BLINK 182 are to release a feature documentary DVD ‘RIDING IN VANS WITH BOYS’ following the exploits of an unknown band thrown onto to their 46-date POP DISASTER TOUR.

Differing from standard on-the-road documentaries of a large rock tour, Blink‘s Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge developed the concept with Melee Entertainments’ Jon Humphrey. The film will detail the ups and downs of San Diego’s Kut U Up as they travel on the major US tour with Blink 182, Green Day and [a][/a].

According to Billboard, the DVD will include backstage footage and live performances.


Blink 182 release their latest self-titled album on Monday (November 17).

As previously reported on NME.COM, the band hinted that this album would stray from their straight up frat punk and makes use of electronic loops and keyboards.

Hoppus said “I think that the next record will surprise a lot of people, including me. We want to do something really dynamic… we want to try different effects in the studio, try different instruments, try different sounds, different arrangements on songs.”

He added: “Before, we got one guitar sound that we changed a little bit through the record. This time we want to try a whole different set-up for each song.”
