Blink-182 Returns To Your Earbuds This April

Minus Tom DeLonge

Five years after Blink-182 reconvened with Neighborhoods, we're finally getting new music this April, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Of course, a lot's happened during the last five years. For starters, guitarist Tom DeLonge left the band last year after a whirlwind of dramatic events and public feuds with bassist Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker. It was a dark time in the Blink fandom.

Then, Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba joined the band, and the new squad's been hitting the studio hardcore.

Barker told at the beginning of March, "The album’s done, I’ll be honest with everybody. It’s just a matter of picking what 12 to 14 songs. I think we wrote 26 or 27, so everyone right now is really pushing for their favorites."

Lisa Worden, Music Director for Los Angeles alternative station KROQ, stated, "We can expect to hear the first song in April," but she didn't say which day in April. Worden loved the new music, explains.

"I think any fan of Blink-182 is going to be ecstatic when they hear the music. I really do!," she says, as fans give a collective sigh across the Internet. "It sounds like Blink-182 but it sounds like Blink in 2016. Lyrically it’s clever."

Based on this recent tweet, Blink's new material might include some major surprises, like maybe a collab with Steve Aoki and Calum Hood. Fingers crossed.
