Hoppus And Barker “Waiting” For New Blink-182 Album

Written by Tom Williams on April 26, 2014

The delay in famed punk rock group Blink-182 heading back to the studio to record album number seven has caused fans and followers some frustration, and now the band’s bassist and co-vocalist Mark Hoppus has implied that Blink guitarist and fellow vocalist Tom DeLonge may be the reason for the delay.

Taking to his Twitter account, Hoppus told fans of a new musical project he has undertaken, but first stated that, “Travis [Barker] and I have waited for Blink-182 to get back into the studio this past year”, not including DeLonge’s name in that claim.

Detailing his new project, called Nothing and Nobody, Hoppus tweeted, “I started working on a project with my friend Chris [Holmes], who has worked on Grammy award-winning albums, and been my collaborator and confidant for many years.”

“At this point we have nearly 25 songs in various stages of completion,” he said, before sharing their first piece of work (below) and foreshadowing an album release. “The first project we worked on is a remix of a Nova Rockafeller song, and in the not-too-distance future, will release our album.”

“More to come. Watch this space,” Hoppus concluded.

Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker said in March this year that the band have to “get their shit together” if they are to record another full-length release. Hoppus’ Twitter comments seem to agree with that proposition.

Recently, DeLonge has been working on the next Angels And Airwaves record, which is expected to be released towards the end of the year.
