The Sum might be setting, but pop-punk icons Sum 41 will play a final run of Canadian dates next year before they call it a day. The group has added a dozen new Canadian stops to their Tour of the Setting Sum, which travels the globe this year before concluding in their home country next January.

The new dates include an extra show in Toronto on Jan. 28 at Scotiabank Arena, in addition to the previously announced January 30 date, which will be their final show as a band. They'll also play three more Ontario dates, three B.C. dates, and each of the Prairie provinces.

The tour announcement arrives ahead of their final album, Heaven :x: Hell, out this Friday (Mar. 29). The double album shows off Sum 41's two musical identities, pop-punk and metal. It also features the single "Landmines," which recently became their first No. 1 in 20 years when it topped the Alternative Airplay chart. The last time the Ajax, Ontario band had a No. 1 on Alternative Airplay was in 2001, with their single "Fat Lip," making them the new record-holders for longest gap between No. 1s on that chart.

A lot has changed in the 20-plus years between those singles. Sum 41's Deryck Whibley explained in a December GQ interview that, between health problems and time away from family, the music lifestyle has become harder to maintain. The band are calling it quits while it's still fun and going out amidst a resurgence in popularity, playing to fans around the world.

The final tour began earlier this month, and has already taken the group to Indonesia, Malaysia and Japan. They'll tour the U.S. and Europe this summer, as well as stopping in Quebec for four dates in August. Their final run of shows takes place in January 2025.
