Listen: Blink-182 – “Up All Night”
Well, it finally arrived. The first new single from Blink-182 since 2005 is finally available for you to check out. It’s called “Up All Night” from their forthcoming album, Neighborhoods, which still has no release date. And how do we feel about this track? Does it bring me back to the way I felt when I heard “Rock Show” or “All The Small Things”? Umm…..no.
It’s not a bad song, per se, but maybe it’s because I’m not as young as I was when Blink hit the scene with their colossal pop-punk hits and awesome music videos. Tom Delonge still whines all through a song, Travis Barker still keeps a mean beat and Mark Hoppus just does what he does to make the band work. In all, the Warped Tour kids will like it and die hards will play it on full blast repeatedly. As for me, I’ll just wait and see what the rest of the album has in store. Not bad, Blink, but you can do better.
