Remember when blink-182 promised us a brand new song by week’s end? Well, it looks like the group has kept their promise and treated us to the new jam. On Wednesday (May 8), the California-founded band unleashed their first new song in several years, “Blame it on My Youth.”
If you were expecting some old-school blink-182, then you might be slightly disappointed. The funny, immature dick jokes are gone as the lyrics take a more adult turn with Mark Hoppus and Matt Skiba reminiscing about their youth and what they had to overcome to get where they are because “no one is going to block their shine.”
Listen to “Blame it on My Youth” above.
“Blame it on My Youth” comes a day after the band revealed the track’s name on social media. The trio posted an image of graffiti on a wall with “blame it on my youth,” the band’s logo, and the band’s name printed on the bricks.
“Blame it on My Youth” is reportedly the first single off blink-182’s upcoming new studio record. Though it does not have a title or official release date, speculations have begun that it will see a summertime release date.
The yet-to-be-confirmed album is the follow-up to 2016’s California.
Earlier this week, blink-182 announced a massive summer tour with Lil Wayne and Neck Deep. The co-headlining excursion begins on June 27 at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus and concludes two and a half months later on Sept. 10 in Camden, New Jersey at the BB&T Pavilion.
Pre-sale tickets are currently available while general ticket sales begin this Friday, May 10, at 10 a.m. local time. Check out the full list of tour dates here.
