Sum 41, the Grammy-nominated band, makes a lively comeback with “Landmines,” their latest single and debut release on Rise Records.
“Landmines” is a powerful expression of enduring hardships for those who matter. Deryck Whibley, the vocalist, vividly portrays evading danger while fiercely holding onto loved ones. The captivating chorus unites the crowd with anthemic chants, accompanied by drum fills that resonate like metaphorical landmines. The song is complemented by an energetic music video, showcasing Sum 41’s transformation of a 1998 prom into a wild rock concert turned food fight, reminiscent of their early career days.
“Despite Sum 41’s announcement of their forthcoming conclusion, ‘Landmines’ demonstrates that the iconic pop-punk legends are exiting on a high note.”
Whibley shares, “While writing Landmines, my intention wasn’t to create an old school ‘pop punk’ song. Surprisingly, it flowed out effortlessly and immediately, and I instantly recognized the unique significance of this track.”
“Landmines” is available to stream now and the music video will premiere at 5 pm BST
