Pop-punk favourites Blink-182 have announced that they’ll be heading into the studio this August to begin recording their seventh album, which will follow-up 2011’s ‘Neighborhoods’ and their first release since the departure of founding member Tom DeLonge earlier this year.
Having had Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba fill-in as DeLonge‘s replacement for live appearances since his dismissal from the group, the band have confirmed in an interview with Billboard that they will be bringing Skiba into the studio with them to record. Though it hasn’t been officially confirmed, this would suggest that perhaps Skiba will become a permanent member of the group.
The last update on DeLonge‘s status with the remaining members following his departure stated that the band were in the process of going through a “friendly divorce”. He also released his debut solo album, ‘To The Stars’, earlier this year.
More news regarding Blink-182‘s upcoming record will be confirmed over the coming months.
