Yesterday, the new blink-182 single "Bored To Death" leaked due to an online mishap. The song soon spread across the internet, and blink-182 moved the premier to 4.30pm PST on April 27th, instead of 7am PST on April 28th like originally planned. You can watch the lyric video for Bored To Death here
During their interview with KROQ they announced that the album would be called "California" and would be releasing on July 1st. You will be able to pre-order the album today, April 28th from Blink-182.com
The track list has already been released for the record
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!
