“We just felt like making more music so we jumped back in the studio. It started out as 3 or 4 songs but we ended up with 12 that we were all excited about.” – Travis Barker
The trio topped the Billboard 200 chart as California debuted at number one. From California, ‘Bored To Death’ reached #54 on triple j’s Hottest 100.
Since their humble beginnings twenty-five years ago, when they started playing in a San Diego garage, blink-182 have sold over fifty million albums worldwide and rocked audiences from Adelaide to Zurich having become one of the defining rock bands of their generation. They combine high-energy dynamics with an artistic ambition that transcends any genre. Now with Matt Skiba (of Alkaline Trio) joining blink-182 as singer/guitarist, the group starts a new chapter.
