A big old middle finger to COVID-19



After months of teasing, blink-182's new song 'Quarantine' is finally here. 

Clearly frustrated with the current state of the world, the band channel the likes of Bad Religion and The Offspring on this fast, furious and lyrically fierce two minute banger. 

Bassist Mark Hoppus had this to say about the track:

“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.”

And drummer Travis Barker added this:

"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 back up vocals.  Mark sounds more pissed off then I’ve ever heard him and I really like it.”

And there may be more new blink on the way very soon, as Travis revealed to MTV that "We’re wrapping up what we think will be an EP that hopefully will be out by the end of summer."

Lovely!

The track is the first solely blink material since 'Not Another Christmas Song' back in December, and comes after a series of collaborations.

Here they are with Oliver Tree:
