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

blink-182 Offer ‘Throwback, Progressive’ Songs on ‘Neighborhoods’

Posted on in blink-182, Neighborhoods, Tour | 1 Comment

From Spinner:

blink-182 Offer ‘Throwback, Progressive’ Songs on ‘Neighborhoods’

This week, Blink-182 released their new single, ‘Up All Night,’ and revealed that their new album would be called ‘Neighborhoods.’ This means that by the time the trio of Tom DeLongeMark Hoppus and Travis Barker start their tour with My Chemical Romance, they should have plenty of new material to showcase for fans.

“One of the things I’m really proud of about this record is a lot of the songs are really built for a big audience,” DeLonge tells Spinner. Stylistically, the record is a mix of the past and future of the band. “I think we’ve done a really great job kind of separating our record into sections, where some stuff is throwback, some stuff is very progressive, and some stuff is just plain different.”

One song he cites as being very different is one that started from Barker. “It’s like a shuffle swing,” Barker says. DeLonge calls it, “A futuristic version of the Adam Ant song [‘Goody Two Shoes’].”

And getting to play the new album is just part of why the band is so excited to tour with My Chemical Romance. “The only time I’ve seen them play is when they played on my TV show and in videos,” Hoppus says. DeLonge has seen them and is an admitted admirer. “I think what’s really cool about what they’re doing is they’ve got a real strong foundation for the punk rock scene, but they took it a level up with all the theatrics and just their artistic acumen,” he says. “I think they have something that really separated them from the pack, but they’re still rough around the edges, which is kind of how we like the bands that we listen to, we like them to have that angst still in there and they have a rabid fan base, so I think it’s really gonna make the tour amazing.”

‘Neighborhoods’ is due out Sept. 27.

For anyone who’s never heard Adam Ant – ‘Goody Two Shoes’:
