New album 'Take Off Your Pants And Jacket' is set to see the band reverting to "a time where we really didn't know how to sing"...

BLINK 182 have declared their new album takes the band back to “a time where we really didn’t know how to sing”.

The band have recently finished work on their new album, ‘Take Off Your Pants And Jacket’, due for release in the UK on June 11.

Speaking to Rolling Stone in the US, vocalist Mark Hoppus said: “This album really takes us back to our roots, back to a time where we really didn’t know how to sing or play our instruments.”

Working titles for songs cited for inclusion on the record include ‘Stay Together For The Kids’, ‘Shut Up’ and ‘Don’t Tell Me It’s Over’.

It is likely the band will precede the album with a new single in the UK.
