Sum 41 in UK tour

Sum 41 will tour the UK in February, they’ve announced.

It’ll be their first run of shows in the British Isles since frontman Deryck Whibley started on the road to recovery after a near-fatal battle with alcoholism.

The tour will support the release of their sixth album, created via a pledge campaign.

Whibley said in July: “After being in this band for 20 years, I didn’t know what else I had to say. Now, two years later and with everything I’ve gone through, I do have something to say. Now I’m ready.”

Tickets go on sale at 9am on October 5 (Monday).

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
