It’s a great time to be a blink-182 fan.

The pop-punk legends dropped a surprisingly good album, One More Time… since reuniting the classic line-up of Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker and Tom DeLonge, headlined this year’s When We Were Young festival, and they’re touring. But what if they surprise-dropped two new songs?

Overnight, that’s precisely what the trio did, adding the tracks Cut Me Off and See You to the end of the One More Time… tracklist.

However, these songs aren’t currently on streaming services, and the only way you can hear them is by purchasing the digital album from the band’s website. You can order your copy here.

“SURPRISE! We added two new songs to the digital-only album exclusively at our webstore. Go grab it while you can,” a statement from the band read.

The two new songs followed a teasing tweet from Travis Barker, who wrote 12 hours before the new songs were released: “Wouldn’t it be cool if the album had 2 more songs” with the curious eyeballs emoji.

It’s “refreshing to hear the undeniable signature sound that only this line-up can produce. It’s tight, it’s bold, it’s unapologetically Blink-182,” The Music writer Anna Rose wrote in a review of One More Time….

Commenting on the “perfect” balance the band found between personal themes and their classic pop-punk sound, Rose concluded, “In spite of its unmistakeable sobriety, the classic boyish charm of Blink-182 still remains throughout One More Time, smatterings of shrieking vocals from DeLonge meeting Hoppus’ docile tone, as drummer Barker continues as the pillar that shapes the final sound. 

“While Blink-182 certainly capture the spirit of their recalcitrant youth, reliving those times in tracks that are on par with some of their biggest hits, it’s the resolve of their maturity, the conclusions drawn from life experiences and second chances that make One More Time a welcome return to form.”

Witnessing the band in even greater form was The Music reviewer Tamara May, who caught the band’s headlining set at the Las Vegas When We Were Young festival. “The legends are true performers, and given it was the best hour and a half of my life, the Australian tour next year is going to be a must-see experience, especially if they bring out all of the pyrotechnics again,” May wrote.

Blink-182 are hitting Australia with a whopping 15-date tour in 2024 with support from Rise Against.
