Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus shares update on direction of new material

ABC/Paula LoboWith Blink-182 starting work on their next album, bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus has offered an update on what direction the new material is taking. According to a tweet from Hoppus, the new music is channeling the band’s early 2000s era.

“Early days still but the newest blink-182 songs sound like they pick up where Take Off Your Pants and Jacket left off,” Hoppus writes.

Take Off Your Pants, Blink’s fourth studio album, was released in 2001. It spawned the hit singles “First Date,” “The Rock Show” and “Stay Together for the Kids.”

Blink-182’s most recent album is 2016’s California, the band’s first release with guitarist and vocalist Matt Skiba in place of Tom DeLonge.

Perhaps Blink will debut some new music at their upcoming 16-show Las Vegas residency, which launches May 26.
