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.”

In the most recent podcast from Hi My Name Is Mark (Episode 7), Mark Hoppus gives a brief update about the blink-182 recording situation. He states that they have been writing as well as demoing and that a handful of demo tracks are already done. He also states that it’s a lot of fun!
None of this is particularly new, but it is actual confirmation of them demoing together. All we’ve really seen so far is Instagram shots so to hear it from Mark himself is fantastic news!
He was also given a brand new, custom bass which looks very nice indeed!
