New Blink music is well and truly underway.

The Blink-182 frontman has made an appearance on Beats 1 for a chat with Zane Lowe, and he offered a great insight in to how the new Blink-182 album is tracking. 

Speaking about what the music they're working on sounds like, he said "It's still in the writing stage, so it will probably change over time but right now it's really aggressive and really catchy and dark and weird. If you take 'California' and compare it to 'Enema Of The State', I would say that what we're writing now is more in line with 'Take Off Your Pants And Jacket' and the 'Untitled' record."

So you can jot us down as excited about that. 

He also talked about their recent Las Vegas residency cancellations due to Travis Barker's health. "We’ve had two weekends full of shows so far and they were amazing, so much fun. Travis has blood clots in his arms right now, so we've had to cancel last weekend and the next weekend and we're going to reschedule those. But I don't know what the prognosis or the treatment is yet. I know that Travis is in and out of the doctors this week so hopefully we'll have some resolution with that. But the intention is to go back and make up those dates and continue our residency because it's super fun."
