Jim Harrington of the San Francisco Examiner spoke with Sum 41 drummer Steve Jocz who says the group is bringing a more metal approach to its signature pop-punk sound with their just released sophomore effort ‘Does This Look Infected?’ “We wanted to go a little harder,” Jocz says. “We all kind of got bored of the whole pop-punk thing, which I think everyone else did. We don’t even listen to that stuff at all. Our roots, as in what we grew up listening to, are in heavy metal. So we wanted to fuse the two together.” Examiner.com has since removed the article.
