Simple Creatures (Mark Hoppus, blink-182 & Alex Gaskarth, All Time Low), Release Debut Single “Drug”

Simple Creatures is Mark Hoppus (blink-182) and Alex Gaskarth (All Time Low).  Their debut single “Drug” was written by Hoppus and Gaskarth in collaboration with their producer and friend, Zakk Cervini (blink-182, Yungblud, All Time Low, 5SOS) and is available via all digital services HERE.

Hoppus and Gaskarth are long-time friends who both found some downtime whilst blink-182 and All Time Low were between albums.  They came together to work on something a little different and thus Simple Creatures was born.

“’Drug’ is always the first song we play people when introducing them to Simple Creatures, so it only makes sense that it’s the first single. I love the ratty guitar lead mixed with the thumping kick drum. Lyrically, the song is about being destroyed by the things you love,” Hoppus commented.

Gaskarth said: “’Drug’ is a song about someone or something you want the most, being terrible for you… Feels great until it doesn’t, but then you can’t stop.  In the studio it felt immediately like it was the song that best defined Simple Creatures; it’s gritty, grimy, rooted in the musicality we both came up on, but with a twist that takes it away from anything we’ve worked on before.“

Their debut EP will be released March 2019.
