Blink-182 To Record New Album In February 2013
Blink-182 have confirmed that they will record a new album in February, though they admit they no idea how to distribute it after quitting their record label this week. Blink have left Interscope after 15 years with the label and find themselves unsigned for the first time since 1997. However, rather than being disheartened by the split, bassist Mark Hoppus has told that he is optimistic about the future of the group and looking forward to making new music and finding new ways to get it to their fans. Speaking about the next album, Hoppus said the band would "continue writing through the end of the year ... and begin recording after our tour of Australia in February." Discussing the split from Interscope 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. 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. It's a very exciting time here. I feel like our band is in the best place it's been in a long time. I mean, just look at my hair!" Blink-182's next album will be their seventh studio record and the follow-up to 2011 effort "Neighborhoods", NME reports.
