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!

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!

 

blink-182 at Firefly Music Festival – June 2016

We mentioned on our facebook page earlier this evening that it looked like blink-182 would be performing at next years Firefly Music Festival.
Now, blink-182’s very own facebook page has confirmed this!
This is the first show we know of that blink are playing next year. There are a few interesting things to note and speculate on! –

On the line up they’re listed as ‘blink-182′ not ‘blink-182 w/matt skiba‘ which may mean that Matt is officially now in the band.

Another thing to note is that this festival is in June – Are blink planning on having their album finished and released by then? Will they be playing new material at this festival?

Another interesting fact – The official page for blink-182 posted an event page for this, stating blink-182 as a headliner yet in the line up itself, blink are not one of the main acts –

They’re still quite high up on the bill itself though, so it’s not too much of a concern.

What are your thoughts on this development? do you think they’ll be playing other festivals? do you hope there will be new material released by then?

 

Happy 12th Birthday, Untitled Album!

It seems that despite Travis being away on a short 8 day tour with Antemasque, the blink-182 machine is still up and running! Mark posted this picture to instagram with the following caption –

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