Sum 41 Debut in Top 10
In an unprecedented move to launch Underclass Hero, prior to release Sum 41 performed the new album live in its entirety on their website, which can be accessed at www.sum41.com. The band – who appeared recently on NBC's Tonight Show with Jay Leno – took advantage of their stay in Los Angeles to shoot the video for "Walking Disaster," the album's second single pick, follow-up to the earlier title tune single, "Underclass Hero."
Sum 41 is now in Australia for dates in Melbourne (tonight) and Sydney (August 3rd). The following weekend they co-headline Japan's prestigious Summer Sonic Festival in Tokyo (August 11th) and Osaka (August 12th), with fellow Island band Fall Out Boy, Avril Lavigne, Black Eyed Peas, Gwen Stefani, Arctic Monkeys, Offspring, and a slew of other bands. U.S. Summer tour plans include a half-dozen shows along the Vans Warped Tour from August 14th (St. Louis) through August 25th (Los Angeles).
