Blink-182 is indeed working on new music and Mark Hoppus confirmed this by posting a photo on Twitter with the caption, "Them blink-182 Demos." The picture shows recorded soundbites for an unnamed track. Set to headline this year's Reading and Leeds festival in England, the band hopes to release new material before the summer. In an interview with BBC Music
, Hoppus said, "We are coming with new material. We go into the studio after the holidays, and the goal is to have an album out in time for the festival."
After splitting with Interscope Records, Blink-182 is free of any label constraints. The band self-released their Dog Eating Dogs
EP in 2012; recorded in less than two months, the five-song collection sounded like a matured continuation of the group's 2004 self-titled release. Mixing electronic drum samples and acoustic guitars with the band's famous pop-punk sound, the EP offered exciting prospects that the band finally regained their chemistry after its 2009 reunion. With its members enjoying each other's company once again, we're looking forward to seeing how the momentum translates into a new album.
