New blink-182 single

2019-05-09 by decisions | 100 Comments
blink-182 have shared "Blame It on My Youth", the first single from the trio's forthcoming record, slated to be released "some time before Warped Tour", per drummer Travis Barker. According to bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus in an interview with NME, the band recorded approximately 40 songs for the record: "I think that the world is quite a strange place right now in general. People are really wound up, everyone is on edge and that seeps into everything that you do."

"Blame It on My Youth" is the band's first new song since they released "6/8" as a B-side from 2016's California. Despite labeling the new album as "aggressive", the song is far removed from '90s and 2000s-era blink. Production credits include John Feldman, Pharrell Williams, and the Futuristics.

eh

it’s obviously not good but i kinda can’t get how people are this mad at it considering both cali and neighborhoods have a few way worse songs (and this addiction being real)

that said this isn’t a good indicator of the new album and is definitely not something i want matt skiba to be a part of but if this’ll pay the bills enough to get another ittc, then fine i guess

also the production is dreadful and kills most potentially redeeming aspects of the song like the vocal line isn’t necesarily bad but it sounds like they’re trying to put matt and mark through like distorted vocal filters to make them sound more raw but considering the more electronic and pop influenced instrumental it really really clashes, with the effects on the title of the song in the chorus definitely being the worst offender

There are definitely some elements to like in this and California, but the bad just outways the good for me. I'm at least glad this song does not contain the guitar riff that 90% of California is based on. I guess that's progress

lyrics are awful but easier to tune out than a lot of calis bc the vocals sound a lot less clear which is also a huge fucking problem but eh

like this isn’t good don’t get me wrong it’s a generous 2/5 song but this is the bottom of the barrel? really? not good old days/california title track/she’s out of her mind/sober (or to extend to other projects, some origins of fire/clever love/dry your eyes/rebel girl/draculina/eating me alive/piss and vinegar)...?

This was kind of alright? Thing is, it has me a bit worried. "Bored to Death" was the first track they released for "California" back in 2016, and the song was not only a solid single - but a good representation for what the rest of the album was going to offer. If this track is supposed to evoke the same idea, then I'm unsure if I'll like their upcoming album.

I actually prefer quite a bit of these over this song: good old days, clever love, dry your eyes, rebel girl. I happened to listen to Dry Your Eyes before reading this comment and was actually really enjoying it. Yeah it's Everything's Magic 2 but fuck it

"John Feldman and old age has killed blink"

The old age bit reminds me of a quote from The Needle Drop that suprisingly enough perfectly encapsulates my feelings on all of Blink's new material "the issue is not that Blink-182 is too old for this shit, the thing is that they sound too old for this shit"

John Feldman needs to quit the game, blink needs to go back and listen to Enema and S/T and work out what they used to be great at. I don't even think the lack of quality has anything to do with Toms absence, this must be down to Feldman

Man, I don't know if anyone else feels this way, but listening to the direction that John Fieldman has taken his career actually tarnishes listening to his old stuff.

It seems like the dude basically rode the pop punk wave not because he actually gave a shit about the style, but because it was make money. Which blows because early Goldfinger has some of my favorite pop-punk stuff on it.

Yeah, I know it's stupid to be mad that the dude just wants money, but I guess it shits on the little snippet of punk that was in his music in the first place.

I agree with this so hard. Lyrics for this new single are such trash. Mark is fastly approaching 40 presumably writing about being in his 20's. Yet, somehow, sounds like he's like 14 trying to write his first song ever... Hard to believe this is the same band that had a Robert Smith feature...

I mean, Jesus Christ...

Generational Divide is probably the best track they've released in years, really brings back the Dude Ranch / Cheshire Cat feels. They need to just put out a straightforward no-frills skatepunk EP or album and it'd be great.
