The grandfathers of pop punk storm the scene once again.
It’s been nearly twenty years since the Californian trio burst into music with a humorous approach, and since then, they’ve lost a vital band member in Tom DeLonge. This time around they’ve replaced him and have gone full circle.
‘Bored To Death’ opens with a screeching guitar riff that’s scarily familiar to the one in ‘Adam’s Song’, but it doesn’t sound reused or repetitive – it’s nice to feel like you’re back to the old days.
‘She’s Out Of Her Mind’ revisits the band’s playful side with lyrics like ‘She’s got a black shirt, black skirt and Bauhaus stuck in her head’, and this record seems to be the perfect song for a pop punk play day.
