Canadian pop-punk heroes Sum 41 are calling it quits, but they're making a mark on the charts before they do.

The band's last record, Heaven :X: Hell, came out on Fri. April 5 and debuts on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart this week at No. 37. The album also landed on the Billboard 200 at No. 108, their tenth release on that chart.

The Ajax, Ontario rockers recently set a new chart record, for longest gap between No. 1 songs on the Alternative Airplay chart. "Landmines," the lead single off of Heaven :X: Hell, claimed the top spot on that chart last month, 23 years after "Fat Lip" held that title in 2001. Their song "Dopamine" is also being added to many radio playlists in Canada.


Heaven :X: Hell comes out amidst the group's final world tour, Tour of the Setting Sum, which will take the band across Europe and North America this summer and fall. The band will close out their long-running career in January 2025, with 13 final Canadian dates, taking them from Victoria, B.C. to Toronto, where they'll play their final two shows at Scotiabank Arena, as the Sum sets for good.

Also debuting on the Canadian Albums chart this week is Canadian country singer Josh Ross with his new record, Complicated, at No. 73. Ross has had several singles on the Canadian Hot 100, but this is his first time on the Canadian Albums chart. As Ross' star continues to rise — the singer recently performed at the Juno Awards — this is unlikely to be his last appearance on the chart.

Elsewhere on the charts, Beyoncé claims the top spot on the Albums chart with Cowboy Carter. 20 of the album's 27 tracks — several of which were penned by Canadians — are charting on the Canadian Hot 100.


South Korean group ILLIT make their Canadian Hot 100 debut this week with the upbeat "Magnetic" landing at No. 45. U.K. singer Artemas also has a new entry on the chart, "If You Think I'm Pretty," while his previous debut, "I Like The Way You Kiss Me," moves up to No. 11, and could be coming for a top 10 spot.

Benson Boone's "Beautiful Things," moves back up to the top spot on the Canadian Hot 100, in its 11th week on the chart, confirming that Boone is the current artist-to-beat for stars seeking a Canadian No. 1.
