Sum 41 Drummer Quits
Steve "Stevo" Jocz took to Sum 41's official Facebook page last night April 17 to announce his decision to part ways with the band, NME reports. Sum 41 are due to release a new album later this year but it is currently unclear whether all the tracks had been fully recorded before the drummer's departure. Jocz, who was a founding member of Sum 41 along with frontman Deryck Whibley, made the post thanking fans for "making the last 17 years possible." Jocz did not explain the sudden post or the reason for his departure but said that he has "had a blast." He also says: "I've had the opportunity to see and experience so much and for that I am truly grateful." The full statement reads: "I'm sorry to announce that I've decided to leave Sum 41.Touring with the band has been an amazing experience that has taken us far beyond our old practice space in my parent's basement to countless countries around the world. I've had the opportunity to see and experience so much and for that I am truly grateful. I just want to thank all of our fans for making the last 17 years possible. I had a blast. Thanks again, Stevo." Guitarist Dave Baksh, who was also a founding member, left Sum 41 in 2006 to join new band Brown Brigade after citing the classic line: "creative differences." Last week, Sum 41 dropped out from supporting Billy Talent on their Canadian tour because of Whibley's reoccurring back pain.
