Blink 182

Live in Vancouver (09/18/16)

Abbotsford Centre - Vancouver, BC




When the black curtains fell at the Abbotsford Centre, Blink 182 dived into an evening of nostalgia and progression, creating a unique evening showcasing the future and past of the pop punk band.

Touring in support of this year’s California, the trio treated Vancouver to their first post-Tom DeLonge performance with Alkaline Trio‘s Matt Skiba taking over guitar and vocal duties. Sonically, Skiba fits perfectly. Years of harmonizing with Dan Andriano has readied him for the new role, what took a hit is the on-stage presence that Blink used to have.

The banter between Mark and Tom was always fascinating, comical and so very real. Off-the-cuff chit-chat that not only felt fresh, but also incredibly genuine. Each night felt like a new show no matter how many of the same songs they played.

Skiba hasn’t quite perfected that repertoire with Mark yet, making the performance a bit more – dare I say – normal.

However, the show itself – the setlist, pyrotechnics, and lights – were on top form.

As the opening chords of Feeling This blared through the speakers, four big bangs rung though the arena and there it was: the famous flaming fuck from Blink 182‘s Take Off Your Pants and Jacket tour. It was a throwback to an older tour gimmick, a hidden gem that many people probably have forgotten but it also set the tone for the night as they continually pulled through hidden gems – many of which came from TOYPAJ itself.

Somehow you just wouldn’t expect them to pull out Family Reunion or Happy Holidays Your Bastard when they just released Built This Pool, but the night featured all three and Brohemian Rhapsody as well. In between you were treated to the hits – I Miss You, What’s My Age Again, All The Small Things, Stay Together For The Kids  – alongside many of the lesser known cuts like Dystentary Gary, Dumpweed, Down, Reckless Abandon and Violence (which was used for Barker’s famous show-stopping solo section). The distinction between famed abd

Of course, the evening wouldn’t be a new tour without cuts from their latest album making an appearance, so the crowd got to compare Skiba’s writing style to DeLonge’s as the switched from I Miss You to Bored to Death and San Diego to Not Now

Their set was punctuated by flames spitting out all around Travis Barker and interactive videos splashed across the big screen (the videos for The Rockshow, Dystentary Gary and Los Angeles definitely being the highlights). They even filled the crowd with inflatable sex dolls for First Date.

Sadly, the venue itself wasn’t as ready for the show as the band was. The sound was sub-par, muffled for a large part of the set; and for four entire songs, the house lights were fully on. At first it may have been a schtick, but it soon became evident that something was wrong and the lights were stuck on inadvertently.

Was the show the best Blink show to grace Vancouver in the past several years – definitely not. I missed some of the comedic charm that DeLonge and Hoppus carried with them, but nothing really matters when they end the night with both Carousel and Dammit in their encore.

Anytime those two songs come on – well, then the night’s a success.

New Blink 182 Album in 2014

Blink 182Pop-punk legends Blink 182 have announced they will release a new album in late spring/early summer 2014. The as yet unwritten and record will co e together when the band get together in the studio later this year. Mark Hoppus has said this about the writing process:

“It always happens when the three of us are together in a room, because when [we’re not touring], Tom lives in San Diego, Travis lives in Los Angeles and I live in London, so we don’t really talk all that much. But then when we get in a room together, it all falls into place and we start making jokes. That’s when we start writing songs and reconnecting with everything.”

This will be the band’s first full length since Neighborhoods in 2011 and follow last year’s Dogs Eating Dogs digital EP.


Travis Barker Drops From Australian Blink 182 Tour

Blink 182Blink-182‘s drummer, Travis Barker, will no longer be joining the band when they head down to Australia on February 20th. Barker was unable to overcome his fear of flying in order to make the trip. The band explained:

“The trip to Australia was planned during our European tour last summer. The band knew the chances of Travis overcoming his fear of flying, which was magnified after the horrible plane crash in 2008, would be a challenge, but we wanted to play for our fans in Australia nonetheless. The three of us tried all measures to get us all there in full form. Travis has been working to overcome his fear of flying. Since we now know we have to make the trip without Travis our friend Brooks Wackerman (Bad Religion, Tenacious D) has stepped in. We love our fans in Australia so canceling was not an option so we still plan to come and play some kick ass shows. Mark, Tom, and Travis”

Barker also made a personal statement saying:

“I’m sorry to announce i won’t be joining Blink-182 on this Australian tour. I still haven’t gotten over the horrific events that took place the last time i flew when my plane crashed and 4 people were killed, two being my best friends. I gave the band my blessing to take another drummer if they still wanted to do the tour without me. I hope to come to Australia again some day perhaps by ship if need be. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a boat that worked with the schedule this time around. Once again I’m sorry to all the fans.”

Replacing Barker on the tour is Bad Religion drummer Brooks Wackerman. 

The band self-released Dogs Eating Dogs last year.

Blink 182 - Untitled

Blink 182

Rating: 4/5




Forget about anal sex with animals. Forget about incest and guys with three testicles. Forget about masturbation and ejaculation. Forget anything you may think you know about this band and put any preconceptions behind you. The guys of Blink182 have moved away from their immature jokes that they are known for and have made a new, different, mature album.

