The track is a fresh take on a classic Blink song packed with a tapping guitar riff, heavy drums and catchy, anthemic lyrics such as: “Olé, Olé. Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé / Yeah / We’re doing it all night long“.
Directed by The Malloys, the song’s accompanying video is billed as a love letter to the famous New York punks – one of Blink’s favourite bands – and sees Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker dressed up in Ramones cosplay. They replicate some of the band’s iconic moments such as playing at the CBGB.
The forthcoming album, ‘One More Time…’ was recorded between the band’s reunion tour and produced by Barker. The LP will mark the first time the classic Blink line-up – comprising Hoppus, DeLonge and Barker – have released a new full-length project together since 2011’s ‘Neighborhoods’.
DeLonge quit Blink-182 in 2015 to focus on extraterrestrial research and his other band, Angels & Airwaves. During that time, Hoppus and Barker released 2016’s ‘California’ and 2019’s ‘Nine’ with guitarist Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio.
‘One More Time…’ is scheduled for release on October 20 via Colombia. You can pre-order/ pre-save the album here.

In other Blink news, Barker recently revealed that he recently had an episode of trigeminal neuralgia, as well as a COVID infection and root canal treatment.
The drummer has been plagued by health issues in the last few weeks, joking to fans that it means he “can pretty much handle anything god throws at me”.
Trigeminal neuralgia is described by the NHS as being “severely” painful. It’s caused by the compression of the trigeminal nerve and leads to facial pain so bad that it feels like “having an electric shock in the jaw”.
