The most recent video from 2011’s Neighborhoods, Blink-182’s first new album in eight years which debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, is for the hit single “After Midnight.”  Says singer bassist Mark Hoppus of the video: “We wanted something that was a little troubled because the song is a troubled love song.  Isaac (Rentz, the director) came up with this idea of a guy and a girl trapped inside of an insane asylum.  They find one another, they escape themselves for the evening and they have a night of reckless romance before they get put back into their cells.”
Hoppus, guitarist Tom DeLonge and drummer Travis Barker reunited in 2009 after a tumultuous four-year hiatus.  Neighborhoods marks Blink-182’s sixth studio effort, following three consecutive platinum-plus albums.
