Blink 182 are bootlegging the bootleggers. Their new video for "Up All Night," uploaded to YouTube on August 2, is built from snippets of unauthorized YouTube vids which have used blink music in the past. The band calls it "The Blink-182 Film Festival You Didn't Know You Entered."

"To launch our first single in eight years," says the band, "AT&T helped us search YouTube for every instance of fans using our music without our permission. And then we rewarded them for it. This film is made out of clips from all those videos."

"Thanks for being a fan."

At this writing, the video has already been viewed more than 246,000 times, with around 2,800 "likes" and only 78 "dislikes."

The current blink reunion kicked off in 2009, when the band announced that it would indeed regroup to record and tour. At the time, DeLonge was the only member still living within San Diego. By early 2010, he was selling his house in Rancho Santa Fe, the same neighborhood where Hoppus had previously lived.

During the summer 2010 reunion tour, Mark Hoppus joked about performing a sexual act on President Barack Obama during an August 27 concert in Leeds, England. Hoppus told the crowd “I’m going to go down on Barack Obama.”

In a later report, Spinner columnist Julian Marszalek wrote "If that is the case, that won’t be the only incident of Blink-182 sucking.”

In late November, 2010, the band announced their first UK arena tour in over seven years. Around the same time, Tom DeLonge’s next Airwaves and Angels album (and film) was bumped up by almost a year.

In early 2011, Mark Hoppus said of the upcoming Blink reunion album, “I’d say we’re working with the better part of ten or so songs at this point.”

Hoppus then responded to angry backlash over the band canceling its 2011 European summer tour. “We don’t want to be one of those bands who rests on former success and keep playing the same songs over and over – we want to tour new songs...When we booked the tour last year, we were confident that we would have the new album out before the summer. Turns out we were mistaken as the album is taking longer than we thought and won’t be out till later this year.”

This month, the band is hitting the U.S. highway for the 10th annual Honda Civic Tour (blink played the first Honda tour in 2001). With My Chemical Romance in tow, they began the 40-plus date nationwide trek on August 5.

“We deliver[ed] the new album to the label on July 31, so it will be coming out during the tour,” Mark Hoppus posted on Facebook.

Their October 15 San Diego show has been rescheduled to October 6. An audio-only file of their new single “Up All Night” from their upcoming Neighborhoods album (drops September 27) is streaming at http://www.blink182.com.
