Grammy-nominated band Sum 41 has shared their newest single "Waiting On A Twist Of Fate", out now via Rise Records, from their upcoming final album Heaven :x: Hell. The second single from the double album's pop-punk Heaven side harkens back to the earliest days of the band's pop punk roots. The track opens the album the only way long-time fans would expect Sum 41 to open an album – a flurry of guitar riffs, drum fills, and vocals powerful enough to raise the dead.

“Waiting On A Twist Of Fate” is available to stream now at here.

“Waiting On A Twist Of Fate” is paired alongside a brand new music video. Filmed at the Punk Rock Museum in Las Vegas, the video pays homage to the music that inspired the formation of Sum 41 that the members hold close to their hearts to this day. The video features a cameo from CJ Ramone, as well as footage of Sum 41 inside of Green Day’s infamous tour bus the Bookmobile.

Sum 41 announced their upcoming double album, Heaven :x: Hell, expected for release on March 29 via Rise Records. Heaven :x: Hell is the most ambitious album from Sum 41 yet - Heaven is 10 tracks of snarling high energy pop punk, while Hell consists of ten heavy metal anthems spiked with fret-burning solos, thrashing riffs, and fist-pumping hooks. The band has been straddling the line of pop-punk and metal for their entire career, and Heaven :x: Hell is a testament to their innovative sound and unmatched skill, proving them as pioneers 27 years after the bands inception.

Heaven :x: Hell is available to pre-save and pre-order now here.

Sum 41 shared previously “Rise Up” and “Landmines”, from Heaven :x: Hell’s metal Hell side and pop-punk Heaven portion, respectively. The tracks have gained the attention of notable outlets such as Entertainment Tonight, Revolver, Consequence, NME, Exclaim!, BrooklynVegan, Alternative Press, KNOTFEST, and countless others. The band also made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform “Landmines”, available on-demand on YouTube. The track is currently at #2 on US Alternative radio charts and #1 on Canada Alternative, Active Rock, and Big Picture radio charts.

Earlier this year, Sum 41 announced their breakup after 27 years of making music together - the news was reported on by The New York Times, NPR, Rolling Stone, CNN, Bloomberg, Pitchfork, TODAY, CBS, Billboard, and countless other major news outlets globally. Heaven :x: Hell is aiming for nothing short of greatness, a perfect parting gift from the band to the fans that have supported them endlessly.

Sum 41 is getting ready to embark on their final worldwide tour, Tour Of The Setting Sum, later this year. The band will be making stops in the United States, Japan, Mexico, Germany, Italy, and more, as well as performing their largest show to date to a sold-out crowd of over 35,000 people at Paris La Défense Arena in France later this year. Sum 41 will be playing their final show as a band in Toronto, Ontario, at Scotiabank Arena on January 30, 2025. All tickets are on-sale now at www.sum41.com/tour.

Looking back at the band’s storied 27 year career, Sum 41 has firmly cemented their place in rock history with over 15 million records sold worldwide, multiple Billboard Charting releases, a Grammy Award nomination, 2 JUNO Awards (7 nominations), a Kerrang! Award in 2002, multiple Alternative Press Music Awards, and countless other accolades.
