Tom DeLonge of popular pop punk band Blink-182 has just revealed more details on the bands upcoming seventh album. It will be the follow up to 2011’s Neighborhoods and will be recorded in a fashion similar to their untitled 2003 release.
In an interview with Gigwise, Delonge talked about the bands approach to the new album. “I’m not totally sure how it’s going to work but the goal is to find an area or an environment that’s different and not just a normal studio to be together as we architect the songs and inspire each other in ways that we did back in that timeframe, I think if we can pull off those few things we’ll be in really really good shape.”
For people wondering what the difference was when the band recorded their untitled release in 2003, it was a simple yet important one. Blink rented a home in San Diego and abandoned their previous separate writing and recording process in favor of working on each song together, resulting in a new musical direction for the band.
“We’ve always done what we liked, and on the Untitled record there was a lot of debate where we thought our fans wouldn’t even like it, but I think we succeeded by sticking to what we wanted to do, and it turned out to be the one that the fans like the most.” Stay tuned for more news on the bands upcoming album that is set for 2015 Summer release.
