Blink-182 is giving everybody a hefty dose of nostalgia today thanks to a partnership with Spotify. In a new Spotify-created content series called Flash Frame, Blink are recreating their iconic “What’s My Age Again?” music video for their new California single, “She’s Out Of Her Mind.”
In the “She’s Out Of Her Mind” clip, it isn’t a complete re-enactment of the original – instead of Blink running throughout the video naked, they’re replaced by female social media gurus such as Hannah Stocking, Vale Genta, and Lele Pons. iPads and iPhones are also integrated in the video as they show the band performing the song on stage, and Workaholics actor Adam Devine has a cameo role as a nurse. In addition to the music video, Blink’s Flash Frame also features live performances and exclusive interviews, which can be seen on their Spotify page here.

Despite the departure of longtime vocalist Tom DeLonge, Blink 182 proved their willingness to move on without him earlier in the year with the release of their recent single “Bored To Death.” The pop punk band are now crossing over into the world of Edm with an official remix from Steve Aoki.
Aoki keeps things straight forward throughout the verses and doesn’t stray far from the structure present in the original song, save for a few vocal chops and percussive build ups. Things get pretty rowdy moving into the drops though, as the punk rock tune is transformed into a festival trap banger with blaring 808s and winding synth leads. The remix then erupts into a driving four on the floor section, with distorted kicks and plenty of energy.
Coinciding with the release, Steve Aoki also dropped a visual accompaniment that incorporates re-purposed footage from the “Bored To Death »

Blink-182 cut through the malaise with a bombastic performance of "Bored to Death" on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Monday.
The retooled pop-punk trio — with Matt Skiba on guitar and vocals — surged through the California track, moving nimbly between its fraught post-punk verse and deafening, dazzling, stadium-sized chorus.
Despite the new look and album, Blink-182 also offered up an internet exclusive treat for longtime fans, delivering a punchy rendition of their Enema of the State classic, "What's My Age Again?"

Do not adjust your computer screens. It is, in fact, still 2016. And yes, Blink-182 currently has the number one album in America. Are you tripping yet? The surprising news came in this morning, after a successful sales weekend for the band's recent release, California. The album dropped on the first of the month and is the group's first in a whopping five years (and also the first without member Tom DeLonge). And as of today, it up and toppled Drake's current reign, knocking Views off of the top spot. It's probably a hard pill to swallow for Drake, but for the rest of us it provides an amazing opportunity for a walk down memory lane. Blink-182 hasn't had a number one »

Ex Blink-182 vocalist and guitarist Tom DeLonge said he quit the band to focus on the “national security issue” of UFOs. In a recent interview with Mic, DeLonge said that touring for nine months wasn’t in the cards for him when his passion for UFO research was greater. “When you’re an individual like me, dealing with something that’s a national security issue, and you’re being gifted with the opportunity to communicate something you’ve been passionate about your whole life — something that has the opportunity to change the world over time — being a small part of that is enormously important. »

Blink-182 is back and it’s certainly not a small thing. The band has released a lyric video to go along with their new single “Bored to Death,” which comes from their upcoming album “California.” Original members Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker are joined on the album by Matt Skiba, as Tom DeLonge exited the group last year.
