Los Campesinos! have covered Blink-182‘s ‘Going Away To College’.

Click below to listen to the Welsh band’s version of the song, the original of which features on the US pop-punk band’s 1999 album, ‘Enema of the State’. The band performed the cover during a session for Sirius XMU.


Los Campesinos! will be playing a run of festivals this summer, including Live At Leeds, Stag & Dagger and Truck Festival in the UK as well as Low Festival in Benidorm, Spain in July.

Meanwhile, Blink-182 have seemingly confirmed that work has begun on their new album, with Mark Hoppus of the band posting on Twitter a screenshot of a new song being demoed earlier this month. Blink-182 had previously revealed their plan to release a new album in time for headlining Reading and Leeds Festivals alongside Arctic Monkeys this summer. Speaking to Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 last year about the headline slot and plans for new music, Hoppus said: “We are coming with new material. We go into the studio after the holidays, and the goal is to have an album out in time for the festival.”

The punk-pop band released their most recent album and their sixth studio LP, ‘Neighborhoods’, in 2009. Blink-182’s latest release was the ‘Dogs Eating Dogs’ EP in December 2012. The band split from their label Interscope in 2011.
