    Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 did a little Q&A on Instagram over the weekend. He said they’re still working on the upcoming EP and that “Matt is going back into the studio with John to work on more songs. I think we have a tracklisting. We still need to finish these songs, get them mixed. We are a ways away still, but we are working on it.” And that he does not think they’re going to release a deluxe version of NINE:

    There is no NINE deluxe at this point. The songs that we are going to release on this EP are not…When I think of a deluxe album, I think of the additional songs sometimes as songs that were thrown away or weren’t good enough to make the real album and so they are put on as bonus songs. We wrote new songs for the ‘California’ deluxe and I think that that stands on its own. But this one we are writing all new material and it didn’t feel like it was part of the NINE writing sessions. It felt like its own entity.

    He also confirmed Matt is obviously still in the band (that was a fun week of conspiracy theories) and that there are bunch of Simple Creature songs that are waiting to be finalized and then released.

    Glad to hear him confirm that Matt is still in the band. I wasn't concerned, but I was tired of hearing people make baseless accusations.
