"This Monday, June 21st at 5 p.m. Pacific Time, you can hear an announcement on KROQ 106.7 FM regarding something big," Hoppus wrote. "I'm not going to say what it is exactly, but a possible anagram is 'bee hooting twinkly.' ... Very exciting!"
It is, indeed, especially when you rearrange the letters of the anagram and discover that they spell "Blink One Eighty Two." It's not exactly clear what the announcement will be about, though ever since Blink wrapped their reunion tour at the end of 2009, they've reportedly been working on a new album in fits and starts. But for all that work, there's still no title or tentative due date for the follow-up to their self-titled 2003 album, and in the meantime, Blink's Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker have also been recording their respective projects, Angels & Airwaves and Barker's long-awaited solo album.
A spokesperson for Blink's label, Interscope, did not respond to MTV News' request for comment on Hoppus' announcement. So it looks like everyone's just gonna have to wait until Monday to find out the real story. And seriously, Blink fans, you're pretty used to waiting at this point, aren't you?
