‘Drug’ is the name of the new song by Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 and Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low. Their new project, Simple Creatures, released a lyric video for the upbeat track.
“I love the ratty guitar lead mixed with the thumping kick drum. Lyrically, the song is about being destroyed by the things you love,” Hoppus explained in a statement. “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.”
The band announced on Instagram that the first EP will be out in March. Gaskarth says that the song is “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.“’
