Grammy nominated band Sum 41 make a boisterous return with “Landmines”, their newest single and first release on Rise Records

“Landmines” is a testament of going to hell and back for the ones that matter – vocalist Deryck Whibley paints a picture of dodging shrapnel and smoke, but valiantly holding on to the ones you love. The chorus is an instant crowd-pleaser with anthemic chants that pull a room together, glued by drum fills that shake the ground as hard as the metaphorical landmines. The track is paired alongside a brand new music video that finds the band transforming prom from the class of 1998 into a raucous rock show-turned-foodfight, thrusting Sum 41 and their fans back to the early days of their career.

Although Sum 41 may have announced the impending closing of their chapter, “Landmines” proves that the pop punk legends are going out with a bang.

“When I wrote Landmines I had no intention of writing an old school “pop punk” song. It just came out really quickly and I knew right away that this song felt special to me,” shares Whibley.

Next month, Sum 41 will be performing on 21st October and 22nd October 2023 at When We Were Young in Las Vegas, Nevada. The band is also performing a set at a sold-out When We Were Young Sideshow on 20th October at Brooklyn Bowl alongside Bowling For Soup, Plain White T’s, Your Broken Hero, and more.

The band will head to European shores in 2024 to play a sold-out show at La Defense Arena- Paris, France on the 24th November 2024.
