Blink-182 will release a brand new album by mid-2014, it has been revealed.
It will be their first LP release since "Neighborhoods" in 2011, which was their first album in years after a long hiatus. In December 2012 they released the EP "Dogs Eating Dogs."
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.
"When [we're not touring], Tom [DeLonge] lives in San Diego, Travis [Barker] 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.
