So we think that we’ve discovered time-travel and woken up in 2005.
Remember 2005, when it was pop punk mania? When all you thought about was teen angst, running away, and pizza. 2005 was the year of Green Day, Blink-182, Sum 41, All-American Rejects, and of course the supreme of them all, My Chemical Romance.
What if we told you that all of those bands, are releasing new music? THIS YEAR. Allegedly. You’d probably wonder what year it is, much like we am. So let’s walk through this together.
According to Kerrang! radio host Sophie K, Green Day is set to release new music July 19th at 5pm. There are no exact details yet, but we’re sure hoping. Green Day last released music back in 2016 with album Revolution Radio. Hear Sophie talk about new Green Day music here.
Blink-182 have a jam packed 2019. After already headlining the last Warped Tour and starting their own tour with Lil Wayne, Blink has an album set to release later this summer as well as a separate EP following the albums release. You can buy tickets to see Blink in a city near you here.
Back in April, Sum 41 announced their new album Order in Decline, which is set to release July 19th. Since then they have released four new singles from that record; “Out for Blood”, “A Death in the Family”, “Never There”, and “45”. You can pre-order Sum 41‘s new album here.
The All-American Rejects
Alas! After a teaser back in 2017, The All-American Rejects have announced that they are dropping an EP next week, on July 16th. Check out the announcement tweet here.
My Chemical Romance
Now, this is probably as true as my tinder bio but…. Joe Jonas stated in an interview that when rehearsing for his upcoming tour MCR was “apparently rehearsing next to us.” Now like I said, this is all he said she said stuff. Each member is working on their own stuff at the moment, but who’s to say they can’t take a break from that too. The band has been playing with our emotions since the break-up back in 2013. I think it’s safe to say that all we deserve and want in life is an MCR reunion.
