Pop-punk legends Sum 41 have announced their final record, the Heaven :x: Hell double album, will be released March 24 via Rise Records. Check out the latest single—and first from the ‘Hell’ side of the album—“Rise Up” now.
Heaven :x: Hell is being dubbed as the most ambitious album Sum 41 have ever released, with the ‘Heaven’ side filled with 10 tracks of snarling, high-energy pop-punk, and the ‘Hell’ part consisting of the same amount of heavy metal anthems spiked with fret-burning solos, thrashing riffs, and fist-pumping hooks.
The band have always been known for straddling the line of pop-punk and metal, and this album—their final offering before calling it a day as a band—is testament to the innovative sound that has proven them as pioneers in the rock genre for the past 27 years.
Their new single “Rise Up” opens with a flurry of guitar riffs and pounding drums fit for a mosh pit straight out of the band’s early years.
