“Knowing that they are unable to deliver their signature high energy show, Sum 41 made the tough decision that a break is needed while Deryck begins rehabilitation for the slipped disc,” the group said in a¬†statement Wednesday.

Three men attacked Deryck in a bar in Japan, where the band was playing the Summer Sonic rock festival.

“[We] are very disappointed that we have to pull off the tour. [But] we know that it would be more frustrating for the fans if we can’t give it our all,” drummer Steve Jocz said.

“Deryck is doing everything he can to get himself better and we’re there for him.”

Get well soon Deryck.
