Blink-182 have five holiday gifts for you, and they're all conveniently bundled into dogs eating dogs, a five-song EP marking the trio's first batch of new tunes since 2011's Neighborhoods. Get a glimpse of the new new Blink here with "Boxing Day," a gentle, seasonal acoustic tune (anyone else getting flashes of "I Won't Be Home for Christmas"?) with great vocal interplay between Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge. Those who worried Neighborhoods was a one-off chemistry-rekindling can now breathe that sigh of relief.
"These songs didn't even exist a few weeks ago, they were just ideas. And now they're about to be released," Hoppus says. "Being independent, we have the freedom and ability to record and release new music when and how we want."
Blink are offering three different holiday-flavored bundles over at the band's site. Physical items ship this week, and the digital EP is available Dec. 18.
What kind of time warp?! '90s (and early 2000s) rock icons Fred Durst, Scott Weiland and Mark McGrath get photobombed by '70s icon Wayne Newton, aka Mr. Las Vegas. This should be all these guys' Christmas cards.
