It seems John Feldmann (producer, lead guitarist and vocalist from Goldfinger) has been in the studio with blink-182. Mark Hoppus posted this picture on his twitter stating –
“In the studio for 14 hours today and drank so much coffee I’ll never sleep again.”
Now potentially he could just be popping in – we’ve had other people be involved in the process without much information, like Tim Armstrong, but pictured like this it suggests he has more involvement. He could be producing the record, or mixing some of the tracks! who knows!
John Feldmann has done a lot of production work, with artists like The Used, Good Charlotte, All Time Low, Goldfinger, Mest, 5 Seconds of Summer and many others.

There’s been a lot of little snippets about the studio over the past week! We’ve had Travis posting snapchats from the studio –
We’ve had Mark talk about bass recording on his instagram account –
“I thought this would live safe and protected on a wall but now it has become the main recording bass for this album. Today I am play the bass. Fender Jaguar with Seymour Duncan quarter pound pickups in my flipped configuration. Ernie Ball super slinky bass strings. Mediocre bass player who drives it.”
We’ve had Travis’s drum tech posting a lot about being in the studio, equipment on the drums and just general positivity… not to mention lots of Star Wars stuff.
And finally today Travis posted an instagram post about being in the studio with Matt, Mark and Tim Armstrong. Which is something else to take away from this week of updates –
Tim Armstrong has been in the studio with them a lot. Now he could just be visiting for the week, he could be there because he’s helping out a little on the record… or maybe he’s producing it? we haven’t heard any specifics about a producer but we do know that the band wanted to go back to having a producer in the studio, and now that they have a new member it’s a whole new world in the studio so a producer seems like a damn good idea. What are your thoughts? why not discuss it with us on the forums!
So according to Travis Barker’s Drum tech, blink-182 have been in the studio recording for a full week. He posted the following message on his instagram –
Great week in the studio recording new stuff w/ @markhoppus@travisbarker @matttskiba @jamesisntcool@robertnoise & friends. Get ready 4 2016!!! #Blink182 #NewShitComing #OCHO 🎱♠️ #DrumDevil 😈 } ; ) >
On top of this, Matt Skiba also posted a picture of him with Tim Armstrong in the studio (shown above), stating that he was a special guest in the studio that week. Are we getting a Tim Armstrong guest spot on the record? Is he just playing guitar or singing also? who knows?!
On top of the good news of blink solidly recording this whole week, we also are happy to announce that the forum has returned! so discuss this news with us on our forums!
Well it’s been quite a while, but blink-182 seem to be back in the studio! Mark Hoppus posted a picture of Skiba playing guitar in the studio on his instagram stating “What’s up with this handsome beatnik playing guitars today?”.
Travis Barker had been promoting his book as well as doing a small tour with Antemasque, so there seems to be an obvious reason for the quiet front from the band – however this does not mean other things haven’t been happening! who knows.
