[Exclusive Interview 獨家專訪] Sum 41 – This is War 奮戰。人生

全文 Full Article

今年夏天,Sum 41 再次踏上 Warped Tour 巡演旅途,全程表現顯得充滿信心。事實上,主唱 Deryck Whibley 在過去幾年經歷了人生的重大挑戰 —— 離婚、酗酒、因此而差點喪命、遇見他現時的另一半、更在去年共諧連理 —— 最後終於回到錄音室,與舊日隊友把所有點滴思緒化作音樂靈感。雖然還沒有機會欣賞到他們受高度期待的專輯13 Voices (10月7日才出版喔!),但很高興 Deryck 在百忙中抽空跟我們談談過去起跌、新作內容和亞洲巡演可能性等。

This year, Sum 41 decides to put out their comeback album and get back on the Warped Tour, looking refreshed and fierce. Away from the limelight, frontman Deryck Whibley has been through a rough journey in the past few years – fatal illness, getting sober, getting married – and finally, going back to the studio and creating some emotional music with his pals. While waiting for their highly-anticipated album, “13 Voices”, out on October 07, we have the chance to chat with Deryck on new music, personal journey, possibility of Asia Tour (!) and everything in between.

回顧全文 Review

「⋯⋯這幾年證明了,Suicide Silence 在一切高低起跌過後,再次站穩腳步,Eddie Hermida 接替因摩托車意外去世的原主唱Mitch Lucker 不知不覺間已有兩年,似乎已被新舊樂迷所認同,正式帶領樂團進入新時代。在2014年首次到港時,Eddie 剛剛加入SS沒多久,與其他成員在仍在磨合階段,因此現場演出時帶來多變的可能性。兩年時間過去,樂團以新陣容發行了一起創作的專輯 You Can’t Stop Me 及到全球各地巡演 ; 在這個夏夜,他們帶來一個更堅實、正面的演出。樂團再次五為一體⋯⋯」
