Blink-182 Release Single “Bored To Death”, But Is It Any Good?

Blink-182 2016 shot

American pop-punk legends Blink-182 have released their first single Bored To Death from their forthcoming seventh studio album ‘California’. It’s the first song made since founding guitarist Tom DeLongue left the band to work other projects including his band Angels and Airways.

Since being replaced, the San Diego 3-piece have reverted back to their 2001 – 2003 era sound, similar to ‘Take Off Your Pants And Jacket’ and self-titled albums which includes singles The Rock Show, First Date, I Miss You, and Feeling This. 

The single is a combination of 1999’s single Adam’s Song and 2000’s Every Time I Look For You but still has that signature Blink-182 sound and vibe.

It starts with Travis’ unmistakable drumming,  and throughout the song Mark Hoppus projects his soothing low voice whilst new member Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio helps with some back-up vocals. This is an awesome piece to follow up from 2011’s ‘Neighborhoods’ and fanboys of old Blink-182 should be more than welcoming to the familiar sound.

Blink-182 were last in Australia for Soundwave in 2013. However due to Travis’ fear of flying, it is unknown when or if they will tour here.

Blink-182’s latest album ‘California’ is set for release on the 1st of July.