“Hello there, my angel from my nightmare. The shadow from the background of the morgue. The unsuspecting victim of darkness in the valley We can live like Jack and Sally if we want. Where you can always find me. We’ll have Halloween on Christmas, and in the night we’ll wish this never ends.” The first lines of the band’s second single “I Miss You“, not something you’d expect to hear from this trio is it? The truth is, nothing on this album is what you have come to expect from them. Darker lyrics, heavier melodies along with nastier, stronger and grittier riffs are what you find in the latest effort from the San Diego trio.

Blink182 used many different techniques to make their songs sound exactly the way they wanted them to sound. It worked perfectly, but I find it hard to imagine how they will play the songs live and make them sound the same as the recording. Will they bring a shower onto the stage to sing into to get the same reverb sound that they have on Down? Or will Tom stand 15 feet away from the microphone and scream into it for certain parts of Feeling This? Will they ever get the chance to play All Of This live? Without the help of Robert Smith from The Cure? I don’t know, we’ll have to wait and see.

The Untitled album is something new from the band, pumping something different onto the airwaves then the generic pop-punk we are seeing everywhere. It takes some time to get into and to really understand. I really doubt that many people will fall in love with it in their first listen, but give it time and it will grow on you. O, and one final thing, now it is impossible to say that Blink182 “sold out”. They have created a 50 minute album of songs for themselves and no one else. They threw away all conventional writing methods and made an album which must be respected and enjoyed. You may not agree with what they write about or may not like some of their songs; but they are still a band that deserves respect no matter what for that succeeded and what all bands try to do: they made an album for themselves. Forgot about what people wanted them to make and wrote an album for themselves and if their fans don’t like it, well that’s their problem.

Blink 182 - Greatest Hits

Blink 182

Greatest Hits

Geffen Records

Rating: 4/5




Say all you want about Blink182, call them sell outs, call them posers, call them whatever you want to. But deep down, you know that they’ve done a lot of positive things for the punk rock scene. Chances are, unless you had an older sibling who was into punk, your first punk band was Blink182. I know that that’s true for me. And I know, that if it wasn’t for them, this site wouldn’t be here. I would not have gotten into punk, never would’ve started making sites (my first site was a Blink fan site), and my life would be completely different. Hell, one of the first ever cds I burnt was cleverly entitled “Best of Blink”. So it’s safe to say that even though I already own every single Blink CD, a greatest hits collection still sparked my interest.

And really, Greatest Hits is a nice collection of the band’s songs from their six CDs (not counting Buddha – which, oddly enough, doesn’t make an appearance here). Chances are you’ve heard 99% of the songs on here with all but four being big hit singles. They kick it off in chronological order with some songs from Cheshire Cat with M&Ms and Carousel, easily one of the band’s most popular tracks. From there, they then go through all their major singles like Dammit, What’s My Age Again?, All The Small Things, The Rock Show and so forth all the way to their most recent single, Always. They even including the only studio track from The Mark Tom And Travis ShowMan Overboard.

The weirdest thing about this CD though is that the main selling point is the two new bonus songs: Not Now and Another Girl Another Plant – both of which aren’t all that new. Not Now is widely availed throughout the internet and was a special bonus track on their untitled release in the UK while Another Girl Another Planet is the theme song for Travis Barker’s reality TV show, Meet The Barkers. And while this makes both these songs a lot easier to ge a hold of, it would’ve been nice to actually hear two real unreleased songs.

Blink182‘s Greatest Hits is easily summed up as this: it’s Blink182. You either love them or you hate them, and you’ve all heard the songs on this before. So the choice is up to you whether you want to pick it up or not. For fans like me, it’s a nice addition to cap off a successful career with.

Blink 182

While very few details have surfaced as of yet, it appears that Blink 182, who just split with their long time label Interscope Records and entered the studio to record new songs, will be releasing a new EP in time for Christmas.

Blink 182 Split With Label, Begin Recording New Album

Blink 182

A few stories have recently come out from the Blink 182 camp in the last little while.

First was the announcement that they have left Interscope Records and are now operating as an independent band. Bassist Mark Hoppus explained to MTV saying:

Yes indeed, we are no longer with Interscope. It’s been a long, amazing journey with them, starting with Cargo records, then MCA, then Geffen, and finally Interscope, but the time has come to move on. The reasons for us not working together are many and varied, but mostly we wish them luck in everything in their future, and thank those there who’ve worked so hard on Blink-182 throughout the years.”

The band reunited to release their album Neighborhoods last year on Interscope.

Originally, Hoppus announced plans to begin recording after their tour of Australia comes to an end in February; however, according to a recent Twitter update, it appears that Blink 182 are heading to California this week to begin recording. Chances are these will be demos for what will turn into the full album in February. Guitarist Tom DeLonge meanwhile has been posting some cryptic updates on his Twitter account about the writing process.

In other news, the band recently released a limited edition tshirt design with 100% of the profits going to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
