Sum 41 Debut in Top 10

(PR) Underclass Hero, the fourth full-length album by Island Records group Sum 41, debuted today at #7 on Billboard's Top 200 Album Chart with sales of over 44,000 units. In addition to this being the highest US chart debut for the multi-platinum act (the band's 2004 release, Chuck, debuted at #10), Underclass Hero also entered the Japanese chart at #1 last week, with sales of 65,000. [They also topped the charts in their homeland according to Jam!]

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).
