Blink-182 premiered “Up All Night,” the first single from their still-untitled forthcoming album since 2003 last night on the Los Angeles radio station KROQ. The song, which delivers the band’s distinctive pop-punk hooks on a monumental, stadium-size scale, is the first song the Southern California trio have released since they broke up in 2005.
Back in March, guitarist Tom Delonge told Rolling Stone that the band were hoping to take their sound to new places on the new disc. “I want to make sure we don’t lose that angst,” he said. “I want to take that and deliver it in a package that’s very modern, using instrumentations and formulas to launch you into different places with music that is not just three-chord pop-punk with riffs. What we can do now is take the essence of what Blink-182 was and really make it into something that has a crescendo. That’s what excites me.”
