Canadian pop-punks Sum 41 have announced that they're to call it a day.

The band, who released their debut album All Killer No Filler in 2001, have been readying the release of their eighth studio album Heaven :xHell, and will announce details of the release and tour dates in due course. Their most recent release was 2019's Order in Decline.

In a post on the band's official Instagram account, they wrote: "Being in Sum 41 since 1996 brought us some of the best moments of our lives. 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 :x: 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."
