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

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.

Our friends at Tokidoki have come through once again. This time with shoes. Super comfortable, with enough pieces of flare to make Stan (the manager of Chotchkie’s) proud. I’m terrible at taking care of my sneakers, so I give this pair three days till they look like I wore them while hiking up the Grand Canyon. Thanks to Ultimate Todd and everyone at Tokidoki.

Mark has three new blog posts up:

Welcome to Heartbreak

The new Kanye West album has been on constant rotation on my iPod since the week it was released. I really think it’s an amazing record. Here’s the new video for Welcome to Heartbreak. Crazy, artistic and effected, the video is directed by Nabil Elderkin, who did a photo shoot with a certain spiky-haired mediocre bass player a couple of years ago.

Yep, that pretty much says it all. Here’s the commercial.

Rumour: Hoppus + Sum 41

Posted on in Mark Hoppus | 30 Comments

According to a question asked on islandrecords.com and apparently answered by Deryck Wimbley himself, Mark will be producing and appearing as a guest vocalist on their next album.

If its true, how will Mark fit this into his already busy schedule when recording and touring with blink?

edit: While the original answer said:

yes, i think?
