Continuing 2011's trip down memory lane, early aughts pop-punk act Blink 182
recently put aside their differences for the greater good and scrambled back to the studio to put down their first song together as a band in eight years. If you weren't preoccupied, you might have heard their new track, "Up All Night", which hit the internet a little earlier than reported. Now we've got our first official taste of the Blink comeback, a snappy track with an aggressive initial riff and a distinctly "Feeling This" backbeat. There is something familiar about the back-and-forth Mark and Tom action and those oh-so-simple Blink harmonies that we can't help but be charmed by—even if we've heard it before a million times. It certainly has me confused about my age.
There's an album coming too, so be ready for more. If Blink has learned anything about the music industry (Tom at least pretends he has
), they've saved the better bits of their newsies for later singles. Stay tuned.
