Sum 41’s sophomore album, Does This Look Infected?, recently turned 15 years old this past November, so the pop-punk band are heading out on a North American tour this spring to celebrate. Announced on Tuesday morning, the Canadian rock band will kick off their upcoming 15th anniversary tour on April 27 with a show at San Francisco’s The Warfield, and will keep the party going until May 26 with a final show in Los Angeles. For the upcoming tour, the band will be playing the 12-track album in its entirety, which includes some of their biggest hits, “The Hell Song” and “Still Waiting,” just to name a few.
The tour will also see the band stopping at notable venues around the country including New York City’s Terminal 5 on May 12 and Denver’s Ogden Theatre on May 21. Tickets for select shows on the upcoming tour will be going on sale to the public starting Feb. 16 at 10 a.m. local time, and can be found by clicking here.
Does This Look Infected?’s 2002 release arrived at a time in the music industry when rock, especially the pop-punk genre, was thriving amongst a generation of post-1990s teenagers. Upon the release of Infected, the band cemented their reputation as one of the more popular acts to emerge from a pack that also included similar bands like Blink 182, Good Charlotte, New Found Glory and Simple Plan. The rock outfit would go on to release two more albums that decade before personal issues put their creative efforts on hold while Deryck Whibley spent time to address his battle with alcoholism in 2014.
More recently, the Sum 41 shared their sixth studio album in the fall of 2016 with 13 Voices. The band would go on to further cement their revival in the mainstream punk scene with their 2016-17 Don't Call It a Sum-Back Tour, which wrapped just last spring.
"This year was meant to be spent working on new music and I hadn't even realized that it was the 15 Year anniversary of 'Does This Look Infected?',” Whibley shared in a statement to go with Tuesday’s announcement. “Out of nowhere we started to receive messages from fans asking us to do another DTLI anniversary tour...and when the fans call, we go. This time around is going to be even more special because we have [guitarist] Dave "Brown Sound" Baksh with us! So back by popular demand, we'll see you on the road this April!"
