After hinting at its existence a few times over the last few months, Blink-182 have officially confirmed the release of ‘California DLX’, the deluxe version of last year’s ‘California’. The album was the first output since Matt Skiba joined up with Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker, replacing founding member, Tom DeLonge.
With fresh input, it appears the trio are more active than ever as, yesterday, a tweet emerged from the band’s official Twitter account delivering the news many of their fans had been waiting for.
The band’s fans have long been used to waiting years between releases, so the fact that the new version contains 12 more songs in addition to the original 16 tracks is sure to be welcomed.
Along with ‘Parking Lot’, which you can hear above, the Deluxe disc contains 9 more unheard tracks plus an acoustic version of ‘Bored to Death’ and ‘Hey I’m Sorry’, a bonus track from the Japanese version of the original release.
News of the album comes ahead of an intensive Summer of touring with US and European dates occupying the three-piece from March through to the end of July.
The full track listing for the new material on ‘California DLX’ can be found below:
Good Old Days
Don’t Mean Anything
