Sum 41 have had to pull out of the Kerrang! Tour in February as frontman Deryk Whibley has injured his back. The Blackout will replace them on all dates. A statement can be seen below the cut.
“I feel really terrible about letting down the fans. I injured my back and the doctors are saying that I could be in a wheelchair. So, as much as I wanted to be able to do it, I’ve got to look at reality, and for the first time I’ve got to listen to somebody else and not just myself. We’re all really upset about this; we’ve had such a great relationship with our UK fans. We were really looking forward to this tour.”
