Blink-182 have unveiled the festive song, 'Boxing Day'.

Scroll down to listen to the low-key track, which is taken from the trio's forthcoming 'Dogs Eating Dogs' EP, set for release on December 18.

Earlier this autumn, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker said that the band have written a "very folky" new song, which would appear to be 'Boxing Day'.

Speaking to Billboard about the 'Dogs Eating Dogs' EP, Tom DeLonge of the band said: "It sounds like a very progressive punk-rock band. It's prog-rock and punk all coming together and it's very modern and relevant."

He added: "We're connected and laughing and making jokes and making fun of each other, and really having strong debates whether or not we should have a whole chorus about penises."

The pop punk trio will be putting out the EP in three different packages, including the Santa's Lap package, which includes a t-shirt, limited edition poster, wrapping paper and a Christmas card, the Nice package, which includes a hoodie, wrapping paper and card and the Naughty package, which includes a shirt and card.

Earlier this year, Barker promised that "the best is yet to come" from the band. The trio released 'Neighborhoods' in 2011 and then parted ways with major label Interscope Records earlier this year. They start work on their new album next year.
