ARE BACK TO HEADLINE
THE KERRANG! TOUR 2016
PLUS SPECIAL GUESTS TBA
Kerrang!, the UK’s biggest-selling weekly music magazine, are pleased to announce the highly anticipated return of Sum 41, who will headline the Kerrang! Tour 2016.
Kerrang! and readers alike were devastated
when Sum 41 were forced to cancel their headline slot on the Kerrang! Tour 2012 when frontman Deryck Whibley injured his back. Now, though, the fighting-fit band – completed by Cone McCaslin (bass), Tom Thacker (guitar) and Dave Brownsound (guitars) – are all set to bring their avalanche of pop-punk anthems to UK venues in February 2016 on the Kerrang! Tour 2016.
Think Sum 41 are just about that swimming pool video you see on Kerrang! TV, even after all these years since it first aired in 2001? Well, with incredible highlights from collaborating with Iggy Pop, Tenacious D and Tommy Lee, to selling over 12 million records and touring across the globe countless times, it’s fair to say Sum 41 have surpassed the traditional ‘punk’ band credentials.
2016 also happens to be Sum 41’s 20th anniversary as a band, so what better way to celebrate with a UK tour and new music! The band have set up PledgeMusic campaign to make what has been described as their ‘best music yet’, easily sitting alongside classic anthems like the aforementioned In Too Deep, Motivation, Still Waiting and Fat Lip. Check out Pledgemusic.com/projects/sum41 for more information. Frontman Deryck Whibley has this to say:
“We’re really excited to be back on tour. After a three-year break, we're honoured that our first tour back is the Kerrang! Tour 2016 in the UK. We’ve been locked away in the studio making the new Sum 41 record, which we will be out later in the year .”
