blink182

KROQ has confirmed that they have heard new Blink-182 tracks and we should be getting the first track in April.

Lisa Worden at KROQ was played 8 songs from the unreleased album.

We can expect to hear the first song in April,” reveals Lisa Worden, KROQ’s Music Director

While she gives no song names, Lisa states that:

“I think any fan of Blink-182 is going to be ecstatic when they hear the music. I really do! It sounds like Blink-182 but it sounds like Blink in 2016. Lyrically it’s clever.”

She also says that many of the songs she heard were Mark singing and Matt adding harmonies

…it’s primarily Hoppus on vocals with Skiba adding harmonies. I didn’t know what to expect.”

The rest of the article is after the jump.

The music I heard rocks,” she says. “It sounds like Blink but it’s not anything that we’ve heard before. For fans of the band, they’re going to be super happy with it. It starts with Travis’ unmistakable drumming—it’s just that signature Blink sound—you immediately know who it is.

“As a fan of the band for the last 20 years, I was so happy with what I heard. It was the band I’ve loved all these years.”

Of the tracks that she previewed, Worden describes some as rock-leaning, reminiscent of Dude Ranch. There were a couple with really funny lyrics and I heard a ballad as well. “Mark singing the ballad was amazing. He sounded awesome.”

Worden also noted producer John Feldmann’s influence, which she heard throughout the recordings. “The songs sound really big. And that’s what John does,”
