Blink-182 Share "Boxing Day" From New EP

The holiday-themed five-song effort is their first release since 'Neighborhoods'
Matt Kent

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.

July 22: HyunA Monkeys Around

HyunA, the K-pop star who gained global recognition from co-starring in Psy's "Gangnam Style" video, is teasing her new single "Red" in a very sexy, very odd new photoshoot. The singer poses amid two hunky beefcake dudes in bathingsuits wearing humongous, furry monkey heads. It's been reported that HyunA's new EP will show a more "mature" side from the singer and while this isn't the look we were necessarily imagining, it does amp up our anticipation tenfold.

Get to know more about HyunA in our video feature here.
