Records are set to release a second single by Platinum
selling Canadian pop punksters SUM 41. There's
simply no doubting the popularity of the band since
releasing their first full-length album on Mercury Records
earlier this year. It might not be to everyone's taste
around here -and they may not be nice to their elders
- but as sure as eggs is eggs, they're getting popular.
The album in question, 'All Killer No Filler'
is even said to haveshipped Gold and climbed
the albums chart before they even released their first
single. SUM 41 played a sell out London show at the
Astoria on September 28th and released their debut single
'Fat Lip' the following week. And whether you like it
or not, the single reached Number 8 in the UK singles
Comprised of four cheeky upstarts from Toronto, Canada
the band formed when they were all still in high school.
They landed their deal with Island/Def Jam in
the US in 1999 and have been touring their little butts
of ever since. They have played with everyone from The
Mighty Mighty Bosstones, the Offspring,
Blink 182 to Social Distortion and a stint
on the Warped Tour. Doesn't it just break your sultry
little alternative heart?
The latest single, 'In Too Deep' is catchy slice of
pop punk pie which is sure to propel them into the charts
once again. The band has recently been in the UK promoting
their new single, which included pre records for the
charming Ant and Dec's CDUK and Top Of The Pops (their
second appearance on the show).
You had a BMX and a skateboard once, pal. Why not try
dusting them down?
