    It’s exciting to be posting about Blink-182 again. It’s even more fun when the music coming out is undeniably catchy and there seems to be this buzz hovering around the band again in a way I haven’t felt in years. Hell, I even had to give myself a Blink-182 avatar in the forums. So, today the band will be visiting KROQ once again to announce some news and probably talk a little more about their upcoming album, California.

    We’re expecting pre-order information and probably the announcement of their massive tour as well. I’ll be listening live and then updating this post with news as it comes in, that way there will be one central location for everything you need to know about what happened today. If you’d like to join in on the conversation you can click the little quote bubble on this post to jump to the comments section or, as always, join our large official thread in the forums.

    What we know so far: The new Blink-182 album is called California, the first single is called “Bored to Death,” there will be 16 songs on the album, and the band is heading out on tour with A Day to Remember, All Time Low, and All-American Rejects.

    Digital pre-orders for the album are up on iTunes and Amazon. A vinyl pre-order is up on Amazon.

    From Today’s KROQ Interview

    6:45am: I’ll be updating this section live with any information we may get. It’s early for me here on the West coast — I’m definitely getting more sleep after this.

    Extra Stuff

    I used the high-resolution version of the new album artwork to make an iPhone wallpaper if anyone is interested. God, I’m making wallpapers for Blink-182 again, maybe I need to change the name back to AbsolutePunk.

    Since it's technically the 183rd day of the year does that mean they have to be referred to as Blink 183?

    Do they charge you when it ships or when you order?

    Amazon normally doesn't charge your card until it actually ships.

    "Built This Pool" is clearly the frontrunner for song of the year, right?

  15. No one is sure yet. Sometimes Amazon gets different colors. Right now looks like UK = black, US = purple.

    I got into Blink late, as in after they broke up but before they got back together but i'm really fucking excited for this album like no other, and i really don't know why.
  18. I canceled my Amazon one I made last night (just to make sure I had it) and went in on the signed bundle. That's a pretty damn good deal I think for all that. Signed copy will be cool to have.

    Wonder if the price would increase or decrease if Tom ever comes back?

    Really digging the production on this. Travis' signature drum sound remained intact like I hoped it would, but the instruments feel more vibrant than they've sounded on a Blink recording in a long time.

    Sleekest of beaks. So Good.

    Also available on the signed CD bundle as well for those that would want that more. I want to get it but 40$ shipping has me on the fence but imagine winning those extras.
