Blink-182 bass player Mark Hoppus says he’s getting ideas for the band’s next release
Blink-182 last unleashed a new album of originals, “Neighborhoods,” in Sept. of 2011, and although it’s only been about a year since then, the pop-punk trio are already working on new material. Bass player Mark Hoppus, says he’s been getting inspiration and new ideas for the band’s upcoming album, and he’s starting to save them onto tape.
Hoppus posted a mysterious message on his Google+ account on Tuesday (Aug. 28), in which he stated, “it begins…,” paired with a photo of a Logic Pro session, hinting that he’s starting to lay down track for new Blink-182 music. Then, Hoppus better explained the post.
“Sorry, not trying to be mysterious,” Hoppus said on his post. “Yes, this is me opening a new file for a blink-182 song. I had three ideas today, all very different. I wish I knew how to operate Logic better. These guitar tracks sound like Frankenstein’s monster singing dub step…”
Blink-182 — which also includes Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker — have been on the road heavily this year, but at the moment, they’re enjoying a break from touring. The guys get back into the swing of things when they set off on the next leg of their North American tour on Sept. 13 at Winstar Casino in Thackerville, Okla
