Time to bust out your old Vans and your Hurley t-shirt and those ear gauges your mom (correctly) said were a bad idea: Blink-182 will have a new album out soon! And by soon, I mean soon-ish. According to bassist Mark Hoppus, the pop punk trio are currently working on a batch of songs for the album, which should be out in a year. "A full year!" you say? Well, if you live near a computer or in Australia, worry not; in the meantime Blink will release an iTunes session and go on tour Down Under.
Hoppus also weighed in on the current state of music. The bassist told NME: "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."
It's a safe bet that with the new album will come a new tour, which will make at least one kid happy.
What kind of time warp?! '90s (and early 2000s) rock icons Fred Durst, Scott Weiland and Mark McGrath get photobombed by '70s icon Wayne Newton, aka Mr. Las Vegas. This should be all these guys' Christmas cards.
