Speaking to Kerrang
, bassist Mark Hoppus
said the band are aiming to hit the studio in early 2014 with an aim to release the results in "late spring/early summer."
"We haven't thought about any new songs yet,"
said Hoppus, though it's normal for Blink-182 to wait until they hit the studio to start writing because they live so far apart.
[we're not touring], Tom
] lives in San Diego, Travis
] lives in Los Angeles and I live in London, so we don't really talk all that much. But then when we get in a room together, it all falls into place and we start making jokes. That's when we start writing songs and reconnecting with everything."
Meanwhile, Blink-182 will head out on a short tour of the US this September.
