BLINK-182 TO BEGIN RECORDING BEFORE YEAR'S END

Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus told Danish site Rockfreaks that the punk trio will begin working on their new album before the year is out. Although the initial plan was for the band to start recording earlier this year, Hoppus explained, "We were going to start recording at the beginning of this year, but there were some things happening in some of our personal lives that prevented us from getting in the studio, so now we are getting in the studio at the end of this year instead. We have the beginning of song ideas at this point, and we are really just excited to get into the studio and have an album out sooner rather than later."

Blink's last full-length album, 2011's Neighborhoods, was its first new effort in seven years.

It was recorded with Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker working in Los Angeles, while guitarist and singer Tom DeLonge did his parts at home in San Diego.

Hoppus addressed that, saying, "Hopefully we can all mostly be in the same room. I am actually moving back to Los Angeles at the end of this summer, and then all of us will be in Southern California so it will be a lot easier for us to be in the same place at the same time."

Blink-182 reunited in 2009 after a five-year hiatus.

DeLonge recently apologized for making fans wait for a new album in a message he posted on Instagram, saying, "Sorry for the wait."
