Blink-182 given July 31 deadline to finish their new album
Blink-182 have been given a July 31 deadline by their record label to finish their new album.

The reunited pop-punkers are still writing new material for their sixth studio effort, which will be their first record since their 2003 self-titled album. Speaking to Rolling Stone, drummer Travis Barker said the band will "use every single day" until the deadline to get the collection completed.

"We thought we were closing in on the end, and literally a week ago we pumped out a whole set of stuff that I think will be some of the best on the album," singer/guitarist Tom DeLonge added. "Recording is never really finished. You slide or limp into home base."

Barker also said that fans will get a chance to hear some of the new tracks at the group's upcoming tour dates. "That's what we're most excited about," he said. "It's the first time there will be new music in nine years."

Blink-182 recently angered UK fans by announcing their summer US tour – set to take place soon after they had been due to play UK shows, which they cancelled.
