Taking to Instagram, bassist Mark Hoppus uploaded a clip captioned: “blink-182 studio life”. The video shows drummer Travis Barker laying down the beat to a new track. The musician also shared the behind-the-scenes footage, along with the message: “Left foot still works.”

See the posts on Hoppus‘ and Barker’s official Instagram profiles respectively.

Late last month, Mark Hoppus told NME that the “different” LP is “a lot more aggressive” and “darker” than the band’s previous work. “[We’re] trying to experiment more, trying different sounds, and trying to expand upon what people think Blink 182 is,” he said.

Setting sights on a release date, Barker recently said that Blink’s eighth studio album will “definitely be out before the Warped Tour”. The group are set to perform at the Atlantic City date of the tour on the weekend of June 29-30.

Speaking about the direction of new LP, the musician added: “Literally anything goes. I think we’re creating one of the most important Blink albums, so I’m really proud of it.”
