Blink-182 Reveal Title Of Brand-New EP, 'Dogs Eating Dogs'

20 November 2012
Blink-182 are kicking off their "independent" era with a bang ... and a bark.

On December 18, they'll release dogs eating dogs, (all lowercase ... how un-Gaga of them), a five-song EP that marks their first release since splitting from their longtime home at the Universal Music Group, and the first new music from the band since 2011's Neighborhoods album.

Dogs is available for pre-order beginning Monday (November 19) through Blink's official site, and will be released both as a digital-only EP and in three festive (and decidedly Blink) bundles: A deluxe "Santa's Lap Package," which comes with a limited-edition print by artist Brandon Heart, a special Blink holiday T-shirt, wrapping paper and a card, a "Nice Package," which features a holiday-edition fleece (and both the wrapping paper and card) and a "Naughty Package," which comes with the T-shirt and card.

Last week, in an email to MTV News, Blink bassist Mark Hoppus spoke about creating dogs eating dogs on the fly and their newfound freedom, and hinted that there are even more projects from the band on the horizon.

"This kind of agility is exactly what we were looking for, post-label. We have ideas for songs, we get into a studio and put the ideas together, grind hard, chase that paper, and weeks later we release the songs on our own," he wrote. "I spent last week in the studio with Travis and Tom. It was great, ideas falling everywhere. Lots of long hours spent on five new songs. ... The band is in a great place creatively. Having everyone in the same room at the same time makes all the difference for us."
