About Sum 41
Formed in 1996, Sum 41 is a punk rock band from Ontario, Canada. In the early years, the band consisted of Deryck Whibley, Dave Baksh, Steve Jocz, and temporary members. Later, the band added Jason McCaslin to complete the lineup. Beginning as a cover band, Sum 41 performed in the local Ajax area. Known for playing an abundance of shows, they worked 2 years before releasing a demo. In 1998, they produced a series of demos for fans and record labels. The group continued this trend for the next 2 years, releasing their first EP, Half Hour of Power in 2000.
The next year, the trio dropped their first and most successful album, All Killa No Filla. The record gained immediate commercial success. Since its release, it has sold over a million copies and won many awards. Most of the success came from the hit single “Fat Lip.” This song and others from the album featured in television shows and major motion films. After the release, Sum 41 toured playing over 300 shows in a single year. The road weary band returned the studio in 2001 to work on their sophomore album, Does This Look Infected.
The record became a modest success. It sold over a million copies in Canada; yet, did not have the popularity the first had. Again, Sum 41 went on an extensive tour promoting their new album. The shows continued until the band returned to the studio to work on their third album, Chuck.
The record flew off shelves continuing Sum 41’s popularity. Dark and heavy, the album garnered critical acclaim for its inventive sound. After the band returned from their promotional tour, Dave Baksh announced he was leaving the band for other projects.
The next album, Underclass Hero dropped in 2007 and received praise from fans. Critics didn’t feel the same way and wrote negative reviews; however, it fared well. For the next 5 years, Sum 41 rode their wave of fortune playing and writing at random. In 2014, Whibley announced he had liver and kidney problems; yet, the band still wasn’t finished.
