Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 and Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low have combined their pop-punk brains and formed a supergroup, Simple Creatures, and they’ve launched it along with a debut single, ‘Drug’.
Speaking of the song, Hoppus explained that it a fitting introduction to the band.
“‘Drug’ is always the first song we play people when introducing them to Simple Creatures, so it only makes sense that it’s the first single. I love the ratty guitar lead mixed with the thumping kick drum. Lyrically, the song is about being destroyed by the things you love.”
Gaskarth also pitched in with his own comments.
“‘Drug’ is a song about someone or something you want the most, being terrible for you… feels great until it doesn’t, but then you can’t stop. In the studio it felt immediately like it was the song that best defined Simple Creatures; it’s gritty, grimy, rooted in the musicality we both came up on, but with a twist that takes it away from anything we’ve worked on before.”

The pair have also confirmed that there will be a yet-to-be-titled debut EP being released in March 2019.
More details will be confirmed as it develops.
