After promising new material by Christmas, Blink-182 have picked a release date: their new EP, Dogs Eating Dogs, is due December 18th. The EP, their first since splitting with Interscope in October, will be available in three different bundles: "Santa's Lap Package," with a special print, shirt, holiday wrapping paper and card; "Nice Package," with a special fleece, holiday wrapping paper and card; and "Naughty Package," with a special shirt and card. Preorders are available now through Blink-182's website.

"This EP is a hundred times better than Neighborhoods, because we're all in a room together," drummer Travis Barker told Rolling Stone earlier this month. "The rule is there's no rules."

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
