Blink 182 California

BLINK 182 TO RELEASE DELUXE CALIFORNIA EDITION

After delivering one of the most anticipated albums of 2016, Grammy nominated pop-punk band BLINK-182 will release the deluxe edition of CALIFORNIA on 19 May 2017. The deluxe album contains 11 new songs and an acoustic version of BORED TO DEATH, in addition to the original album.

One of the new tracks from the album, PARKING LOT, can be listened to now on Spotify.

“We felt like making more music so we jumped back in the studio,” says Travis Barker. “It started out as three or four songs but we ended up with 12 that we were all excited about.”

The trio topped the UK Album Chart – their first ever UK #1 – and the Billboard Chart with CALIFORNIA, while two songs from the album, BORED TO DEATH and SHE’S OUT OF HER MIND, both reached #1 at Alternative Radio in the USA. The band headlined a sold out arena tour in summer 2016 in the USA and continue touring throughout 2017 in the USA and Europe, including the following UK dates:
