Sum 41 have announced their South American tour with Four Year Strong, Attack Attack!, and Pierce The Veil has been canceled due to Deryck Whibley’s ongoing medical condition. Statement from Sum 41 below:

Sum 41 has indefinitely postponed the remainder of dates on their Screaming Bloody Murder tour for 2011 due to a medical condition Deryck Whibley is currently undergoing treatment for. In order to fully recover, Deryck is under doctor’s orders to start a rehabilitation program and to recuperate for the rest of 2011.
