Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker of Blink 182 performs during the Firefly Music Festival on June 19, 2016 in Dover, Del.

The band released Matt Skiba's alternate cut on Monday.

Last month Blink-182 shared a heartfelt video for "Home Is Such a Lonely Place" that offered fans an intimate look into the rock trio's personal lives. Now the band has shared an alternate video solely featuring singer and bassist Mark Hoppus and his family. 

Whereas in the first video, director Jason Goldwatch captured a day in the life of each band member, each group member seems to be getting a personal cut to compliment that piece. Hoppus' video follows one from Monday featuring guitarist and singer Matt Skiba, who replaced co-founder Tom DeLonge in 2015. 

Here, we see Hoppus spending time at home with his family, calling his mom on FaceTime, teaching his son to play guitar, eating donuts and more. It's basically typical dad stuff, with the exception of the massive rock show that closes the clip. Meanwhile, in Akiba's video, he's working in the studio, hanging out with friends at home, motorcycling and giving his dog some love. 

While some of the footage from each was used in the first, official video, these each offer a closer look inside the rockers' lives. Presumably, a Travis Barker video will follow soon.
