November 1st, 2016 – Los Angeles, CA – In addition to Sum 41 being featured in the latest issue of Rolling Stone, the band spent some time performing three acoustic songs exclusively for RollingStone.com, that have just gone live. The stripped down set features two new songs off 13 Voices, “War” and “Fake My Own Death” and a throwback from their 2002 sophomore album, Does This Look Infected, with “Hell Song.” Rolling Stone journalist Brittany Spanos said, “The acoustic run-through unlocks the vulnerability singer Deryck Whibley puts forth in his lyrics.”
13 Voices, the recently released new album from Sum 41 continues to chart and premiered at #9 on the Billboard Top Albums chart. In addition, 13 Voices secured the #5 spot for LP Vinyl Albums, #6 for Alternative Albums, #7 for both Rock Albums and Top Internet, and landed at #22 on the Billboard Top 200. In its first week, the album sold 16,100 copies, an increase from their last album, Screaming Bloody Murder, which featured Grammy nominated song, “Blood in My Eyes.”
Fans can purchase the album now in stores at Target, on iTunes or streaming on Spotify. The 10-track album was recorded, produced and engineered by singer Deryck Whibley at his home in Los Angeles and marks the band’s first LP in five years, following up 2011’s Screaming Bloody Murder.
