“Tracking with Petey today. This was most of the bass on Enema of the State.”

In the last hour both Matt Skiba and Mark Hoppus have posted studio pictures to their instagrams! looks like the boys are straight back into the studio!

Now knowing they’re already 5 tracks in, and Travis Barker sneakily suggesting a tour next summer, maybe this album will be finished sooner than we all thought?

According to a recent Travis Barker interview with NME, blink-182 are 5 tracks into the new album, one of which is currently titled ‘Punk Rock Cliche’. 
 
“We’re just getting started but I think we’ve got like four or five songs right now that I’m really, really happy with.
There’s a song called ‘Punk Rock Cliché’ which I love the most right now.
It’s about friends of ours and their relationships.”
“The goal here is to come up with an album and just write,” he added.
“We don’t put a limit on how many songs we’re gonna write.
[We just] Write a bunch of songs and when we feel like there’s an album ready,
there’s an album ready. You know, no pressure, no deadlines.”

Mark Hoppus recently went back to his home city of Ridgecrest to support his father (pictured with Mark above) who is the president of the Historical Society of the Upper Mojave Desert Board of Directors. Mark is auctioning one of his basses in an effort to fundraise for them.

“I know how important the historical society is to my dad and how hard he worked on it. I wanted to help out if I could”

He then talks a lot about growing up in Ridgecrest, check the full piece here! it’s a fascinating read!
