Sum 41 have fuelled new fire to the closing track on their latest album, Order in Decline (our review here) and teamed up with emo/rap artist Nothing, Nowhere as an added bonus. ‘Catching Fire’ is an anthemic yet touching song that shines a light on suicide, depression and mental health.
While it’s been a while since Order in Decline was released, revisiting this track reminds us of just how empowering Sum 41’s ballads are and how much emotion front man/lyricist Deryck Whibley pours into his music:
‘Just so you know, you meant the world to us
I know that it’s too late
And all I want is another chance
I can’t accept that you have left.”
Nothing, Nowhere is no stranger to collaborating with alternative/rock acts and clearly a big fan of pop punk, having just dropped a killer track with Aussie favs Stand Atlantic last month. While you’re jamming to his latest collab with the Sum 41 boys, here’s hoping that Offspring/Sum 41 Australian tour is currently being rescheduled and rebooked for a 2022 date. My fingers and toes are crossed!
