Watch Sum 41's Deryck Whibley Detail His Recovery: Warped Tour Interview

The band's frontman says their new album helped him get out the dark hole of alcoholism

Music is one of the world's biggest healers, and it helped Deryck Whibley on the road to recovery. The Sum 41 frontman sat down with Fuse at this year's Warped Tour, where he recalled his struggles with alcoholism. He tells us,

"I just ended up in the hospital and realized that I kind of taken this as far as you could absolutely take it. It was next level, and I didn't really want to go there. Being at that low of a point, the only thing that could help me recover was just music."

Whibley continued, "Starting to write songs, getting back on the road, forcing myself to have a deadline for a record and a tour...so I had to get better." He also touched on Sum 41's upcoming album 13 Voices, their first in five years.
