Watch Sum 41’s New Video for the Hard-Charging, Punk/Metal Anthem ‘Out for Blood’

Canadian pop-punk/metal band Sum 41 roared back on Tuesday with a new single, a track called “Out for Blood” that more or less sounds like what you’d expect from the band: Propulsive drums, heavy metal-tinged guitars and frenetic punk fury.

It’s the lead single to Order in Decline, the band’s seventh full-length album, which will be released on July 19. Watch the song’s music video, which features a number of hardcore fans, below:

Order in Decline features material written by front man Deryck Whibley, particularly his reactions to the world around him as he sees it today:

Unconsciously, Whibley saw lyrics reflecting his reactions to seeing the pervasive division, racism and hate around the world, even more so punctuated by the repulsive social and political turmoil invading his own home nations of the United States and Canada. “The last thing I wanted to do was write a social or political protest record, and Order In Decline is not that,” Whibley clarifies. Instead, Order in Decline is a burst of uninhibited feeling, a page out of his journal, a window into his soul that reflects on extremely personal and vulnerable events, because as he confesses, “It’s also very hard not to have feelings about everything that’s going on in the world.”

Whibley also produced, mixed and engineered the album at his home studio.

The band’s new album will be the follow-up to 2016’s 13 Voices, which saw the return of original guitarist Dave Baksh — who provided much of Sum 41’s harder-edged metal/punk elements over the years.
