Blink is a pop rock band from Ireland, NOT to be confused with American pop-punk band blink-182!

The band's name comes from the song "Iceblink Luck" by the Cocteau Twins, a favorite song of drummer Barry Campbell. San Diego California based blink-182 originally also performed under the name "Blink," even releasing several demos and their debut studio album Cheshire Cat under this name. However, the threat of a legal dispute with the Irish band resulted in their name change to Blink-182 and the re-release of Cheshire Cat under their current moniker.

As of 2005, Blink had released 3 studio albums; however they recently released an album in April 2020 called A Demo of the Universe which essentially serves as a "best of" compilation, and contains 25 previously released tracks.

Their 1994 debut album A Map of the Universe by Blink was a Top Ten in the Irish album charts.

Their 2nd album, 1998's The End is High, was a Billboard album of the week.

Their 2004 release Deep inside the Sound of Sadness was nominated for Irish Album of the Year at the 2005 Meteor Music Awards, losing out to Snow Patrol.

The band are also notable for being the first band pictured on a telephone card. A run of 202,000 were produced in 1993. This included a smaller limited run of 2000 cards, which were used as membership cards for the band's fan club. All the cards read 'Limited Edition' despite being produced in great quantities.

Between 1999 and 2004, Blink opened shows for Mercury Rev, Moby, Lloyd Cole, The Cardigans, Mark Geary and blink-182.

In June 2013, lead singer/guitarist Dermot Lambert released his debut solo album Tiny, featuring the singles Twinkle Twinkle Satellite, Hey Sean and Fade Into the Morning Sun.
