Deryck Whibley of Sum 41 will be sitting in the producer's chair for the next album from The Audition. According to a Rock Sound report, the band had this to say:
We talked to a bunch of producers before we got hooked up with Deryck from Sum 41. We hit it off instantly, he has a totally different outlook than any other producer we have worked with, he is really all about song writing and making sure all the songs are ready and that we have taken our time to put everything into them.

The Audition released Champion last year. Sum 41 released Underclass Hero, a Japan-only greatest hits collection and are planning a new EP soon.
