Alex Gaskarth: "The next Simple Creatures single will be Thanks (I Hate It)"

They’re the year’s most exciting new band, and following on from a whirlwind start to 2019 that’s seen Simple Creatures – the brainchild of All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth and blink-182’s Mark Hoppus – release debut EP Strange Love and headline a stage at Download Festival in June, the duo have revealed that there’s even more to come. Namely, their forthcoming second EP, Everything Opposite, which is due out in October. The news follows the release of the super-duo’s awesome single Special, which continues Alex and Mark’s foray into electronica-infused, experimental territory.

Despite being together for less than a year and only playing a handful of live shows, there’s a buzz around Simple Creatures that suggests the band will blossom into way more than a fleeting side-project. And as Alex reveals to Kerrang!, the vision he and Mark have for Simple Creatures extends far beyond that of playing a few gigs and releasing the odd song here and there. This is a proper band, and with plans drawn up to drop even more music and get back out on the road very soon, you better watch this space. As Alex and Mark have already proved, they’ve got something pretty, well, special here...
