Blink-182 have revealed that they are already working on tracks for their next studio album, despite the fact that their comeback record 'Neighborhoods' only came out in September.

The band, who added two new UK dates to their June and July tour earlier this week, are set to spend the summer touring, but their co-frontman Mark Hoppus has revealed that he has been writing new songs while his bandmate Tom DeLonge has been out on the road with his side project Angels And Airwaves.

Speaking to Kerrang!, Hoppus said: "Right now, I'm writing songs and Tom is doing other stuff. Basically, we've been on a break since last summer's US tour".

Asked if the songs were for Blink-182 or for some other project, Hoppus said:

I'm sure these will all be Blink songs at the moment. I don't have any plans to write songs with anybody else right now. If I do, it'll be a collaboration or a one-off thing, but everything I'm writing right now is for Blink-182.


Hoppus went on to say that his songs were in their early stages and would most likely sound completely different when his bandmates got their hands on them.

He added: "It's really too early to tell. At the moment all I've got is a bunch of chord progressions and ideas. It's more me playing my guitar and coming up with little ideas and melodies. By the time it goes to Tom and Travis and we work on it as a band, who knows what it will sound like".
