Mark Hoppus and Alex Gaskarth announce new band Simple Creatures
After the continuing success in both bands, Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 and Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low have joined forces to create the collaboration that is Simple Creatures.
The duo announced the formation by replacing their social media icons with the band's logo, creating confusion within both of their fanbases. Gaskarth cleared up the rumours with an Instagram post, stating that he had been "quietly making music" with Hoppus for a while, and invited fans to join them for the ride.
As if it weren't enough for fans to comprehend, Simple Creatures then went on to announce the release of the debut single, Drug.
Whilst not sounding much like either of the two's prior projects, Drug encompasses Hoppus' iconic "na na na"s, and Gaskarth's catchy yet insightful lyrics. Conveying the feelings of having someone or something that you know is bad for you, Drug tells the tale of when it stops feeling so good.
With plans for the debut EP to be released in March, take a look at the new lyric video for Drug below, and check out their website!
