Blink-182 has finished recording their next album, and now it’s just a matter of whittling down the many, many songs they’ve written and forming the final album.
Barker confirmed the upcoming album when speaking with Punkvideosrock.com. When asked about a release date for the album’s first single, Barker explained, “I can’t really give it away, but, I mean, it’s all there.”
He continued, “The album’s done, I’ll be honest with everybody. It’s just a matter of picking what 12 to 14 songs are going to be on the album. I think we wrote 26 or 27…everyone is really pushing for their favorite.”
Discussing the recording process, Barker said that everyone put in 15+ hour days to get the album done, and rather than send ideas back and forth on the Internet, they all gathered in the studio to hammer things out. Watch Barker talk about Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba’s addition to the songwriting process along with news about the upcoming album below:
