Blink-182 album work has begun

Blink-182 have started work on what will be their seventh album, guitarist Tom DeLonge has confirmed.

There’s no schedule for completion on the follow-up to 2011’s Neighbourhoods, although he’s previously suggested it could appear before the end of the year. But the band are aware their fans are impatient for new music.

DeLonge said via Instagram yesterday: “Rehearsals start today. And yes, there will be a new album. Sorry for the wait.”

The trio recently confirmed a warm-up show at London’s Brixton Academy on August 6, ahead of their headline appearances at the Leeds festival on August 22, and Reading on August 24.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
