Blink-182 have released a new video for their track Home Is Such A Lonely Place.

They unveiled the original promo last month, which showed the trio of Mark Hoppus, Matt Skiba and Travis Barker preparing to leave their families behind to head out on tour.

The new video focuses on Skiba and includes footage of the singer and guitarist relaxing at home with friends and family, recording tracks in his studio, playing with his dog, riding his motorcycle and performing live with the band.

Blink-182 said of the track: “The video for Home Is Such A Lonely Place was probably the easiest we’ve ever filmed. All we had to do was be ourselves at home with our family and friends as we prepared to leave for tour.

“Consequently, it’s also our most personal and honest videos, and one of our favourites.”

Earlier this year, Blink-182 released a deluxe version of California which featured a total of 28 tracks, 11 of which were new, along with an acoustic version of Bored To Death.

Speaking about the decision to release an expanded edition of California, drummer Barker said: “We just felt like making more music so we jumped back in the studio.

“It started out as three or four songs – but we ended up with 12 that we were all excited about.”

Blink-182 are currently on tour across the UK, with their next show taking place today (July 5) at the First Direct Arena in Leeds.
