Sum 41 confirm 7th full-length album ‘Order In Decline’ (stream a new song)

California punk rock favorites Sum 41 have announced their seventh full-length album, Order In Decline, slated for release on July 19th through Hopeless Records.

“Looking back at the band’s storied 23+ year career, this record is undoubtedly Sum 41’s heaviest and most aggressive album to date, while also being their most dynamic and raw,” declares a press release. “During three years of relentless touring surrounding the band’s massive comeback record 13 Voices, frontman Deryck Whibley was feverishly putting together song ideas that would eventually become Order In Decline.”

The official announcement goes on to say, “Unconsciously, Whibley saw lyrics reflecting his reactions to seeing the pervasive division, racism and hate around the world, even more so punctuated by the repulsive social and political turmoil invading his own home nations of the United States and Canada.”

Comments Deryck, “The last thing I wanted to do was write a social or political protest record, and Order In Decline is not that. It’s also very hard not to have feelings about everything that’s going on in the world.”

To coincide with the LP’s announcement, Sum 41 have just released their new single/video, “Out For Blood,” which they describe as having “anthemic and echoing vocals, an insane guitar solo and never-ending energy that will captivate you from the very beginning.” Stream the clip below.
