It’s weird to think of Sum 41 as a veteran band but hell, it’s almost exactly a decade since ‘All Killer, No Filler’ and Whibley’s warriors are still doing their thing. And while the Canadian four-piece may want to be seen as a grown-up rock ‘n’ roll band – as evidenced by the retro-styled, slightly underwhelming likes of ‘Baby You Don’t Want To Know’ and ‘Reason To Believe’ – they’re still at their best when unleashing some metallic pop-punk fury, as on the title track and ‘Skumfuk’. They’re no longer a phenomenon; instead, Sum 41 have continued to mature into a rather good band.
As the end of the year edged into sight, we had one more round of tour madness before the festival downtime kicked in. Here's what you missed in November (spoiler: contains pop-punk, tears and BABYMETAL)
In RS199, we step behind the scenes of one of the world’s hottest bands – All Time Low – as they teeter on the edge of superstardom. Elsewhere, Danny Worsnop talks We Are Harlot, Asking Alexandria and more, we hear about the songs that inspired Frank Iero and My Chemical Romance, and we dip behind the scenes on Architects’ biggest ever tour.
PLUS: There are eight FREE ALL TIME LOW POSTERS. FREE, we say.
