Sum 41 released their latest album, 13 Voices, in the Fall and saw incredible success with Billboard charting positions that included #9 on the Top Albums chart. The 10-track album was recorded, produced and engineered by singer Deryck Whibley at his home in Los Angeles and marks the band’s first LP in five years, following up 2011’s Screaming Bloody Murder. Fans and press alike praised the album and the band has been touring nonstop to sold-out crowds around the world. Heralded by outlets like Billboard, Rolling Stone, People, Yahoo, Huffington Post, Entertainment Weekly, Ultimate-Guitar, myspace, Alternative Press and more, Sum 41 is back and better than ever. Fans can purchase 13 Voices now in stores at Target, on iTunes or streaming on Spotify.
Born in New York, Frank Zummo began drumming around age 3, when he discovered his father’s drum kit. By age 7, he was an award-winning drummer, taking home top prize in Long Island Drum Centers “Battle of the Beats”. Looking at Zummo’s impressive resume, it’s clear to see he never stopped. Zummo has performed on many TV shows over the years (The Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien Show, Hells Kitchen, Master Chef, American Idol & Glee). He has also recorded on many platinum & gold records with Artists Kelly Clarkson, Orianthi, Gary Numan & The Used as well as on scores for the films “Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World” and “Beautiful Creatures.” Additionally, he has played for bands such as Julien-K, Dead By Sunrise (ft. Chester Bennington) and even filling in for injured Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee during 2009’s Crüe Fest 2. The immensely talented drummer of punk-rock band Sum 41, EDM duo Krewella, and Street Drum Corps has also recently joined the SJC Drum family. Frank and SJC partnered with Shepard Fairey, American contemporary street artist, graphic designer, activist, and founder of OBEY to create a custom drum kit, which Frank used on tour with Sum 41 in the fall.
