Tom DeLonge documentary premieres tonight

For weeks now Ernie Ball has been promoting and sharing clips from their documentary series "The Pursuit of Tone" where in this instance they are featuring former blink-182 member Tom DeLonge.  The documentary will debut in full tonight at 8pm ET on the Audience Network (DirecTV Ch. 239 and AT&T U-Verse Ch. 1114) where he will allegedly discuss in detail the origins of many blink-182 hits in addition to other anecdotes about the band, their breakups, side projects (Box Car Racer & Angels & Airwaves) and more. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E75D7DCIGo4

New Yorker: REVIVING THE POP-PUNK INNOCENCE OF BLINK-182

The New Yorker's Amanda Petrusich wrote a cool piece regarding blink-182's past and present, and how the band represents something inside ourselves that we can't bear to let go. Here's a passage: The grievances and pleasures Blink-182’s songs express—the dumbness of adults, how weird sex is, how cool jokes are, how lonesome life can be—are the kinds of things that get worried over most loudly from ages twelve to eighteen. It’s tempting to think that our emotions become more complex and multitudinous when we grow up. But most of us continue following those same early tracks, the ones we gouged in adolescence; the whole

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?!

“writing with matt is going great. he’s an amazing songwriter and easy to work with. very enthusiastic.”

“new music before any tour.”

AbsolutePunk interviews Chris Holmes

Posted on in +44, blink-182, Neighborhoods | Leave a comment

From Absolutepunk.com:

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.
