Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, and Travis Barker are back with their first new album together since 2011. One More Time… is out October 20 via Columbia. The title track single is out this Thursday, September 21, at 10 a.m. Eastern.
The trailer reveals that “One More Time” is about the heartbreaking circumstances the band members went through prior to their reunion. “On the album, "One More Time" is written about ‘why does it take these catastrophes like me being in a plane crash or Mark being sick for our band to get back together,’” Travis Barker says in the trailer.
Tom DeLonge added: “Coming out with these words, "One More Time," it’s like, ‘Hey, this is the last time we’re going to f**k this up.”
Travis Barker produced "One More Time…". The new album follows Blink-182’s two albums with guitarist Matt Skiba, 2016’s California and 2019’s Nine.
Back in April, Blink-182 were surprise guests at Coachella, where the classic lineup performed on both weekends and headlined the second after Frank Ocean pulled out. That reunion—the classic lineup’s first show since 2015—followed Blink-182’s return last October with the single “Edging.”
Blink-182 had been slated to tour South America a month before, but postponed the dates when Barker sustained an injury requiring finger surgery. This month, the band postponed tour dates citing a family matter, namely that Barker’s wife, Kourtney Kardashian, underwent surgery. He has since rejoined the tour.
Blink-182 started teasing something new this month, when a video and posters appeared pointing to the band’s website. A landing page featured a digital clock flashing at 9:21, corresponding to today’s date.
