When you’ve been around for as long as Blink 182 has — and to remind you, that’s been nearly two entire decades — the ups and downs will be inevitable. Blink 182 releases their first single post founding member Tom Delonge today, titled “Bored To Death.” The song is the first single off their latest album, titled “California.”
You can give the track a listen by visiting Blink’s official site as well as pre-order a bunch of bundles with the album, which is set to be released July 1st. “Bored To Death” is giving us nostalgia for that traditional Blink sound. The first shred of new music in almost five years and we are far from disappointed. The unique sound Tom provided is a bit missed, but we’re excited to see what Matt Skiba (of Alkaline Trio) will continue to contribute. His vocals can faintly be heard during the pre-chorus and we hope this is only a teaser for the sound of the 16-track album to come.
In addition to the new song, Blink 182 also announced that they will be heading out alongside The All-American Rejects, A Day To Remember, All Time Low and Dj Spider for a North America headliner tour. Tickets go on sale May 6th.
