On July 14th, Blink member Tom Delong posted the following vintage photo to Instagram with the caption “Rehearsals start today… And yes there will be a new album #SorryForTheWait #Blink”
MTV has the scoop…
The following is an excerpt from It’s Official: Blink-182 Have Another Album In The Works
Because the pop-punk gods have willed it, new details have emerged regarding blink-182′s long-awaited seventh studio album. Take off your pants, and rejoice. Last September, DeLonge and blink-182′s bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus chatted with MTV News about the followup to 2011′s Neighborhoods . “Once we start, it moves,” the “I Miss You” singer said of recording an album. “It’s like painting, you know? You’ve just got to start with that first brushstroke, and get your clothes off, and get the other person’s clothes off, get a little bit of feces, smear it around. Just get going.”

The following is an excerpt from Tom DeLonge Reconfirms New Blink-182 Album, Apologizes For Delay
Blink’s seventh studio album, and first full-length release since 2011′s Neighborhoods, is still without any official release date. Delonge revealed in May 2013 that the band had already started working on new material, before the band later said that they would have a new record out by mid-2014, which evidently fell through.
In late 2013 Blink said that they wanted to have new material out before Reading and Leeds Festival, before Hoppus revealed on Twitter that the band were working on demos during the early months of 2014.
Drummer Travis Barker later claimed that the band had to “get their shit together” before they could actually record a new album. In April, Hoppus implied that DeLonge might be the reason for the album’s delay. Who to believe?
