Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley initially teased the superstar tour back in July, when speaking to Global News about Order in Decline.

When asked if Sum 41 had any plans to return to Canada for more gigs after the band’s sold-out show in Toronto earlier this month, Whibley said: “Yeah! We’re very excited to come back!”

“We’re actually working on some stuff right now,” added the Fat Lip rocker, “I just can’t say when (laughs).”
