Blink-182 confirm new album

The band are working on the follow-up to 2011's 'Neighborhoods'

Blink-182‘s Tom DeLonge has confirmed that the pop-punk band are working on a new album.

Writing on Instagram, the guitarist revealed the band have started rehearsals for their upcoming live dates – which includes a headline slot at Reading And Leeds Festivals later in August – and that the follow-up to 2011’s ‘Neighborhoods’ will follow.

“Rehearsals start today,” DeLonge said in the caption to an image of old photos of the band which you can see below. “And yes there will be a new album. Sorry for the wait.”

Last month, the band announced a one-off London show in August as a warm up to Reading and Leeds, which will also be headlined by Arctic Monkeys, Queens Of The Stone Age and Paramore. The US trio will perform at O2 Academy Brixton in London on August 6.

Blink-182’s latest release was the ‘Dogs Eating Dogs’ EP in December 2012. The band split from their label Interscope in 2011.
