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',

HMNIM: Highfield Festival

Posted on in blink-182, Mark Hoppus, Tour | 3 Comments

From himynameismark.com:

Yesterday we played the Highfield Festival here in Germany.  As is typical at these summer festivals, the event is held in a large field.  The day before we got there it had rained and flooded, forcing a near-cancellation of the entire show on our day.  But the show must go on, and the rain stopped, leaving a huge field of mud.  One bus got stuck.  A big-rig truck got stuck.  Then yesterday we arrived to sunny skies and mud.  Until showtime.  About an hour before we took the stage, a huge storm moved in with rain, wind, and lightning.  The band before us had to stop for a while for those in charge to assess the situation.  Rain, lightning, wind, lights, electricity, generators, sound gear, and a large metal-framed stage can be an uncooperative combination.  But everyone stuck around, the storm passed, and we had a super fun show.  Thanks to everyone who stayed through the rain and wind.  I hope you had as much fun as we did. Now a day off in Hamburg.  After four shows in a row in large dirty fields, our crew is enjoying a well-desereved break before continuing onwards… Here are some photos from yesterday, BEFORE the storm moved in.

Mark Interviewed By ‘Irish Times’

Posted on in blink-182, Mark Hoppus, Tour | 8 Comments

From Irishtimes.com:

Five years ago the joke was wearing thin for Blink-182 – the band that coupled melodic punk and schoolboy humour – and the members couldn’t look at one another. Then, spurred on by their producer’s death, they made up and reformed. So they’ve grown up? Not quite, Mark Hoppus tells TONY CLAYTON-LEA

IT’S TIME, people, to trade in your Jasper Conran slacks, Gucci loafers and Paul Smith tops for cut-off jeans, sweaty T-shirts and Converse runners – Blink-182 are back. Yes, the band that popularised the combining of schoolboy humour with melodic, sandblasted punk-pop have, following a nasty spat, shaken hands, kissed and made up. Reformed? Only in a manner of speaking.

“I can’t remember a time in my life when there wasn’t Blink-182, in some major way,” says bass player Mark Hoppus, taking time to talk backstage in Glasgow’s cavernous SECC during their successful European tour. He is reminiscing about the early days, and how the past 20 years have gone by in, well, a blink. Read more
