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

European Tour Rescheduled — Album Delayed

Posted on in blink-182, Tour | 23 Comments

The release of the upcoming blink-182 album has been delayed yet again, forcing the band to reschedule their upcoming European tour dates. From blink182.com:

FROM MARK, TOM AND TRAVIS: It is with heavy hearts that we have to announce our planned 2011 European Summer tour has been rescheduled. When we booked the tour last year, we were confident that we would have the new album out before the Summer. Turns out wewere mistaken as the album is taking longer than we thought and won’t be outtill later this year. We hoped we would have some new songs to play rather than do another ‘greatest hits tour’ whichyou all saw last Summer. As much as weknow our fans would be cool with that, we feel that we owe you guys somethingnew when you spend your money to come see us. Frankly, it’s what needs tocontinue for us to remain vital. Thethree of us are working very hard to do what we set out to do when were-formed…get a new blink-182 album recorded. Apologies to all of our fans who have bought tickets and were lookingforward to the Summer shows but we’ll be back soon with the rescheduled datesin Summer 2012, have a new album out and be able to play new songs for you all.Thanks for all of the continued support and understanding. The rescheduled dates are on our website (www.blink182.com) and are listed below.

Mark Hoppus Answers Questions From Fans 2.0

Posted on in blink-182, Mark Hoppus, Tour | 2 Comments

Again, Mark Hoppus took to his Facebook to answer questions from fans:

Question and answer 2.0. What you got?

what Jazz bass did you use on Enema? didn’t use a jazz bass on enema. i used a precision bass and some tracks have an ernie ball musicman bass.

Do U still trip out when you hear your song on the radio? Yes, absolutely.

do you know if motion city soundtrack will be recording again soon? From what I understand, they are working on new material right now.

What helps you with writers block? When I hit I wall I stop trying to force it.

will the recording process still be covered in the blinkumentary? No, the reformation of the band and the touring we did in North America and Europe/UK are the subjects of the documentary.

did you expect blink to reform eventually? Honestly I didn’t know. At the time, I could’ve seen the band reforming at any moment, or never speaking again.

VIOLECE – what is the meaning of your whispered words in the background of the song? Those are free-associated thoughts or lyrics that I’d written, and I thought it’d set a creepy mood for that section of the song.

Do you think that blink will stay together after the latest album is out and after you finish the summer 11 tour? As long as we’re having fun, blink-182 will be around for a long, long time.
