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 !

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.

Spin Magazine just wrote an article about how we should receive some of the $787 billion stimulus package to stop recording and “save them the trouble of reforming for one subpar album.” Come on, one subpar album? More like “SEVERAL TERRIBLY subpar albums…”

Rock Stars Benefit from Obama Stimulus Plan

SPIN’s Ellen Carpenter tells the President how to spend some of that $787 billion, as he prepares to address Congress tonight. :

HUSH MONEY/MEDICAL BILLS


Beneficiary: Blink-182
Cost to taxpayers: $3 million
The last thing Tom DeLonge, Travis Barker, and Mark Hoppus want to do is get back together. They just made that dour comeback announcement at the Grammys because Travis has medical bills to pay, Tom’s Angels & Airwaves didn’t end up making “the best fucking album anybody has heard in 20 years” like he promised, and Mark… Well, I have no idea what he’s up to. He’s probably just strapped for cash. So, let’s save them the trouble of reforming for one subpar album (’cause how can you improve on an album title like Take Off Your Pants and Jacket?) by just giving them a million bucks each. Word to the wise: Don’t invest it.
