When Sum 41 announced themselves to the world with their debut single ‘Fat Lip’, it immediately struck a chord. Follow up tunes ‘In Too Deep’ and ‘Motivation’ made their first album, All Killer, No Filler the soundtrack to a generation and every teen comedy films of the early 2000s. Along with their contemporaries Blink 182, they tapped into the raucous, fun filled, devil-may-care attitude of the time. Over the next ten years, they continued to release music that was critically acclaimed but a little less commercially successful. Their progress stalled after that as member changes, injury and battles with alcohol addiction put paid to a number of tours and planned recording sessions but they returned in 2016 with their sixth record, 13 Voices, their most commercially successful release since their debut 15 years earlier. In July 2019, they continued their renaissance with Order in Decline, an album described by Wall Of Sound as “the best version of Sum 41 we’ve heard in years”.
