If you’re ready for some new trash-pop, then Simple Creatures is here to help satisfy your craving.
On Friday (Aug. 30), the Mark Hoppus and Alex Gaskarth-led act released their first new track in several months. Titled “Thanks, I Hate It,” the tune finds the duo doing what they do best; combining catchy/dancy beats, loads of synth, and some thought-provoking lyrics.
Listen to “Thanks, I Hate It” above.
“Thanks, I Hate It” will be featured on Simple Creatures’ new EP, Everything Opposite. The six-song record was initially scheduled for a summertime release, but as fans have noticed, it did not happen.
Instead, the duo revealed that the EP will now see a fall-time release date. Everything Opposite is due out Oct. 11 with pre-orders currently available for purchase.
When asked about the reason behind the change in release date, Gaskarth responded the only way he knows how to; sarcastically.
“Had to push back out release date because Skynet leaked the wrong artwork or some such,” the singer tweeted.
According to a press release, the upcoming EP will feature “Thanks, I Hate It,” previously released track “Special,” “One Little Lie,” “Need Me,” “The Wolf” and “NVM.”
While Simple Creatures did perform at some big-name music festivals earlier this summer, their shows have tapered. We can safely assume it had to do with Hoppus’ prior commitment to Blink-182 and their monstrous summer tour with Lil Wayne and Neck Deep.
Simple Creatures will return to the stage later this year at the Good Things Festival in Australia.
Who knows…maybe they’ll turn up at a venue near you.
