It will be released on August 1 at 9AM PST as per the band’s recent Instagram story. Recently, Mark Hoppus took to his Instagram story section and posted a picture of a Blink-182 t-shirt.
This had led to several fans believing the reunion might be on the cards soon. Chicago’s Q101 radio DJ recently stated that the band has an announcement on Monday. DeLounge had also posted a picture with Mark Hoppus and Matt Skiba on Instagram account. But, it seemed there is some bad news for the fans.

After their hit album titled after the name of the band took an eight-year hiatus. They came back in 2011 with their eighth album Neighborhoods.
