Sum 41 Release Music Video For 'War'

Sum 41

(TeamRock) Sum 41 have released a video for their new single "War." The song is taken from the Canadian punk outfit's upcoming sixth album 13 Voices, which is released on October 7 via Hopeless Records.

13 Voices was written as frontman Deryck Whibley recovered from a near-death experience brought on by alcohol abuse. The video for War shows the band performing in an airplane graveyard in the middle of a California desert. Whibley uncovers reminders of his past - a journal, an old drawing, a t-shirt, a guitar and an empty bottle of alcohol - in the wreckage and burns them along with his past life.

Whibley says the crash site represents how he "crashed and burned" and that the graveyard was "a place for a funeral for my past." He adds: "I feel that this song literally saved my life. I was at my absolute lowest point of what seemed like a never-ending recovery. When I was at a tipping point of falling back into drinking or staying the course of recovery, I grabbed a pencil and paper instead of a bottle and started writing.

"Whenever I had any thoughts of giving up, I would read these lyrics to myself over and over again. They helped remind me of what it was that I was fighting for, and that I needed to keep fighting harder. Giving up was not an option." Watch the video here.
