Perhaps the new sound can be attributed to Sum 41's new lead guitarist, Tom Thacker. Thacker came from another Canadian band called "Gob," which I like to think is a reference to Arrested Development. After touring with the band, Thacker became an official member of the band after the departure of Sum 41's previous guitarist, Dave Baksh.

Its been a while I dont even know when the last show was, said Gob singer/guitarist Tom Thacker. We toured quite a bit during the last records release but now we just want to get something out fresh and do some more tours.
According to Thacker, all the recording has been completed for the as-yet unnamed record, with final mixing now underway. The album took a bit longer than anticipated following the bands last release, Muertos Vivos in 2007.
Weve been chipping away at it and its basically done now so were just going to mix it and it should be out sometime probably in the fall, said Thacker.
However, how Gob plans to get the album out remains to be seen, as the industry landscape has changed considerably in just the five years since their last album.
The industry seems to be changing so much that were not sure what were going to do with it, said Thacker. The online stuff seems to be so much more important than making physical sales. Of course, its nice to have CDs and LPs and well always have that, but we just want to make sure we do the best for the record in terms of promoting it and stuff, and things are changing.
Thacker continued by discussing how bands are now becoming more empowered with tools like social media and self-publishing, with the use of record labels becoming less and less.
Its amazing instead of needing a record label to hire people to put ads out or whatever, you can just post a video to Facebook or tweet something, he said. The artist is kind of taking the industry back from the label.
When asked why its taken this long for the group to get together and refocus on Gob, Thacker said a lot has happened in the past few years, including him joining Sum 41 as fulltime guitarist and backup vocalist back in 2007.
A lot of things have changed. Ive been busy with Sum 41 and two of us (are) now living in New York, said Thacker. But now its all about coming back to Vancouver and regrouping.
As for the upcoming Canadian tour, Thacker said fans can expect to hear the tracks theyve come to know and love as the band will be performing material from its extensive back catalogue to get back into the groove of things.
Were gonna be playing stuff off Too Late No Friends and stuff like that, said Thacker, referring to the bands second album.
