BLINK-182 DROP TIMELY SONG AND VIDEO “QUARANTINE”

Grammy nominated California rock heavyweights, blink-182, have dropped their brand-new track “Quarantine” – listen HERE. This relevant and timely song features strong drums and killer guitars matched with angsty vocals to stress just how hard we all have been hit by this time spent in isolation and social distancing. Alongside the song comes a music video that intermixes the lyrics and raw footage of the band shot on iPhones – watch HERE.

“This song is about the sadness, confusion, anger and frustration we are all experiencing right now.  I hope that everybody is safe and that we can get through this very soon. Can’t wait to see you all on the other side.” says Mark Hoppus. Travis Barker adds “The song was inspired by the quarantine and the crappy punk rock music we have loved to play since day one.  All the drums are one take and I even sang some backup vocals. Mark sounds more pissed off then I’ve ever heard him, and I really like it.”

Alongside the brand-new song, blink-182 have also scored two MTV VMA nominations for “Best Rock” and “Best Music Video From Home” for their fan-driven montage to their song “Happy Days.” Fans of the band can vote now at vma.mtv.com.
