With the release of a new single and the promise of a new album, Blink-182 is getting ready to headline a massive summer tour with guests A Day to Remember, All Time Low and All-American Rejects.

The tour, which kicks off July 22 in San Diego, will make its way around the country–including a stop at Massachusetts’ Xfinity Center in Mansfield. All Time Low and All-American Rejects will join Blink and ADTR on select dates throughout the summer.

Before announcing the tour, the band dropped their new single, “Bored to Death” and Blink fans across the globe rejoiced.


Many said the sound was reminiscent of classic Blink–with crashing drums and nostalgic lyrics.

In an interview with KROQ radio, the trio, which consists of bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus, drummer Travis Barker, and is now complete with Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba on guitar and vocals, said the lyric video leaked accidentally, thus propelling the single into the hands of Blink fans everywhere.

A couple of days ago, the band also released another cut off of the album, “Built This Pool.”

Skiba joined Hoppus and Barker in 2015 after the untimely departure of founding member Tom DeLonge.

The band promised their new album, California, would hit the shelves July 1, which would be the 182nd day of the year if it weren’t a leap year.
