Blink tease studio work with Skiba

Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus has offered a sneak peak at the band’s studio progress with Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba.

He’s been working with Hoppus and Travis Barker since Tom DeLonge fell out with his bandmates at the beginning of this year.

In one of two Instagram posts, featuring Skiba playing a guitar, Hoppus says: “Matthew is making the rock and roll style music with a plank of wood.”

In March drummer Barker said: “If we did make an album with Skiba it would be unreal. There’s a vibe in the rehearsal room that we haven’t had in a long time.”

But earlier this month DeLonge said he was “willing and interested” in rejoining Blink, adding: “I think about that band every day.”

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 (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) 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.
