Platinum selling/Grammy nominated punker's Sum41 came out to a crazed house in Reno Nevada last night and when all was said and done the crowd was chanting for "one more song ".
Sum 41 is currently touring in celebration of the tenth anniversary of their sophomore release "Does This Look Infected?" Now ten years you say isn't really that long especially when other bands are doing 25th and 30th anniversary album shows. Well with all the guys have been though from recording an album in a war zone, highly publicized divorce, and personal demons I'm sure it seems like a lifetime.

After a long hiatus, it was unknown if Sum 41 were even alive. On Thursday, January 10, the band made it obvious that they were very much still alive. Super nostalgic were a couple words that came to mind on this day, and Sum 41 rocked the Glass House stage in Pomona, CA in front of an enthusiastic, and ever so rowdy audience.
While the band is touring on the 10th anniversary of second full-length “Does This Look Infected?”, don’t expect frontman Deryck Whibley, bassist Cone McCaslin, drummer Steve Jocz, and lead guitarist Tom Thacker to play the album in its entirety. Rather, the night’s set boasted of tracks spanning the band’s catchy discography (Still Waiting, In Too Deep, Fat Lip, and the latest Blood In My Eyes being among them) with some covers in the mix. It would be a night to remember as the crowd sang along, broke out into circle pits, and brought forth a continuous flow of crowd surfers throughout the night.
Sum 41′s tour continues forth through North America until the beginning of February. before going overseas.
Teenage angst returned and flooded my body Friday night at the Ritz Ybor in Tampa when Sum 41 took the stage and filled our heads with rants against the government and society.
A decade has gone by since their second album, Does This Look Infected, came out in November 2002, and this tour celebrated the anniversary. It's hard to believe I have been listening to this band since age 11 and never saw them before Friday night. I wish I could of seen them in their prime, but now, Sum 41 is back and ready to pound out old punk rock favorites. And even 10 years later, these guys still know how to rock.
