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!

What do you think of this small but exciting development? why not tell us on our forums!
