum 41 tour dates can be found here.

Sum 41 declares ‘Death of Pop’ with new song

image

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.

Sum 41 unleash music video for new single

image

A couple of weeks after announcing a massive fall tour, Sum 41 has returned with a brand new music video. On Thursday (Aug. 25), the Canadian band unveiled the music video for the first official single off of their upcoming album, 13 Voices. Earlier in the week, the band had taken to Facebook to announced that they had decided on “War” as the official lead single from the impending record, though in June, they released “Fake My Own Death.”

“Hey everyone. I wanted to let you know that we have picked the official 1st single from our new record #13Voices,” the band wrote on Facebook on Monday (Aug. 22). “We will be releasing the song at 12am et on August 25th. This song is called ‘WAR.'” The music video for the song is simpler than the internet parody clip they created for “Fake My Own Death.”

The almost four-minute video begins with a woman driving a convertible in the middle of the desert. Eventually, she reaches an airplane wreckage and parks the car. She gets out and goes to the trunk of the car and pulls out frontman Deryck Whibley, leaving him in the sand. Throughout the clip, we see Whibley walking around the wreckage as the band performs inside of the bare plane. As Whibley walks around the wreckage he stops and see items in the sand. The items include a doodle, a stripped shirt, a guitar, a skateboard and a bottle of whiskey. Watch the complete video for “War” below.

According to a Facebook post which accompanied the new song’s video, Whibley explained just how the song came to be. “So we have officially picked the first single now. This song is called ‘War,’ I picked this song because of it’s importance to me,” the post, written by Whibley begins. “I feel this song literally saved my life. I was at my absolute lowest point of what seemed like a never-ending recovery. I was at a tipping point where I could have easily just given up and went back to my old ways of alcohol abuse which would’ve ended up killing me, which at the time felt like a better option. When all of a sudden, in mid-thought, these lyrics sort of appeared in my head and I grabbed a pencil and paper instead of a bottle and started writing.

The note continues: “When I read it back to myself, I realized I had written words that I would need to live up to if I wanted to survive. Whenever I had any thoughts of giving up, I would read these lyrics myself. To remind me that I need to keep fighting harder and what it was exactly I was fighting for.”

“War” will join “Fake My Own Death” on Sum 41’s sixth studio album. 13 Voices is set to be released on Oct. 7 through Hopeless Records. In support of the new album, the band will embark on their “Don’t Call it a Sum-Back” tour. The trek will kick off on Oct. 5 at the House of Blues in Orlando and wrap up a month later on Nov. 6 at the Mayan in Los Angeles. The complete list of tour dates can be found here.
