The blink 182 general discussion topic

Simple Creatures was annoying as fuck, but it didn't offend me in any way because it was a Mark 'side' project, so I'm happy to see him having fun and that lightsaber video made me chuckle.

They had a few moments.  Nothing I'll ever remember though like Boxcar/+44/AvA/Cali/Nine their other official side projects.  

I'll probably relate it more to blink than anything Aquabats though.

okay so thats an unpopulair opinion on my part.

But Mark did sound better on those EP's, power behind his vocals and a slick production without overdoing the autotune melodyne thing thats all over Cali. I remember times on the 2016/2017 records where i would hear singing notes that didn't even sound ''human''. Just butchered by Feldman.

They were as good as the Aquabats album though!

simple creatures had it’s moments. love one little lie to this day, and songs like strange love, nvm, and adrenaline still pop up. i think it would’ve been cooler to release as an album — would’ve gotten more press and maybe made more waves. the collab was more inspired than most during that era.

did Blink win the VMA?

I'm just seeing that they were up against Fall Out Boy, Paramore, boygenius, 30 Seconds to Mars and Lana del Rey for best alternative song. Lana del Rey won ‐ to no one's surprise.

I agree. I said a while back that I would be so stoked if the new blink record has just a song or two that was co-produced by Zakk Cervini because of exactly what you said about the production of the EP’s. I find his style (for my taste) to be an ideal balance if a band wants to fuse their live instruments with electronic elements. I enjoy those EP’s quite a bit and still hope for more music, I know Travis is sitting on a remix he did for “Drug” hopefully that sees the light of day sooner than later

Just saw this on r/blink182 (sorry!) of what appears to be another leak from the Skiba era. Unfortunately it’s only 17 seconds. I really dig the instrumental.

This is werid as hell. It this leaks are coming from the original demos before Feldmann, the must be coming from a really close person to the band, as long as Skiba said those songs were at some Mark's hard drive or even Mark or Matt. If they come from the album that they were working on after NINE (that was cold shelved), it mus be from someone in the studio.

I think we'll end up listening the whole thing at some point. Which is cool. I'm curious.

I assume they are from after NINE, it feels very similar to the sound they were doing at that time
