Sum 41's Deryck Whibley on New Album, Alcoholism & Recovery: Interview

FUSE TV - Sum 41's Deryck Whibley on New Album, Alcoholism & Recovery: Interview

Last year, Sum 41 reunited... not that they really went anywhere. Frontman Deryck Whibley has always been one for endlessly writing and touring—but health got in the way

The pop-punk icon battled alcoholism, went to rehab in 2014 and is in recovery. At its core, his story is an inspirational one, and as Sum 41 gears up for its next release, Whibley really wants to talk about it.

We caught up with the frontman to discuss the future of his band, their first album in five years, touring plans and more.
