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.

You can see Sum 41 live at the following dates:
