Blink-182 New Album: Mark Hoppus Says Recording Will Start This Year, No Release Date Yet

Blink-182 will start recording their new album this year, after a delay.

The original plan was to start at the beginning of 2014 but the group will now hit the studio sometime before 2015.

Mark Hoppus revealed the plans to Denmark website Rockfreaks.net.

“We are basically at the very beginning of the process. We were going to start recording at the beginning of this year, but there were some things happening in some of our personal lives that prevented us from getting in the studio, so now we are getting in the studio at the end of this year instead,” Hoppus said.

“We have the beginning of song ideas at this point, and we are really just excited to get into the studio and have an album out sooner rather than later.”

The group has recorded albums with members all in the same room but also recorded remotely with Neighborhoods, the group’s last album that came out in 2011.

“Hopefully we can all mostly be in the same room,” Hoppus said.

“I am actually moving back to Los Angeles at the end of this summer, and then all of us will be in Southern California so it will be a lot easier for us to be in the same place at the same time.”
