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

Street Art

Saw this street art at 3rd Street and Robertson this morning. Is this Banksy? Someone else? Is this new, or has it been there forever and I’m just late on it? It may not matter anyway as it looks like they were about to cover it up…

Tweet: Mark In The Studio Today

Posted on in blink-182 | 4 Comments

Mark’s tweeting from the studio. We’ll update this post with his blink related tweets all day:

Yep, I’m gonna be in the studio today, playing some bass and getting all “lalalalala” and whatnot.

Working on t-shirt design ideas today as well. I gotta leave and get to that studio.

About to cut a bass track. Wish me luck!

Bass track = done. Moving on to vocal idea now. Aaahhs instead of ooooos.

Nope. Oooos were better than aaaahs. Recorded 6 vocals doing a 3-part harmony. Somewhere Brian Wilson senses a disturbance in the force.
