Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus And All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth Reveal New Band Simple Creatures

Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus has teamed up with All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth to form a new band called Simple Creatures.

The two revealed the new project along with their debut single, “Drug,” earlier today on Instagram (Jan. 24). The song is taken from their upcoming debut EP, which is expected to release in March.

Speaking to Kerrang! about the new track, Gaskarth said “Drug is a song about someone or something you want the most, being terrible for you… Feels great until it doesn’t, but then you can’t stop,” adds Alex. “In the studio it felt immediately like it was the song that best defined Simple Creatures; it’s gritty, grimy, rooted in the musicality we both came up on, but with a twist that takes it away from anything we’ve worked on before.”
