Sum 41 are breaking up. The Canadian pop-punk vets — known for early 2000s hits like "Fat Lip," "In Too Deep" and "Still Waiting" — have announced that after one more album and a farewell tour, they'll be calling it a day. 

"Being in Sum 41 since 1996 brought us some of the best moments of our lives," the band wrote in a statement. "We are forever grateful to our fans both old and new, who have supported us in every way. It is hard to articulate the love and respect we have for all of you and we wanted you to hear this from us first.

"Sum 41 will be disbanding. We will still be finishing all of our current upcoming tour dates this year, and we're looking forward to releasing our final album, Heaven and Hell, along with a final worldwide headlining tour to celebrate. Details will be announced as soon as we have them.

"For now, we look forward to seeing all of you skumfuks on the road and are excited for what the future will bring for each of us. Thank you for the last 27 years of Sum 41."

Since their 2001 breakthrough debut, All Killer No Filler, Sum 41 have released a total of seven albums, their most recent opus being 2019's Order in Decline. This summer, they're slated to tour the U.S. in support of the Offspring with fellow Y2K pop-punk kings, Simple Plan.
