It’s been over a month since blink-182 blessed fans with their comeback single, “Bored to Death.” On Monday (June 20), the pop-punk giants gave their fans the music video for the lead track from their upcoming release. The music video begins with a teenager, sitting inside of a classroom, a scissor in hand scrapping something onto the table top before dozing off. Before long, the school bell rings marking freedom.
The video follows the teenager as he meets up with his friends in an abandoned parking lot as he goes about his afternoon doing things like riding around in a car, hanging out in a record store, and swimming in someone’s pool (without permission). In between shots of the “punk” and his friends, there are clips of blink performing in what appears to be an intimate club with a massive crowd. At the end of it all, the “punk” and his friends all end up at the blink-182, no longer ‘bored to death.’ Check out the music video for “Bored to Death” below.
“Bored to Death” is the lead single off of blink-182’s upcoming new record, California. Previously, the band release several new tunes including “Built this Pool,” “Brohemian Rhapsody,” and “Rabbit Hole.” California is set to be released on July 1 through BMG.
In support of their seventh studio album (and first with Matt Skiba on guitar), blink-182 will head out on one of the summer’s most anticipated tours. The trek will feature support from A Day to Remember, All Time Low, The All-American Rejects, and DJ Spider. The complete list of upcoming tour dates can currently be found here.
California is the highly-anticipated follow-up to blink’s 2011 release, Neighborhoods.
