Album guide

Dogs Eating Dogs is the second EP by Blink-182. Self-produced by the band, it is the first recording to be self-released after their split from Interscope/DGC in October, 2012. On December 9th, 2012, Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus confirmed via Twitter that the lead single is titled Boxing Day.


After Neighborhoods, the band felt the recording methods used were inadequate. Tom DeLonge, who originally advocated the method of using separate studios/e-mails to dictate the majority of the recording, admitted that it led to a loss of unity. Travis Barker noted that, "there's some songs on there that I love, but for the most part it was disconnected." In addition, Barker was still recovering from his 2008 plane accident and was still healing. During the band's 20th Anniversary Tour in Europe, Barker was the first to approach DeLonge and Hoppus with the idea of immediately returning to the studio in the fall. "It was like three days after Halloween and Tom was like, 'Dude, we should do that!'" They entered the studio on November 5th. They found a flexibility to do things their own way without label intervention and it inspired creativity and agility. Mark Hoppus described: "It was great, ideas falling everywhere. Lots of long hours spent on five new songs."
