blink-182 big announcement November 6th?!

blink-182 are making a 'very special announcement' on Sunday November 6th, from 7pm. As this is the BBC, this probably means 7pm UK time, so for you USA fans thats 2pm EST or 11am PST. Now there's a very high probability that the announcement is the 'official' unveiling of the European tour. There has already been a few dates semi-announced for this, including Download Festival in France, which suggests they'll also be performing at the UK Download festival as well. It being the European tour would also make sense because they're announcing it on UK radio, and the image above (and posted in magazines) randomly states '2017',

Now knowing they’re already 5 tracks in, and Travis Barker sneakily suggesting a tour next summer, maybe this album will be finished sooner than we all thought?

In the most recent podcast from Hi My Name Is Mark (Episode 7), Mark Hoppus gives a brief update about the blink-182 recording situation. He states that they have been writing as well as demoing and that a handful of demo tracks are already done. He also states that it’s a lot of fun!

None of this is particularly new, but it is actual confirmation of them demoing together. All we’ve really seen so far is Instagram shots so to hear it from Mark himself is fantastic news!

He was also given a brand new, custom bass which looks very nice indeed!

What do you think of this small but exciting development? why not tell us on our forums!
