The co-vocalist and guitarist, who recently rejoined the pop-punk band after seven years, added on Twitter today (October 15) that the new record has some of the band’s most “elevated” songs.
He wrote: “The new @blink182 album has some of the most progressive, and elevated music we‘be ever had. In honesty, I am holding my breath for you to hear these other songs. Edging is fun, and a perfect way to remind u of the fun again. But just u fucking wait. 😈”

In July, Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba, who joined Blink-182 in 2015 as a replacement for DeLonge, claimed that he didn’t know if he was still a part of Blink-182. DeLonge then hinted that he’d rejoined the group before Hoppus said the original trio were in “a really great place”.
Since news of DeLonge’s return broke and the band shared details of their world tour, Blink have now added an extra London show to their 2023 UK and Ireland tour (tickets will be available here).
“I wanted to take a minute and say thank you for all that you have done to keep the band thriving in my absence,” he wrote. “I think you are enormously talented (I still love and listen to your band to this day).
“You have always been so kind to me, not only in the press, but also to others. I really noticed. Emotions between the three of us in blink have always been complicated, but Mark’s cancer really put things in perspective. But to be honest, the band would not even be here today if it were not for your ability to jump in and save the day.”
DeLonge concluded: “So from my heart to yours, thank you for being a member of our band.”
He previously teased that Blink-182’s forthcoming record is “the best album of our career”. There have been no details shared of a title nor release date.
Prior to ‘Edging’, DeLonge hadn’t contributed to a Blink project since 2012’s ‘Dogs Eating Dogs’ EP.
