Blink-182, the punk pop favorites of a generation known for such hits as “Dammit (Growing Up),” “What’s My Age Again,” are back with their highly anticipated seventh studio album, “California,” their first album featuring new guitarist and singer Matt Skiba (formerly of Alkaline Trio, replacing Tom DeLonge), set for release July 1 on BMG.  The band premiered their brand new single, “Bored To Death,” this morning, April 28, where they also revealed details behind their summer tour. The tour, promoted by Live Nation, will kick off on Friday, July 22 in San Diego and will take the band to nearly 50 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada. A Day To Remember will join the tour as special guests on all dates while All American Rejects and All Time Low will join on select dates.

The newly-announced Blink-182 concert joins a Labor Day weekend at the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion that also includes a Sunday night concert from Rascal Flatts. For more information, visit waterfrontconcerts.com.
