Rumors are quite common around any topic and this time around, Popsugar reported that Blink-182, who have entertained their fans for decades, are back with their ninth studio album, Sunny Days, not to be confused with their eighth album, Nine, released in 2019. They further reported that the new release will bring back the band’s gritty punk-rock sound, possibly with Tom DeLonge, with songs like “Let’s Party,” “Monster in My Head,” “MTV’s Dead,” and more.
It was noted that this will mark the band’s first release following frontman Mark Hoppus’s battle with stage four diffuse large B cell lymphoma. On Sept. 29, the singer shared an Instagram post announcing that he’s cancer-free.
A fan disproves the report
One of the fans on Reddit took note of the report and slammed it. The user disproved the report and called it a fake. They further claimed that the report might have been picked up from any fan fiction page and was made into a piece of news quite confidently.
Mark Hoppus had recently shared that he is cancer-free now. He had revealed a reunion with Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker. It was revealed that Barker visited Hoppus’ house to talk about the news. And, in an unexpected coincidence, DeLonge arrived as well.
DeLonge said: “I didn’t know Travis was going to show up, and I was like: ‘Oh, s**t, band meeting!'”
The three most famous members of the band reportedly sat in Hoppus’ garden “for hours” where they opened up to one another. Not just about the bassist’s cancer, but old wounds too. Issues from within the band, and personal experiences.
DeLonge said: “We got into more life stuff. What we’ve learned over the years about ourselves. How we’ve grown, how nothing really matters when it boils down to what we were dealing with in that moment.
“And so, it wasn’t some big meeting about Blink-182, it was more about brothers meeting and saying: ‘How do we support Mark?'”
