Dogs Eating Dogs is available for pre-order from Blink-182.com and is set for release on December 18th.
An interview with Billboard explains more on the EP:
“dogs eating dogs” will be nothing like “Neighborhoods,” but it’s also not just a return to the band’s early releases, DeLonge told Billboard. The band is back together, working together in a way that they hadn’t been, even for years before the hiatus. “We’re connected and laughing and making jokes and making fun of each other, and really having strong debates whether or not we should have a whole chorus about penises,” DeLonge said.
He continued, “I mean that’s what Blink was always good at: Taking a great song and making it into a dick joke”¦ But we never did that on ‘Neighborhoods.’ There was no laughing on ‘Neighborhoods.’ There were no dick jokes.”
The sound on “dogs eating dogs” is also a “more organic mixture” of the three members’ very different preferences, DeLonge explains. There’s even a track with hip-hop elements that he says is “very Travis,” something the band has never done before.

The video follows the story of young, troubled lovers in a psych ward who break free for an unforgettable night together. “It’s that idea of one person trying to help another person to live life,” explained director Issac Rentz. “It’s almost like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off in that they have this one night to have a great time together.”
