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

HMNIM: blink-182 Just About to Walk Onstage at the Grammy’s

blink-182 Reunited - Paur Rosenberg

Mark blogged:

Just before we walked onstage at the Grammy’s, the three of us were huddled backstage in the basement of the Staples Center in a crowded holding area. The people who ran the show were going over our presentation and begging us not to go off-script. In the middle of the mayhem, our manager Paul Rosenberg took a photo that may turn out to be the best photo of all time. Travis looks like Travis. I look like a bad wax figurine, and Tom just looks scared. For those who dare, you can see the snap on Paul’s blog, at paulrosenblog.com

From Paul’s blog:

I know I’m not breaking any news here, but I’m glad to report for those who haven’t heard that Blink-182 has reunited following their 4 year hiatus! At the 51st Grammy Awards Travis, Tom and Mark took the stage to present Best Rock Album (Coldplay won) and announced the big news. I had a chance to snap this photo of the three before they took the stage to make it official to the world…

We’ll be managing the group as a continuation of represnting Travis and Mark (individually and as +44) along with Rick Devoe Management and couldn’t be more proud and excited about the possibilities. Click here for the official Blink website and here for their Myspace page. Therein you’ll find their official statement and be sure to check out the recession special $10 t-shirt prices, lasting through Feb. 22nd. More info on the way as it becomes available.

HMNIM: New Music On iTunes

A couple of months ago, I got a call from a friend of mine named Richard Gibbs. Richard scores films, and he invited me into his studio to collaborate on a song for a movie he was working on called “Fired Up.” We spent the next week working on an idea that he had, and built it into a song that’s now available on iTunes. Check it out. It’s got kind of 60’s beach party feel to it. You can check it out here.
