blink-182 is back at it again! The world-dominating pop-punk trio has just released their bouncy new track “Dance With Me,” marking the third single off of their upcoming album, ONE MORE TIME…. Combining their quintessential blend of loud guitars, non-stop drum fills, and rebellious vocals, the song brings blink-182 back to its roots through a feel-good and danceable arrangement.

The music video for “Dance With Me” is a love letter to the iconic American punk rock band, The Ramones. Dressed in their finest leather jackets and black wigs à la Ramones leader Joey Ramone, blink-182 parodies the band’s iconic 1981 interview on The Tomorrow Show and their music video for “I Wanna Be Sedated.” From being surrounded by a cast of ballerinas, nurses, and other dynamic characters to performing the track in a gritty punk club littered with graffiti and band stickers, blink-182 reflects on the punk-rock scene before their time. It pays homage to a band that opened doors for the punk, and consequently, the pop-punk community and showcases blink-182’s incredible footprint on the genre.

“What’s up with the get-ups? The jeans, the jackets, is it not nice to look nice?” an uptight interviewer asks the band in the video trailer.

“I think we look super cool, we’re dressed like The Ramones,” Mark Hoppus says enthusiastically.

In celebration of their first record with Tom DeLonge since 2011’s Neighborhoods, blink-182 is hitting the road for some international dates this fall and in 2024. They will be performing for fans in Europe, Australia, and Mexico, gracing many arena stages for multiple nights in a row. The last four dates of the run are in Mexico City, marking the band’s first appearance in the country since 2004. This World Tour is a special one to the band and a powerful reminder of the influence they continue to have on pop culture and the rock scene as we know it.

But that’s not all! Fans in the States can catch Mark, Tom, and Travis at the second-annual When We Were Young Fest in Las Vegas, NV. The idobi team will be there, and we are so incredibly stoked.
