blink-182 Are Releasing A New Song Called Quarantine

Travis Barker has confirmed that blink-182’s new song Quarantine will be arriving within the next two weeks.

After bassist Mark Hoppus revealed that he’d been working on new material for blink-182 while in lockdown, Travis Barker has now confirmed that a brand-new song from the pop-punk kings is coming “in the next two weeks”.

The track goes by the appropriate name of Quarantine according to the drummer, with Travis telling Spin that he’s “really excited about it”.

Though he doesn’t tease anything else about the song – which will be blink’s first since their 2019 album NINE – Travis does explain what else he’s been up to lately in the music world, having produced Machine Gun Kelly’s upcoming pop-punk album Tickets To My Downfall recently, too.

I’m spoiled,” he says. “This week, Brian Lee and I produced a blink song and recorded it. Finished three jxdn songs; finished an acoustic MGK song and reworked three other songs on the album; played on a YUNGBLUD song; co-produced and played drums on a Steve Aoki song featuring Trevor Daniels and MGK. So it’s my dream job.”

Mark, too, has been dipping his toes into non-blink-related work, with his Simple Creatures bandmate Alex Gaskarth revealing last month that the pair had been remotely throwing ideas between each other for what’s to come next.

“We’re already working on potential quarantine music while we’re all on lockdown,” Alex said. “[Mark]’s in Idaho – he escaped while he still could – and I’m stuck home in Maryland, so we won’t be doing it in person but we’re sending ideas back and forth and we’re always talking about what the next steps are for Simple Creatures. It’s in the works.”

Mark also recently confirmed that blink’s 2019 collaborations EP with rappers Lil Uzi Vert and Pharrell is still happening on top of all of the above. Phew…
