Blink-182 have been posting images of artwork on their Instagram page over the last few days without any comment.
Each photo has revealed another segment of the whole artwork. When the panels are lined-up they appear to show a woman and a skeleton man in the front seat of a car, drawn in a pop art style.
Drummer Travis Barker recently tweeted that the cover for the group’s new album has been finalised, making it likely that the images are in fact snippets of it.

Californian radio station KROQ, who are premiering the band’s new single ‘Bored to Death’ on Thursday (April 28), have suggested that the images might be a teaser for the track.
The single will be the first new music from the group since 2012’s ‘Dogs Eating Dogs’.
Earlier this year (January 27) Hoppus revealed that the band are working on their new album with producer John Feldmann, best known for his work with All Time Low and 5 Seconds of Summer. Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio has joined the band as replacement from Tom DeLonge.
Speaking to NME about the band’s current line-up, Barker painted a positive picture for fans. “Matt’s killing it,” the drummer said in a 2015 interview. “He’s fun to play with and write with. We’re just getting started but I think we’ve got, like, four or five songs right now that I’m really, really happy with. There’s a song called ‘Punk Rock Cliché’, which I love the most right now. It’s about friends of ours and their relationships.”
