Blink 182 released two alternative videos of “Home Is Such a Lonely Place” this past week. The videos come only a month after the official video for the single was released.
In the video, Blink 182 shares personal views of Travis Barker, Mark Hoppus, and Matt Skiba all preparing to leave home on tour. Full-length videos focused on the perspectives of both Matt Skiba and Mark Hoppus have been released.
These videos capture an organic atmosphere, creating a revealing and natural video of home life for each member of the band. Skiba’s video shows him hanging out in the studio and playing with his dog, while Hoppus’ focuses on him spending time with his wife and teaching his son how to play the guitar.
"It's the most honest video we've ever made because it's us being ourselves with our families," Hoppus said in an interview with NME.
Travis Barkers video has not yet been released but is expected to be soon.
Watch both videos below:
