Blink-182's recent single, 'Dance With Me', is more than just another track. It's a tribute to the iconic New York rock band, the Ramones.
The song offers a modern twist on the signature Blink sound, featuring a compelling guitar riff, robust drum beats, and memorable lyrics like: “Olé, Olé. Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé / Yeah / We’re doing it all night long“.
The Visual Tribute
The Malloys directed the video, presenting it as a heartfelt nod to the renowned New York punk scene and, more specifically, the Ramones – a band Blink-182 has always admired. The video showcases Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, and Travis Barker donning Ramones-inspired outfits, recreating some of the band's unforgettable moments, including their performances at the CBGB.
Journey of 'Dance With Me'
This track is the fourth single from Blink-182's anticipated album, 'One More Time…'. It joins the ranks of previously released songs like ‘Edging‘, ‘One More Time’, and ‘More Than You Know’.
A Look at the Upcoming Album
The album 'One More Time…' was crafted during the period between the band's reunion tours and saw Barker taking the reins as the producer. This album is significant as it's the first time the original Blink trio – Hoppus, DeLonge, and Barker – have collaborated on a full-length album since their 2011 release, ‘Neighborhoods’.
DeLonge's Journey Post-Blink
Tom DeLonge took a hiatus from Blink-182 in 2015, shifting his focus to exploring the mysteries of the universe and dedicating time to his other band, Angels & Airwaves. Meanwhile, Hoppus and Barker continued the Blink legacy, releasing albums like 2016’s ‘California’ and 2019’s ‘Nine’, collaborating with guitarist Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio.
Fans can look forward to 'One More Time…' dropping on October 20, available via Colombia. Preorder here.
