Sum 41 have released their third single off the upcoming album Order In Decline! The emotionally charged ballad “Never There” is a personal letter from lead singer Deryck Whibley dedicated to single parents:
“I never wanted to write this song, it just kind of poured out of me”, said Whibley. “I tried to fight it at first but there was no stopping it. I could tell I was writing about my dad, who I’ve never met and throughout my life it has always been a subject that I don’t really think about or care about. It has never really bothered me and when I started thinking about why it never bothered me, I realized it was because my mum was so great and I have such a loving relationship with her. She was so strong as a single mother for my whole life that I never needed to think about my dad”.
Order in Decline will be out on July 19th via Hopeless Records and is available for pre-order now. The band describes it as undoubtedly their heaviest and most aggressive album to date, while also being their most dynamic and raw.
