After delivering one of the most anticipated albums of 2016, Grammy nominated pop-punk band, blink-182, dropped their deluxe edition of California on Friday, May 19th. The deluxe album includes 11 new songs and an acoustic version of Bored to Death in addition to the original album.

“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 UK Charts (their first ever UK #1) and Billboard 200 chart as California debuted at number one. Two songs from the album, Bored to Death and She’s Out of Her Mind both hit number one at Alternative Rock radio in the US. The band successfully headlined their sold out 2016 arena summer tour in the states and will continue touring throughout 2017 in both the US, UK and Europe.

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.

Now with Matt Skiba (of Alkaline Trio) joining ‘blink-182’ as singer/guitarist, the group starts a new chapter.
