Some fans were excited about the tracks old-school feel: “Tom sounds like old Tom!”

“Tom’s voice, Mark’s bass and Travis’ beat together again is everything! Again and again, come again and again!” wrote a fourth fan.

“”Edging” by Blink 182 is a welcome return for the boys. It’s catchy and it’s fun. Tom sounds rejuvenated in the first verse, Mark sounds on point throughout and Travis surprises no one by smacking the skins effortlessly. It’s a groove, and I dig it. More please,” reviewed another fan on Twitter.

Speaking about his production work on the track, Barker said: “I wanted to imagine as a listener what I wanted to experience and at the same time as a band member what we wanted to make and say and most importantly how it would sound production wise in 2022.”
