Simple Creatures Premieres Debut Song “Drug”
- American rock band Blink-182's Mark Hoppus and American rock band All Time Low's Alex Gaskarth formed a new project Simple Creatures.
The duo released a debut song “Drug” with an accompanying lyric video. It was written by Mark Hoppus and Alex Gaskarth in collaboration with their producer and friend, Zakk Cervini (blink-182, Yungblud, All Time Low, 5SOS).
Mark Hoppus and Alex Gaskarth are long-time friends who came together to work on something a little different from their bands and Simple Creatures was born.
“‘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,” Mark Hoppus said in a statement. “I love the ratty guitar lead mixed with the thumping kick drum. Lyrically, the song is about being destroyed by the things you love.”
Alex Gaskarth said, “[It’s] about someone or something you want the most, being terrible for you...feels great until it doesn’t, but then you can’t stop,” he said. “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.”
Their debut EP will be released in March 2019. Stay tuned.
