blink-182 "California" turns 3 years old

"California" is the seventh studio album by American punk pop band blink-182, released on July 1, 2016 through BMG as the band's only album on the label. Produced by John Feldmann, it is the first album by the band to feature Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba, who replaced former member Tom DeLonge. After touring and releasing the band's sixth album Neighborhoods (2011), it became difficult for the trio to record new material, due to DeLonge's side projects. After several repeated delays, DeLonge was fired from the band and Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker recruited Skiba in his place.
