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

JOHN FELDMANN IN THE STUDIO

It seems John Feldmann (producer, lead guitarist and vocalist from Goldfinger) has been in the studio with blink-182. Mark Hoppus posted this picture on his twitter stating –

“In the studio for 14 hours today and drank so much coffee I’ll never sleep again.”

Now potentially he could just be popping in – we’ve had other people be involved in the process without much information, like Tim Armstrong, but pictured like this it suggests he has more involvement. He could be producing the record, or mixing some of the tracks! who knows!

John Feldmann has done a lot of production work, with artists like The Used, Good Charlotte, All Time Low, Goldfinger, Mest, 5 Seconds of Summer and many others.

Are you excited about this potential development? discuss it with us on our forums! 

IS THIS A NEW BLINK SONG?!

newblinksongjan2016

A short while ago, Fender invited Mark Hoppus and Matt Skiba to test out their new amp series. There has been a few short videos with clips of various musicians talking about the amp and using it.

They recently released this video where there is footage of Mark and Matt playing something together… which is not a blink-182 or Alkaline Trio song we recognise.

It starts at 1 minute and 33 seconds.

Could this possibly be one of the new songs?! what do you think of it? why don’t you join us on the forums and discuss it with us!

There’s been a lot of little snippets about the studio over the past week! We’ve had Travis posting snapchats from the studio –

We’ve had Mark talk about bass recording on his instagram account –

“I thought this would live safe and protected on a wall but now it has become the main recording bass for this album. Today I am play the bass. Fender Jaguar with Seymour Duncan quarter pound pickups in my flipped configuration. Ernie Ball super slinky bass strings. Mediocre bass player who drives it.”


We’ve had Travis’s drum tech posting a lot about being in the studio, equipment on the drums and just general positivity… not to mention lots of Star Wars stuff.

And finally today Travis posted an instagram post about being in the studio with Matt, Mark and Tim Armstrong. Which is something else to take away from this week of updates –

Tim Armstrong has been in the studio with them a lot. Now he could just be visiting for the week, he could be there because he’s helping out a little on the record… or maybe he’s producing it? we haven’t heard any specifics about a producer but we do know that the band wanted to go back to having a producer in the studio, and now that they have a new member it’s a whole new world in the studio so a producer seems like a damn good idea. What are your thoughts? why not discuss it with us on the forums!

On top of this, Matt Skiba also posted a picture of him with Tim Armstrong in the studio (shown above), stating that he was a special guest in the studio that week. Are we getting a Tim Armstrong guest spot on the record? Is he just playing guitar or singing also? who knows?!

On top of the good news of blink solidly recording this whole week, we also are happy to announce that the forum has returned! so discuss this news with us on our forums!

blink-182 Returning To The Studio!

Well it’s been quite a while, but blink-182 seem to be back in the studio! Mark Hoppus posted a picture of Skiba playing guitar in the studio on his instagram stating What’s up with this handsome beatnik playing guitars today?”.

Travis Barker had been promoting his book as well as doing a small tour with Antemasque, so there seems to be an obvious reason for the quiet front from the band – however this does not mean other things haven’t been happening! who knows.

Do these little teaser shots keep you excited for new blink? Our forums are down currently, but if you’d like to discuss blink things with us you can now join our official facebook group!
