What happens when a member from two of your favorite bands team up and create a new project?
Bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 and lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Alex Gaskarth have come together for a new project that they are calling Simple Creatures. Recently they released a lyric video for a catchy new single “Drug” and it has us already wanting more from the duo.
Gaskarth posted on Instagram filling everyone in on the project, “my good friend @markhoppus and I have been quietly making music together for a little while now and we’re finally ready to share it with ya.” He also included the meaning behind some of the lyrics, “[It’s] about someone or something you want the most, being terrible for you…feels great until it doesn’t, but then you can’t stop.”
