Mark it down, guys. Blink-182’s new album is heading our way this fall. On Friday (July 19), the California-founded band appeared on “Good Morning America” to perform their current radio single “Blame it on My Youth.”
Following the live performance, frontman Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker participated in a short interview where the host revealed the duo had some big news concerning new music.
Turns out, the big announcement was the official release date for the group’s long-awaited follow-up to 2016’s California.
“New music right now. September 20th is the release date of the album,” Hoppus said to an excited audience. Watch the clip here.
Blink-182 is currently on the road with Lil Wayne and Neck Deep on their co-headlining summer tour. Tonight, the band does not have a show, but the tour will continue tomorrow (July 20) at the Veterans United Home Loans Ampitheatre in Virginia Beach. The full list of upcoming tour stops can be found here.
In honor of the 20th anniversary of their third studio effort, blink-182 previously announced that they will perform Enema of the State, in full, during the current excursion.
Last week, the tour made headlines after tour mate Lil Wayne told an unsuspecting audience in Bristow, Virginia that he may be exiting the assignment well before the trek’s last day.
“I’m not sure how long I’m going to be able to do this tour but make some noise for blink-182 for including me anyway. This might be my last night, though, let’s go.”
Hours after the fan-shot video went viral, the rapper responded on Twitter saying that everything was okay and that he had no plans on leaving the tour.
“Yesterday was krazy! But I want all my fans to know I won’t be quitting this tour!” the rapper posted on Twitter.
He continues: “I’m having too much fun with my bros blink-182. Bangor, ME See you tomorrow!”
