Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus has spoken out about their long awaited new album.

Mark hopes to “deliver” the new album in April or May, and aims to release it soon after.

In a recent blog post, Mark said: “We’re working with the better part of ten or so songs at this point. There’s still a long to way to go before the album is done, but already it seems like the songs are both taking a step even further than we took on the last album, while also going back to the sound of some of the earlier albums. And the ideas keep coming.”

“Yesterday I worked on the basics of an uptempo, catchy progression; kind of in the vein of Wendy Clear or Going Away to College. We’ll see how it comes together… The Americana, country-type song that I’ve written about before is now in its third incarnation, and I think it gets better with every change.”

“We want to deliver the record in April or May, for release very soon afterward. That’s our goal. That’s what we’re all working toward. That being said, the only thing more important to us than getting the record out in that time is getting a GREAT record out.”
