Sum 41 have announced a new set of summer UK tour dates.
The long-running Canadian five-piece are gearing up to release their seventh studio album ‘Order in Decline’, their first LP since 2016’s ’13 Voices’. The band have promised their “heaviest and most aggressive album to date, while also being their most dynamic and raw”.
‘Order In Decline’ will be released on July 19, and Sum 41 will perform in the UK a month before the album’s release. Kicking off in Exeter on June 23, the four-date tour will conclude at the O2 Victoria Warehouse in Manchester on June 26.
Tickets for the shows go on sale on Friday (May 3) at 10am – you can see Sum 41’s upcoming UK tour schedule below.
23 – Castle, Exeter
24 – De Montfort Hall, Leicester
25 – O2 Academy Glasgow, Glasgow
26 – O2 Victoria Warehouse, Manchester
Frontman Deryck Whibley spoke about the lyrical content of the new album last week, which he says will reflect his view on the current state of the world – although not in a strictly political sense.
“The last thing I wanted to do was write a social or political protest record, and ‘Order In Decline’ is not that,” Whibley said. “It’s also very hard not to have feelings about everything that’s going on in the world.”
Last summer, Mike Shinoda joined Sum 41 on stage at Reading Festival to perform a Linkin Park cover.
