MTV: Are Blink-182 Working On A New Album?

Posted on in AVA, blink-182 | 2 Comments

From MTV:

“On Thursday, Blink-182 fans rejoiced when it was announced that the long-dormant band would be reuniting as presenters at Sunday’s Grammy Awards. While it’s not clear if Blink will be doing anything more than presenting an award, it does appear that there may be more to come from the band.

At least that’s what a member of a Blink offshoot band — Tom DeLonge’s Angels & Airwaves — seems to have confirmed in a chat on the social-networking site Modlife.

On Thursday night, A&A guitarist David Kennedy was fielding fan questions about that band’s new album when, with a few keystrokes, he changed the game entirely, hinting that while Angels might be putting out an album this year, Blink may be, too.

“I’m trying to write a statement about how Angels is all good while Blink is coming back,” Kennedy wrote.

When asked by a fan if that meant Angels & Airwaves were going to be scrapped in favor of Blink-182, he replied, “No sir. … It will be a good creative year and I want to make sure that comes across.”

Then, when asked by another fan to clarify the fact that Blink are coming back, Kennedy wrote “Yeah, putting out a record.”

Of course, that sent message boards and Blink fan sites into a frenzy, especially given the thawing of tensions between DeLonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker in the wake of Barker’s escape from a plane crash last fall, and Hoppus telling MTV News in January that, when it came to a Blink reunion, “the future is wide open.”

At press time, Kennedy’s comments had not been confirmed, MTV News’ attempts to contact A&A’s label and management were unsuccessful, and e-mails to Hoppus and DeLonge had not been returned.

MTV: Blink-182 To Reunite At The Grammys

Posted on in blink-182 | 2 Comments

MTV reports that blink-182 will reunite to present at the Grammy Awards:

“Long-suffering Blink-182 fans, your prayers have been answered. Or, at least, taken a step toward being answered. On Thursday (February 5), the Recording Academy announced that Blink-182 will reunite at Sunday’s 51st Annual Grammy Awards … as presenters.

It will mark the first time that all three members of Blink — Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker — have shared a stage together since December 2004. They announced they were going on “indefinite hiatus” in February 2005, and since then have been trading barbs and focusing on new projects — Hoppus and Barker with +44, DeLonge with Angels & Airwaves.

But in recent months, that frosty relationship seems to have thawed. First, Hoppus wrote a blog announcing that he, Barker and DeLonge had begun spending time together, fueling rumors of a full-scale Blink-182 reunion. Then, in an exclusive interview with MTV News, Hoppus said that he and DeLonge were “friends” again, and that “the future is wide open” for a Blink reunion.

Before we get too ahead of ourselves, let’s get back to this Sunday. It’s not known whether Blink will be doing anything besides presenting at the Grammys, but the fact that they were sandwiched between Kate Beckinsale and Natalie Cole in a press release also announcing Diddy, Green Day, LL Cool J and Will.I.Am as presenters seems to indicate that they won’t be doing much else.

Phone calls to representatives for the Recording Academy were not returned by press time, nor was an e-mail to Hoppus asking for comment.”
