Blink-182's Mark Hoppus: 'The Future's A Wide-Open Door'
Blink-182's Mark Hoppus has spoken out after it was announced earlier that the band had parted ways with their label Interscope Records. Speaking to MTV, Hoppus said of signing with a new record label: "As far as labels, to be honest, we've been holding our breath waiting for final word from the attorneys that our contract with Interscope had ended. Now the future's a wide-open door. We're lucky to be in a position where, after 20 years in our band, we can be independent and open to all options." The bassist and vocalist also spoke about the band's reasons for splitting with Interscope, saying "the time has come to move on". He added: "The reasons for us not working together are many and varied, but mostly we wish them luck in everything in their future, and thank those there who've worked so hard on Blink-182 throughout the years." The band are now officially unsigned. They were only signed to Interscope for the release of last year's "Neighborhoods", and were previously signed to Geffen in the US. Earlier this month Mark Hoppus said that Blink-182 had begun writing their new record. He told NME: "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." Drummer Travis Barker recently stated about their next LP: "I feel like the best is yet to come, the next album is going to be exciting."
