Blink-182 have released two new tracks from their latest album, ‘One More Time..’.
The album which arrives on October 20, is the first to be released since the return of lead vocalist Tom DeLonge to the fold. DeLonge re-joined the band in 2019.
For the first time in a decade, all original bandmembers including Travis Barker, Mark Hoppus, alongside DeLonge all joined forces to release this album.
Announcing the news, Blink-182 shared a teaser video via their social media platforms, showing clips of the band speaking to Apple’s Zane Lowe.
This video also includes DeLonge revealing that wanted to reunite with his former bandmates, after hearing of Mark Hoppus’ illness.
“I remember telling my wife, ‘I don’t think I’m ever going to play music again, I don’t think I’m ever gonna tour again,’” DeLonge explained. “Until Mark told me he was sick, and then I was like, that’s the only thing I wanted to do”. More on this here.
