In an exclusive interview with the music magazine Kerrang! lifted Blink-182 frontman Mark Hoppus the plans for their new album. He wants to be with his band “in all sorts of weird directions”.
This is Hoppus build on their untitled album from 2003. “After 27 years in this band, it seems to me time for something new and therefore I want to Blink to explore new horizons,” says Hoppus. “We are working on our new album. We want to do what we had previously in 2003 already did, namely, our roots, and take it in all sorts of weird directions.”
Recently announced Hoppus still a nevenproject with Alex Gaskarth, frontman of All Time Low, but that does not stop him to now fully engaged with the new album.
“We’re constantly in the studio. Our bands are our top priority and will always remain so. We all have our side projects, but we are also honest about opposite each other. Blink is really the top priority for everyone and that we know each other.”
