Following May’s brilliant YOU NEEDED A HIT// and this month’s Bloc Party collab, KennyHoopla is back with even more new music.

The pop-punk leader has teamed up with blink-182’s Travis Barker for new single SABOTAGE//, with Kenny also revealing that it’s the first song from a new ‘capsule’ that they are releasing together, entitled blink and you’ll miss it, that’s “coming soon”.

Speaking about SABOTAGE//, Kenny explains that the song is “about becoming so self-aware as a person you end up being restricted by invisible boundaries and blurred lines. You’re becoming a toxic mixture of everyone’s viewpoint swirled inside of your head until everything is right and wrong at the same time and you end up paralysed – not being an actual progression for anyone at all, burning everything you touch. Stretching a smile for other people’s happiness is never worth the sadness in the end. There is a great pain that comes with trying to be a good or fair person in this current world, an even greater ego death than you most likely never even got a chance to build, but we stay as silent and pure as we can for the possibility of ‘peace’ one day. The pictures never do justice.”

Listen to SABOTAGE// below:

Kenny has got a big few months coming up: across the pond he’ll be supporting blink at several of their reunion shows with Tom DeLonge, before he returns to the UK. There, Kenny will support Limp Bizkit at their biggest UK headline show ever in London, before playing Reading & Leeds at the end of August.
