Canadian punk rock band Sum 41 have announced they will be disbanding after a final album and world tour.
The band, known for hit songs including In Too Deep and Fatlip, said they would be “forever grateful” to their fans and were excited for the future.
The band formed in Ontario, Canada, in 1996, and have released seven albums with various line-ups.
In a statement posted on social media on Monday, Sum 41 confirmed that their eighth album, Heaven and Hell, would be their last.

“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.”
The statement added: “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.
