The veteran punk rockers were a last-moment addition to Monday night’s Late Show with Stephen Colbert. And they didn’t miss a beat, delivering a live performance of new single “Bored to Death”.
Blink-182 stepped up for Colbert and Co. when Hollywood Vampires canceled their planned performance following Perry’s on-stage collapse Sunday night in Brooklyn.
“Bored to Death” is lifted from California, Blink-182’s seventh album and its first featuring vocalist/guitarist Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba after founding member Tom DeLonge left the band. The album has opened at No. 1 in the U.S. and U.K. (its first in that market).
“Bored to Death” hit No. 1 on the Alternative Songs chart dated July 9, marking the act’s first No. 1 on the survey since 2004. Tour dates kick off July 21 in San Diego.
