Blink-182 just recorded a new album with Tom DeLonge, but they also have an unheard new album with Matt Skiba.
Skiba told Vulture, “I don’t know if they’ll come out. I think they’re really good. But there’s almost a whole album’s worth of stuff. It was supposed to be an EP, and it just kept going, and going. And now we have, I don’t know if they’re just going to get scrapped, but there’s eight or nine brand-new songs that are done. We basically finished those, and then Mark was diagnosed, if I’m getting the timeline correct.
Honestly, until you mentioned it, I hadn’t even thought about those recordings. But I have them. They’re good songs. I’ll keep them a secret. I’ll keep them safe forever. But we’ll see. I don’t know, maybe they’re something that we could open up and look at differently, or it’s something that’ll come out later, I have no idea.”
Blink-182 recently announced the return of classic member Tom DeLonge, and released their first single with the singer/guitarist in over a decade with “Edging”.
Now, DeLonge took to Twitter to describe to fans what they can expect from the band’s upcoming album with the classic line-up. Tom wrote:
“The new @blink182 album has some of the most progressive, and elevated music we’ve ever had. In honesty, I am holding my breath for you to hear these other songs. ‘Edging’ is fun, and a perfect way to remind u of the fun again. But just u f***ing wait.”
