As fans are anxiously waiting for Blink-182’s comeback album, California, the band has been building up the anticipation with the release of some of its tracks over the last couple of months. And now, we seem to have our very first visual for the record’s first single.
Bored To Death is probably likely to make you feel excited and optimistic about the new album, unlike what the title itself suggests. The track is clearly a proof that the band’s energy is not lost – I’d dare to say it’s reinvigorated – even without guitarist Tom DeLonge.
If one can make it on his own as a lead vocalist that’s surely Mark Hoppus and this first single aims to establish exactly that. Also, even though the music video appears to recycle a classic pop-punk concept – school and all – it still manages to look fresh and compelling.
* California is set for release on 1 July 2016.
