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

On Wednesday next week blink-182 will be performing an acoustic set on BBC Radio 1 from 7pm (GMT) as part of a ‘Rock All Dayer’ including performances from Asking Alexandria, A Day To Remember, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Moose Blood, Creeper and Against The Current.

This link should allow anyone to listen to it when it airs live. If you’re confused over the time zones, here’s a breakdown for you (worked out via timeanddate) –

GMT – 7pm

PST – 11am

EST – 2pm

AWST – (9th of June) 2am

This acoustic performance may be just Mark and Matt as Travis has not flown since the plane incident in 2008 and the performance is only a few days after their X Games performance in Austin Texas, making a boat trip quite unlikely.

This acoustic performance seems to have been in rehearsals for a while now, as this image was posted to instagram around 3 weeks ago. The capo’s suggest they’re playing I Miss You in this shot.

It looks like blink-182 are filming a music video today! Mark Hoppus posted this picture on instagram, simply stating “Today”.

Now this could be a long awaited music video for Bored To Death, which currently only has a lyric video on youtube or it could be for the next single from their album California which will be released on July 1st

If it’s a new single, which song do you think it is from the track listing? what kind of song would you like to hear? or would you rather a proper video for Bored To Death?

Why not discuss all of the possibilities with us on the forums!

EDIT – From various images posted on Mark Hoppus’s instagram account, it appears to be a video for Bored To Death.

The official blink-182 youtube page has a live stream video set up. It’s currently offline, but the existence of it does open up some fun possibilities.

They could be live streaming one of the up coming shows, or it could be something completely different and creative. Could be a giant interview, maybe an acoustic performance as a one off, who knows – but it’s exciting!

Curious about what this could mean? why don’t you join us on our forums to discuss it!
