Blink-182 have announced that they'll be releasing a new EP in time for Christmas.

Bassist/singer Mark Hoppus had recently told US rock station KROQ that new material from the pop-punk band was on its way, following their departure from Interscope Records, and that a new album would be likely in 2013.

However, yesterday the bassist wrote on his Twitter page indicating that new songs were expected to be released "in a matter of weeks" and informed fans to "watch this space". Minutes later, guitarist/singer Tom DeLonge revealed that an EP could be out by Christmas.

Earlier this year, drummer Travis Barker promised that "the best is yet to come" from the pop-punkers. The trio released their comeback album 'Neighborhoods' in September 2011, their first LP in seven years, and Barker said that he feels like that album represented the band "barely getting back into the rhythm".

Barker, who has a fear of flying, also confirmed that he'll join the group when they tour Australia in March next year as part of the Soundwave Festival. You can watch a video of the band's 10 best songs at the bottom of the page.
