LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) – Sum 41 are gearing up for their upcoming North American headlining tour in support of their most recently released record, Order In Decline. In addition to launching this world tour for their seventh studio album, the band is celebrating the 15th Anniversary of multi-platinum album Chuck this year.
“We are so excited to be hitting the road throughout North America for the Order In Decline World Tour. We’ll be combining two of our heaviest albums, as well as fan favorites from throughout our career into one behemoth sized set each night. We couldn’t let this monumental anniversary pass us by and we are so ready to bring 2 full albums (and then some) worth of music to fans across the United States,” said Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley.
Ahead of the release of Chuck in 2004, Sum 41 was in the Democratic Republic of the Congo filming a documentary for War Child Canada on the effects of the Civil War. While there, the cease-fire ended, leaving the band stuck in the middle of RPGs, mortar rounds and gunfire. A UN peacekeeper named Chuck helped the band and 40 other people evacuate their hotel safely, ultimately saving their lives. The band named their third studio album in honor of him.
Fitting, Sum has once again aligned itself philanthropically with War Child on this upcoming tour. With the help of PLUS1, $1 from every ticket sold will go to the organization to support children and families in communities affected by war throughout the world.

Tickets for Sum 41’s North American leg of the Order In Decline World Tour are on sale now. The tour kicks off October 1.
