Mark Hoppus And Alex Gaskarth Announce New Band Simple Creatures

Listen to the new song from Alex Gaskarth and Mark Hoppus’ new band, Simple Creatures.

Mark Hoppus from blink-182 and Alex Gaskarth from All Time Low are in a new band together called Simple Creatures.

The pair have also just released the debut Simple Creatures single called Drug, which was written with friend and producer Zakk Cervini who has previously worked with both bands as well as Yungblud and 5 Seconds Of Summer.

“Drug is always the first song we play people when introducing them to Simple Creatures, so it only makes sense that it’s the first single,” says Mark. “I love the ratty guitar lead mixed with the thumping kick drum. Lyrically, the song is about being destroyed by the things you love.”

“Drug is a song about someone or something you want the most, being terrible for you… Feels great until it doesn’t, but then you can’t stop,” adds Alex. “In the studio it felt immediately like it was the song that best defined Simple Creatures; it’s gritty, grimy, rooted in the musicality we both came up on, but with a twist that takes it away from anything we’ve worked on before.”

Their debut EP will be released in March. Listen to debut single Drug below!
