Boxing Day

Dogs Eat Dogs will be available from the 18/12/2012
blink-182’s new EP Dogs Eat Dogs will be available from the 18/12/2012.

It’s hard not to say something about this. I just can’t ignore it. The new blink-182 track, ‘Boxing Day’…

It was premiered last night on Zane Lowe’s Radio One show and I’ve got to be honest, I was a little surprised. I mean it’s an acoustic track for god’s sake, something that blink haven’t really done before. I can only think of a handful of their previous songs which are acoustic, and I don’t think anything they’ve done sounds quite like this one.

But let’s be honest, the song isn’t exactly great. It’s a little cliched with the structure and the lyrics aren’t fantastic, but that doesn’t make it completely unlistenable. There’s a couple of catchy little melodies in there to keep your ears happy and it’s good to hear the band trying something new, that doesn’t sound awful.

It will be interesting to see how the EP, Dogs Eat Dogs will sound after this sneak preview, and it’s even more exciting to think what else might be on the horizon for the trio. Let’s hope 2013 will see a new album that doesn’t sound like shit. There may still be hope yet…
