This morning, pop-punk fans seem to be divided over the new blink-182 song ‘Blame It On My Youth‘ which debuted overnight and legions of fans (both new and old) have shared their thoughts and opinions on it. But they’re not alone, former guitarist Tom DeLonge has also revealed what he thinks of the track too and it’s all good!
In an Instagram video where he was addressing all the support he’s been receiving for the new Angels & Airwaves song ‘Rebel Girl‘ (check it out here) and their US Tours selling out all over the place, he gave a shout out to his former bandmates and praised the song saying:
“I’m super excited for those guys and it’s cool to hear the evolution of their music”
He also gave a shout out to Mark Hoppus‘ side project Simple Creatures he does alongside Alex Gaskarth (All Time Low) who debuted their Strange Love EP back in March (our review here). As a fan, it’s great to see the guys all getting along and being supportive of each other after what can only be explained as one of the most colossal band breakups of all time happened back in 2015 when DeLonge was unceremoniously kicked out/left the band to pursue other projects.
After giving the new blink song a few more spins on repeat, it’s starting to grow on me. For those who can’t get into it, just a reminder that this was only one of 40 songs they said they had ready to go for this new, forthcoming album. So keep an eye and ear out for what’s ahead.
