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',

Mark likes to blog in spurts lately. He blogged (4 times):

Alternative Press

I did an interview with AP from the studio today, and it’s already up online. Half of it, anyway. The second half comes out very soon, but the third half might take a while… You can read it here.

New Photos from Michael Muller

A couple of weeks ago, we did a photo shoot with our good friend Michael Muller. He’s one of the most amazing photographers in the world, and he made me feel very small by making fun of my camera when I brought it to the shoot. Here are a couple of thumbnails. You can check out the larger images, along with a lot of his other incredible work here. Michael rules.

Alternative Press, part Two

The second half of the AP interview is up. These people are on their game! You can read it here.

Hey I Know That Dude!!!

Travis makes a cameo appearance in the Kid Cudi video for “Day ‘n’ Night.” Great song, great video.

Interview: Rolling Stone

There’s a new blink-182 interview in the latest issue of Rolling Stone (Issue #1073).

“When Blink-182 broke up in 2005, they were sick of fame. “The giant vehicle of the band was determining everything,” says bassist Mark Hoppus. “It sounds cheesy, but we needed to take time to find ourselves.”

After drummer Travis Barker was injured in a plane crash in September, guitarist-singer Tom DeLonge – who had been estranged from his band-mates since abruptly quitting – reached out.
“I put the bullshit aside and wrote him a letter,” DeLonge says. “There was no big talk; after a couple of phone calls, things were back to normal.”

Now the trio are in the early stages of recording their self-produced sixth album. “We’re talking about using analog keyboards from the Sixties,” says DeLonge, who fronted emo-rock band Angels and Airwaves after leaving Blink. (Barker and Hoppus released one album as +44.) “People are going to be blown away.”

Promoters expect the trio’s tour will be a hit. (Their last trek, in 2004, grossed $6.9 million.) “On the Warped Tour Website, we ask fans who they want to see, and Blink pops up all the time,” says the fest’s founder, Kevin Lyman. For a new generation of emo fans and bands, Blink’s irreverent, upbeat take on punk rock with hits like “What’s My Age Again” and “All the Small Things” was hugely influential. “They’re the godfathers of punk pop,” says the Academy Is… frontman William Beckett – who wasn’t old enough to drive during Blink’s late-1990s heyday. “When I heard they were reuniting, I was freaking out on my blog.”
