Sum 41 has a turbulent history behind it. The Canadians made their international breakthrough in 2001 with their hit “Fat Lip” and were on the verge of dying again and again in the years that followed. In 2014, singer Deryck Whibley (43) was hospitalized after excessive alcohol consumption with liver and kidney failure. He treated his addiction in the album “13 Voices”.

In Germany, the Canadian punk rockers can be seen at the “Rock im Park” in Nuremberg (June 3) and the “Rock am Ring” at the Nürburgring (June 4).
