Here’s ‘Bored to Death’ Blink 182’s First Single Since Tom DeLonge’s Departure

Bored to Death is some new noise from Blink 182, the first single the band has released since the acrimonious departure of founding member Tom DeLonge in 2015.

The four-minute long ditty – which features the rather capable Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio standing in for Tom DeLonge – features the band’s continuing ability to deliver big smiles of pop punk, even if the song is about being a bit despondent. They’re not quite faded yet.

Presumably, the single is going to come from the band’s upcoming album, rumoured to be titled California – the album’s whose recording led to DeLonge’s split.

Speaking of DeLonge, he plans to carry out his ambitious visions for his band Angels & Airwaves, which includes scoring films and releasing concurrent novels, as well as writing children’s books and scoring science fiction films.
