Blink-182 releases new song in 6/8 time and it's...different

April 27, 2017

Blink-182 has released yet another new song called "6/8" and the band is calling it the "strangest song we've ever recorded."

The guitars are a lot more aggressive and reminiscent of bands like AFI and Billy Talent. The name of the song is in reference to being written in 6/8 time

Every Blink-182 album ranked from best to worst

"6/8" is on the deluxe edition of California, Blink's latest album. The deluxe edition is due to be released on May 19. 

We talked to Travis Barker a while back where he mentioned that during recordings for California, the band with newly-acquired Matt Skiba at the helm wrote nearly 30 songs for the new album. Most of which didn't make the cut in the 11-song final product. Those misfit songs are what you'll hear in the new deluxe edition.

"6/8" is the second song we've heard from the deluxe edition, following "Parking Lot." It's like Blink saw that video of the guy playing "Dammit" in a minor key and liked it.

What do you think of the new jam?
