We truly cannot stress how much stuff Blink-182 have thrown at us in the last 24 hours. We also cannot stress how freakin' stoked we are they've thrown all this stuff at us in the last 24-hours. We've received: their first song with Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba and not founding guitarist Tom DeLonge, "Bored to Death," and its accompanying lyric video. We've been given an album title, California and a release date, July 1 (the 182nd day of the year). We've been given album artwork and we've been given the news that a major North American tour is taking place later this year, our Blink boys hitting the road with All Time Low, A Day to Remember and the All-American Rejects. Life is good.
But that's not all! While paying a visit to KROQ in Los Angeles this morning, Mark Hoppus and crew also teased another new song. It's called "Built This Pool." You can listen to it above.
We only get a few seconds but it's enough to show us that the song definitely reflects Blink's classic playful homoeroticism. Hoppus sings, "I wanna see some naked dudes / That's why I built this pool."
Listen above. When you're done, take the hardest Blink-182 quiz you will ever take. Seriously. We made this shit hard.
