Sum 41 needs no introduction as Canada’s top pop punk band. Two time Juno award winners (Best Group ‘03 and Best Rock Album ‘05), this band’s success includes several multi-platinum records here at home as well as over 7 million units sold worldwide.

Sum 41 is back with their long awaited fourth album, Underclass Hero, released July 24. The album was #1 the first week it was released in Canada and Japan as well as a top ten album in America. Self-produced by front man Deryck Whibley, it is the follow up to Chuck, which spawned the hits “We’re All To Blame” and “Pieces”.

Stylistically, Sum 41 continue their unique meld of raucous punk-rock and thunderous heavy metal while stretching their wings with their most mature songwriting to date. From the rallying cry of first single “Underclass Hero” to the reflective musings of the ballad “Best Of Me”, Sum 41 deliver on every level. Sum 41 continues to defy labeling, having collaborated with and toured alongside musical icons that include Iggy Pop, Ludacris, Metallica and Motley Crue.

Burlington’s home town heroes, Finger Eleven made their triumphant re-entry into the music scene on March 6, 2007 with their fourth Wind-up Records release, Them vs. You vs. Me. Most recognized for their international multi-format smash single “One Thing” from their previous self-titled album, the band has once again rocketed into the limelight after a four year hiatus. Them vs. You vs. Me has reached Platinum status on the back of the band’s addictive hit “Paralyzer”. The massively successful single has broken the Canadian Rock Radio Record for most consecutive weeks at #1, has held #1 position on Much Music’s top 30 countdown, received two MMVA nominations and has received Platinum certification for digital single sales. This phenomenal success is carrying over into the US where “Paralyzer” currently holds the #1 position at both the Alternative and Active Rock formats.

Finger Eleven made Canadian Music history in July by being the first band to perform on the CHUM Building roof top during the 2007 Much Music Video Awards. The band continues their winning streak with their second single, "Falling On" which topped the Canadian BDS Rock Chart this week!
