UPDATE (9/27, 10:24 a.m. ET): The song is now available to stream. "When I wrote 'Landmines' I had no intention of writing an old school 'pop punk' song," Whibley explained in a statement. "It just came out really quickly and I knew right away that this song felt special to me." Listen to that nostalgic sing-along oh-ooh-whoa chorus below.
The band announced back in May that they would be disbanding after releasing this final record and completing a headlining world tour behind it.
Last year, Whibley shared in an interview that half of Heaven :x: Hell would see Sum 41 return to their pop-punk roots.
"A lot of other people were retreating to things that made them feel good in the past," Whibley told Rolling Stone at the time. "There's some weird nostalgia that kicked in because of the pandemic. It all made sense to me why pop-punk is coming back: it's feel-good music. There's something that's happy about it. Something young and innocent and free."
