Blink-182 Are Without A Label
Just days after heavy metal legends Metallica announced that they were no longer working with a record label, Blink-182 front-man Tom DeLonge has taken to Twitter to announce that his band are going down the same path. In a message posted yesterday, the guitarist and vocalist wrote the following: "Freedom!! Blink as of today, is now an independent Artist!!!!!" The news comes hot on the heels of Blink announcing that they have begun work on their as yet untitled new album, with Mark Hoppus having recently told: "Early next week I go back to Los Angeles to record an iTunes session for Blink 182, and we're starting to write the new record right now." "We're going to tour Australia in February with Blink... [so the] proper tour and the new album probably won't happen for about a year." Blink have promised that the new album will be an antidote to the "lack of great music" that the band experienced over the summer as Hoppus states: "I've kind of been in a dead-zone lately... I feel like this summer was kind of devoid of a lot of great new music. The new [Brookyn indie dance duo] Matt & Kim album is coming out, I'm excited about that, the Mumford and Sons album I like... but, yeah, other than that it's been kind of a dry summer." Blink-182's last album "Neighborhoods" was released last year. It was the first new material from the band since the reunited in February 2009.The album was created without the assistance of an outside producer and Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker all receive production credits on the album. The band had originally split in 2005 due to internal conflicts, but was reunited by a plane crash that drummer Travis Barker was involved in during 2008.
