The new album straight from the Hoppus' mouth By Emillie Marvel | July 17, 2014 at 10:39 PM
If you have an internet connection, or haven’t been in a coma, you’ve probably heard about the announcement of Blink-182â€™s new album. Vocalist/guitaristÂ Tom Delonge started the media uproar on Monday, with an Instagram post hinting a new album was soon to come from the band. Since then, the press coverage has been non-stop, with every outlet and every fan trying to wrap their hands around new details surrounding the rumor. The world of music news was convinced the album was a tangible object that was being recorded as they spoke.
When idobi Radioâ€™s Eddie BarellaÂ sat down with vocalist/bassist Mark Hoppus for a pre-Alternative Press Music Awards interview, he had a bit of a different story to tell. The album might not be as certain as weâ€™ve been led to believe, and our ability to take the exciting news and run with it might have been our downfall here. Hoppus states, â€œIt got picked up by all these news outletsâ€¦ and we havenâ€™t started recording yet.â€
