Blink 182 reveal new album details

A day after the announcement of Blink 182’s UK arena tour for 2011, band member Mark Hoppus has revealed details of their new album and its potential release date on his personal blog.

In a post entitled ‘Blink 182 Studio Update’, Hoppus explains that:

“In rough terms, I’d say we’re working with the better part of ten or so songs at this point.”

“Yesterday I worked on the basics of an uptempo, catchy progression; kind of in the vein of Wendy Clear or Going Away to College.  We’ll see how it comes together…  The Americana, country-type song that I’ve written about before is now in its third incarnation, and I think it gets better with every change.”

Hoppus also divulged more information on the band’s highly anticipated upcoming release, which will be their first since the self-titled album back in 2003, saying:

“And finally, the best news in this post.  We have a date for the completion of the album.  We want to deliver the record in April or May, for release very soon afterward.  That’s our goal.”
