“I’m stoked to play Reading & Leeds 2014. It’s our fourth time playing the festivals, and we’re very honored. The new year will see us in the studio preparing new music, getting ready to rock the fine people of the UK. Prepare for the fury,” explains bassist Mark Hoppus about being chosen for the yearly event.

The last time the band performed at Reading was in 2010 when and like the rumors that have been making their way through the grapevine, do expect a seventh album from the trio sometime next year, more specifically look towards the Summer, just in time for Reading and Leeds which takes place Aug. 22-24.
