Blink-182 have made a 10-hour loop of their new, surprisingly short track ‘Built This Pool’
May 19, 2016
It looks like Blink-182 are following Hamlet’s motto, “Brevity is the soul of wit.” But when is short too short? The band has dropped a new, 14 second interlude song, titled ‘Built This Pool’ in order to get their fans excited about the upcoming release of their comeback new album. And in case 14 seconds of the new material are not enough for the fans, the rockers have made a 10-hour loop of the same track.
As soon as the voice at the end of the interlude asks, “That really it?”, the song starts all over again. Blink-182 have also offered fans the laconic track as a free download. Listen to the new 14 second back-to-basics tune below and find out why Blink-182 ‘built this pool’.
The comeback album, California, will be out July 1. Prior to the record release, Mark Hoppus and Co. dropped the new single, ‘Bored To Death’, earlier this month. It’s the band’s first new material since 2011’s record, Neighbourhoods.
California is going to be the first full-fledged album with Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba in DeLonge’s place, though Skiba had previously had a chance to perform with Blink-182′ guys live. And in case you haven’t heard yet, the band had also considered alternative titles for their new album, including Nude Erection and No Hard Feelings.
Blink-182 have also confirmed North American tour dates: the band will hit large arenas alongside A Day To Remember, All Time Low and the All-American Rejects.
