Blink-182 fans in America rejoice!
Last month, we reported that Blink-182 had plans to do a five-date series of U.K. concerts, but NOW fans stateside can also be excited, because Blink has started talking about their upcoming album as well!
Here's what Mark Hoppus had to say about it:
"We've gone through a lot of really heavy stuff over the past few years. … There's plenty of heavy stuff to write about. I think in moments it will [be dark]. We're still just barely getting into the whole writing process. We have about three or four songs done. I wouldn't say it's going to be a dark record; I think it's really an expansive record. There's stuff that sounds like what we were doing on the last Blink record, and there's stuff that sounds like what we were doing 10 years ago and stuff that we've never done before."
And more from Mark:
"There's going to be a new record, tours, the whole deal. We're in the studio pounding it out right now, and it's going really good. It's been so great to be back in the studio with Tom and Travis creating a new album. We can't wait to get it out there."
Pretty crazy to hear that they're back! We'll be VERY curious to see what they do with this new, EXPANSIVE record!
Are U excited for the return of Blink-182?
