Ahead of its extensive North American tour, which kicks off this Saturday in Salt Lake City, Utah, Sum 41 has announced its plans to return home to Toronto for an exclusive performance this summer.

On Aug. 8, the Canadian rock icons will play Toronto’s Echo Beach in front of nearly five thousand avid fans along with up-and-coming singer-songwriter Grandson as their special guest.

The announcement came with news of a brand-new album — the first in three years. Order in Decline will be released through Hopeless Records on July 19.

The lead single, Out for Blood, dropped on Wednesday along with a music video perfectly suited to the new rock anthem. The video was produced by Selfish Entertainment and directed by Lee Levin.

The Sum 41 lineup currently consists of frontman Deryck Whibley, guitarists Dave Baksh and Tom Thacker, bassist Jason McCaslin and the latest member, drummer Frank Zummo, who joined in 2015.

The Ajax-born band is best known for its first three albums, All Killer No Filler (2001), Does This Look Infected? (2002) and the hard-hitting Chuck (2004).

Throughout their career, the band members have earned massive success with hits such as In Too Deep, Motivation and The Hell Song.

After a brief decline in 2011, the band came back strong and regained its popularity with 2016’s 13 Voices.

The No Personal Space tour will run throughout the U.S. until July before Sum 41 “comes home.”

As well as Toronto, the five-piece will play the Rock La Cauze Festival in Victoriaville, Que., on Aug. 10.

As of this writing, it’s unclear whether the band will announce any more Canadian dates.
