Travis Barker has been off collaborating with — well, pretty much everyone — on his solo release Give The Drummer Some, but Barker’s ready to jam out with the rest of his bandmates. Blink-182 have an upcoming album and tour planned for this year, and this morning the band debuted their first single in six years, “Up All Night”. No longer a bunch of scruffy, silly 20-somethings, these men are now concerned with “all these demons [who] keep me up all night.” Check it out below.
Blink 182 – “Up All Night”
A little bit harder than their previous radio-friendly pop-punk, this ska-infused, somewhat ominous tune will no doubt be played on the radio incessantly all summer by Blink fans thrilled by new music from the band.
As the song’s lyrics go, “Everyone raises kids in a world that changes life to a bitter game” — not exactly the cheerful, summer jam we were expecting, but it’s good for the boys in Blink to be back, even if they’re in a morose mood.
