Blink-182 To Start Recording New Album In March

If today didn't get any better with the news of Fall Out Boy working on new material, now Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus has revealed in a new interview with MTV that Blink will start recording their new album after their Australian tour early next year.

"Yes indeed, we are no longer with Interscope. It's been a long, amazing journey with them, starting with Cargo records, then MCA, then Geffen, and finally Interscope, but the time has come to move on," he wrote. "The reasons for us not working together are many and varied, but mostly we wish them luck in everything in their future, and thank those there who've worked so hard on Blink-182 throughout the years."

Hoppus also added that Blink are "excited" about the next phase of their career, adding that the band plans to "continue writing through the end of the year ... and begin recording after our tour of Australia in February." And once that album is finished, Blink will weigh their options.

"As far as labels, to be honest, we've been holding our breath waiting for final word from the attorneys that our contract with Interscope had ended. Now the future's a wide-open door," Hoppus wrote. "We're lucky to be in a position where, after 20 years in our band, we can be independent and open to all options. It's a very exciting time here. I feel like our band is in the best place it's been in a long time. I mean, just look at my hair!"
