BLINK-182 PLANS TO MAKE NEW ALBUM AWAY FROM ‘NORMAL STUDIO’
Blink-182 singer and guitarist Tom DeLonge said that the band will not record its next album in a “normal studio,” explaining, “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. I think if we can pull off those few things we’ll be in really really good shape.”
DeLonge didn’t go into detail about the environment the trio is looking for, but pointed to Blink’s 2003 “untitled” album as an example, saying, “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.”
The new disc will follow up 2011’s Neighborhoods, Blink’s sixth album and its first in eight years.
