For the first time since 2003, multi-platinum punk band blink-182 has released new music.
The song “Up All Night” has already hit the airwaves, debuting last week on Los Angeles’ KROQ-FM station. The song was well-received, and fan demand was so high on the station’s website that it crashed servers. The single will be the first from the band’s forthcoming album “Neighborhoods,” the release date of which has yet to be revealed. The song is now available for streaming on the band’s website, blink182.com.

To celebrate the release, blink-182 launched a short promotion for its fans. On Saturday, July 16 from 9 p.m. to 12:02 a.m. -exactly 182 minutes- fans were able to log on to blink182.com and livenation.com to score another shot at $20 all-in tickets for upcoming 2011 Honda Civic Tour dates. These tickets come with no hidden fees, no service charges and no extra parking prices.
Blink-182 will be headlining the Honda Civic Tour along with My Chemical Romance. The tour begins Aug. 5, and will reach 38 U.S. cities before ending in L.A. in October. The band will also be touring throughout Canada.
In 2001, blink-182 launched the first Honda Civic Tour. The band, which consists of Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker, was riding on the success of its No. 1 album “Take Off Your Pants and Jacket.” The band has sold more than 30 million records worldwide since its debut in 1994, and each of its six albums have been certified either gold or double platinum, with 1999’s “Enema of the State” selling more than four million copies.
In 2005, the trio announced they were going on an indefinite hiatus. DeLonge then started the band Angels and Airwaves, which has released three studio albums. Hoppus and Barker created the band +44, which released one album.
The three musicians reunited four years later and began working on their new album.
