Did Blink-182's Mark Hoppus and Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump Just Collaborate?

Blink-182 meets Fall Out Boy? That merging of the pop-punk universes could be in the cards, at least if Mark Hoppus' Instagram is any indication. On Sunday, February 14, the Blink veteran  posted a photo of himself, FOB frontman Patrick Stump, and producer John Feldmann with the caption "Dadrock 2016," fueling speculation of a possible collaboration, Alternative Press reports.

Feldmann, a veteran producer for bands like All Time Low and Five Seconds of Summer, is producing Blink-182's new LP, tentatively slated for summer 2016. This will be Blink's first album without recently departed singer-guitarist Tom Delonge – and their first with Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba.

In a recent interview with KROQ, Barker updated fans on the album's positive progress. "Just having someone like Matt (Skiba) who’s in the studio everyday is great," he said. "You got to show up, that’s the first part. It’s just exciting. It's a new chapter and we’re not striving for mediocrity, we're looking to kill it. We're gonna make a great album."
