More Details On New Blink 182 Album

Written by Kiel Egging on October 16, 2012

Blink 182 bass player Mark Hoppus has shed a few more details on Blink 182’s new album – saying that the trio have started writing a couple of tracks.

Fresh from bandmate Tom DeLonge posting a picture alluding to a new album on Instagram last week, Hoppus has told NME that a follow-up on last year’s Neighbourhoods should surface sometime next year.

“Early next week I go back to Los Angeles to record an iTunes session for Blink-182, and we’re starting to write the new record right now.”

“We’re going to tour Australia in February with Blink… [so the] proper tour and the new album probably won’t happen for about a year.”

Hoppus said that he hoped the album will fill the void following a North American summer that had very little “great new music”.

“I’ve kind of been in a dead-zone lately… I feel like this summer was kind of devoid of a lot of great new music. The new Matt & Kim album is coming out, I’m excited about that, the Mumford and Sons album I like… but, yeah, other than that it’s been kind of a dry summer.”

Blink 182 will be in Australia in February for the Soundwave Festival, and last week they confirmed some sideshows in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.  More details on those shows here.
