It”s been eight years since we”ve gotten to enjoy new hi-jinks from perpetual adolescents Blink-182. That all ends on Friday, when the trio bows its new single, “Up All Night.
The group took to its Facebook page this morning to review that the song will premiere at 7:30 AM PDT (10:30 EDT) on Los Angeles rock station KROQ. If you want to listen along on the web, the address is http://www.kroq.radio.com or on http://www.blink182.com
The trio, which reunited in 2009 after a four-year hiatus, plans to release an album later this summer or early fall on Geffen Records. As we reported earlier, Blink”s Mark Hoppus posted on his Tumblr account a few weeks ago that “the finish line is approaching. We”ve chosen an album title, started working on artwork, moving into mixing, and getting ready for tour rehearsals.”
In a conference call with reporters in June, Hoppus told reporters to expect “a diverse palate,” according to Billboard. “We have these songs that are total throwbacks, exactly what people know Blink is. Then we have some…that are madly different and experimental.”
The band starts the Honda Civic tour with My Chemical Romance Aug. 5 in Holmdel, N.J.
