Wow today is just full of surprises! First the new Weezer album, and now a new band?! Yep, blink-182 bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus has started another band with All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth, The band is called Simple Creatures, and Hoppus promised an EP release this Spring. The new band already have a song they want us to hear. You can take a listen to “Drug” below!
Hi. We are Simple Creatures. We just woke up from a very long sleep. We have so much to tell you, but for the moment, all we can say is that we are glad you are here.
We made music for you …

Has this band really been in the works for nearly a decade? Also, what does this mean for blink-182? It doesn’t appear that they are going anywhere seeing as they are supposed to release a new album later this year. Travis Barker has had side projects over the years and Matt Skiba is still in Alkaline Trio, so yeah, we don’t think blink is going away.
