UPDATE: Blink-182’s new album, California, will be released July 1—pre-order it now.

We all know the story by now: Tom DeLonge quit Blink-182 a little over a year ago, and instead of throwing in the towel, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker recruited Alkaline Trio vocalist/guitarist Matt Skiba to fill DeLonge’s sizeable shoes. Now, after more than a year of waiting, we have “Bored To Death,” the first new Blink-182 song to feature Skiba (and the first new Blink song period since 2012’s Dogs Eating Dogs EP). The track features both Hoppus and Skiba on lead vocals (though you won’t really hear the latter until the second verse). The song appears to be the first single from the trio’s new album California, due out later this year. Take a listen below (or click here), before the RIAA monster stomps these streams out of existence:
