"You guys are in for some dope new blink-182 music in hopefully the nearish future"

blink-182's Mark Hoppus has been chatting about their upcoming new EP, which they previously said would be released by the end of summer. 

During a Q&A on his Instagram he had this to say:

"We’re working on it today. Matt is going back into the studio with John to work on more songs. I think we have a tracklisting. We still need to finish these songs, get them mixed. We are a ways away still, but we are working on it.

These songs are dope. You guys are in for some dope new blink-182 music in hopefully the nearish future."

he also revealed that because of the way that the songs they are writing sound, they will no longer be releasing a deluxe version of their 2019 album 'Nine':

"There is no NINE deluxe at this point. The songs that we are going to release on this EP are not…When I think of a deluxe album, I think of the additional songs sometimes as songs that were thrown away or weren’t good enough to make the real album and so they are put on as bonus songs. We wrote new songs for the ‘California’ deluxe and I think that that stands on its own. But this one we are writing all new material and it didn’t feel like it was part of the NINE writing sessions. It felt like its own entity."

Interesting right?


Did you guys join Mark's socially distant vibing on the beach yesterday? He answered a lot of fan questions about new music! Here are the highlights. In a nutshell: • blink-182 is working on its upcoming late summer EP as we speak. • NINE Deluxe will never come out because these new songs do not sound like NINE b-sides. • Matt is obviously still in the band (pretty embarassing for the fan base that Mark was forced to address this imho) and in fact he's been in the studio with producer John Feldmann in the last couple of days. • There's a lot of unreleased Simple Creatures material waiting to be finalized and published. Make sure to watch all the slides for more funny bits and interesting info, including about Tom DeLonge! #blink182 #blink182italia #markhoppus
