blink-182 have been nominated for a Grammy. Yes, you read that correctly. A FREAKIN' GRAMMY! blink-182's back-to-their-roots record 'California' has been nominated for Best Rock Album ! In total blink-182 have received 10 nominations in the past for Kerrang!, MTV and Teens Choice awards (amongst others), but they have never been nominated for a Grammy - until now! THEY DID IT! Do you think blink-182 has what it takes to win this year? why not discuss it with us on our forums!

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',

blink-182 European Tour Dates!

blink-182 have previously mentioned that they would likely tour Europe next year during the summer. This seems to be true! as we are already starting to get blink-182 shows confirmed for the next year! blink-182 will be one of the headline acts for Nova Rock in Austria, the festival takes place from the 14th - 17th of June, 2017. Click here for info! They are also rumoured to be performing at Hurricane / Southside Festival (23rd - 25th of June) in Germany, which we will confirm soon. There are still some USA dates in December, but it looks like blink-182 are planning their big European tour! Who's excited?! Why


Travis Talks New Album On The Red Carpet

Posted on in +44, blink-182, Mark Hoppus, Matt Skiba, Travis Barker | Comments Off on Travis Talks New Album On The Red Carpet



On the red carpet of the Grammy’s, Travis Barker spoke to E! News about the up-coming blink-182 record.

The most notable things to take from this little interview is that the band have written 26 songs for the album, and that it’s going to be released this summer.

Now 26 songs written could include the 16 scrapped songs Travis referred to earlier in the week, but Travis also stated a while ago that there could be a double album, so who knows!

Why not speculate with us on our forums?!

AbsolutePunk interviews Chris Holmes

Posted on in +44, blink-182, Neighborhoods | Comments Off on AbsolutePunk interviews Chris Holmes


We recently had the chance to talk with Chris Holmes, the co-producer and engineer behind Blink-182‘s new album Neighborhoods. One of the goals of the interview was to look behind the scenes at how the album itself was recorded. I know a lot of people are interested in the techniques used and what the recording process itself was like for the first new blink songs in years. Huge thank you to Chris for doing this with us – make sure to follow him on twitter and check out his official website.

Could you outline what your role in recording Neighborhoods was? 

I served as a co-producer and engineer on the whole record (along with Critter), and as a mixer on “Heart’s All Gone Interlude”, “Heart’s All Gone” (album version), “Kaleidoscope”, “Fighting the Gravity”, and “Love is Dangerous”.

Mark blogged:

the return of blink-182 to the stage!!! t-mobile threw a big party at the paramount lot here in los angeles to launch their new sidekick, and they asked us to play. the whole thing was a secret. travis and dj-am were already scheduled to perform, and as a surprise ending, blink-182 came out at the very end and played a few songs. during the night, weezer performed and played the hits, along with a few covers. TRVS/DJ-AM dominated (as they always do), and then we played. to be honest, it was one of the best nights of my life. thanks to everyone who was there. thanks to t-mobile. and most of all, thanks to travis and tom. you are my brothers, and it feels amazing to share the stage with you once again.

here are some photos from throughout the day and night.
