Blink-182 Release New 'Neighborhoods' Track, 'Heart's All Gone': Listen
After releasing "Up All Night," their first new single in seven years, last month, Blink-182 slyly issued another track from their forthcoming "Neighborhoods" album online on Thursday (Aug. 4). "Heart's All Gone" was posted on a new website that guitarist Mark Hoppus linked to from his Google Plus account; if you click Command + A, the track and its lyrics magically appear.
If "Up All Night" showcased a different, more arena-ready side of Blink, "Heart's All Gone" returns the trio to its pop-punk roots, with Travis Barker's furious percussion flanked by driving electric and bass. The lyrics take shots at a souring romance set in Las Vegas: "Take off the gloves/We fell in love by the side of the road/This desert will break you down," sings Hoppus.
Earlier this week, Blink-182 unveiled the special music video for "Up All Night," which turns YouTube clips set to the band's music into a loving montage. "Neighborhoods," set to hit stores on Sept. 27, will be preceded by the 2011 Honda Civic Tour, in which Blink will hit the road with My Chemical Romance beginning tonight in Holmdel, N.J.
