Sum 41 made a huge comeback after years of silence.
A tour, a new song and a new album incoming.
Today they have released the first single "War" of the upcoming album "13 Voices".
Frontman Deryck Whibley had the following to say about this:
"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. 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. 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. - deryck"
We are very proud of Deryck for overcoming this horrible disease!
