Mark Hoppus and Alex Gaskarth are Simple Creatures

Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus and All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth are using the downtime from both bands to create new music as Simple Creatures.

Hoppus and Gaskarth have debuted the first song ‘Drug’ in collaboration with their producer and friend, Zakk Cervini (blink-182, Yungblud, All Time Low, 5SOS).

“’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,” Hoppus commented.

Gaskarth said: “’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.“

Simple Creatures will release their debut EP through BMG in March.
