Blink-182 Appear to Tease New Music With Mystery Website and Lyric Posters – Billboard

Blink-182 are up to… something. The pop-punk trio posted a mysterious new video on their official site on Wednesday (Sept. 6) and fans have spotted posters in a number of cities that seem to hint at a new single. The latter reportedly feature the Blink logo and the line “One more time…”

A snap of a set of posters one fan found in a Toronto store window reportedly have what seem like lyrics that read: “Do I have to die to hear you miss me?/ Do I have to die to hear you say goodbye?/ I don’t want to act like there’s tomorrow/ I don’t want to wait to do this one more time.”

Adding to the speculation that the reunited group are prepping a follow-up to their late 2022 comeback single, “Edging,” is a revamped official site which now opens with a note that says “Site closed for maintenance.” But if you click on the box that says “okay,” it leads you to a colorful page where a figure in a yellow hazmat suit and gas mask wearing headphones is busy dancing around and scrubbing various messages off a dirty bathroom wall.

The wall features a band logo, the words “crappy punk rock,” “a pink TV playing classic Blink concert footage and the apparent lyrics “I don’t feel pain/ But I feel more than you’d ever know.” As the scrubber listens to what sounds like a new Blink riff on the headphones, they slowly erase all the messages on the wall while tuning the TV and cueing up a clock that blinks “12:00” as the sounds of a strummed acoustic guitar briefly bubble up.

In addition, fans who text the phone number on the wall will get a response that reads: “helloooo it’s your favorite crappy rock band blink-182. make sure you click the link above so we can save your contact.” Blink re-re-united with twice-departed singer/guitarist Tom DeLonge last year and dropped “Edging” in October. Though they’ve been teasing a comeback album ever since, to date they have not yet announced a title or release date for their follow-up to 2019’s Nine, which featured DeLonge’s fill-in, Alkaline Trio guitarist/singer Matt Skiba. DeLonge shared what appeared to be a snapshot from a new video two weeks ago in which he strummed a guitar in front of a green screen.

The band has been on tour in Europe, but last week they were forced to postpone a series of shows so drummer Travis Barker could fly home to be by pregnant wife Kourtney Kardashian’s side due to a medical emergency she described as “urgent fetal surgery”; the band will resume the tour on Friday (Sept. 8) in Antwerp, Belgium.
