Blink-182 have repackaged last year’s stellar album California into a brand new deluxe edition featuring 12 brand new tracks, the first of these ‘Parking Lot’ is out now, check it out here…
It’s fair to say that last year’s album from a revamped Blink-182 titled ‘California’ took everyone by surprise, it turned out to be a true return to form for the American punk rockers and even featured in our Top 20 albums of last year.
There was rumours late last year that the band were back in the studio hard at work on a repackage to California, originally only intending to be 3 extra tracks, they found themselves getting back into the music and creating a mammoth 12 extra tracks, I don’t usually agree with repackages as I feel a couple tracks just ends up shortchanging fans however in this case I'm completely on board with it, mainly because it’s basically a completely new album added on top.
First single ‘Parking Lot’ is out now and you can listen below, as you can tell from listening to it that lyrically it carries on from California in it’s themes but sonically it has an early era Blink feel and I'm sure it will definitely please long time fans
The album comes out May 19th, you can check out the artwork and track listing below;
