Blink 182 members Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge recently spoke to Yahoo! Music about meeting with labels and thinking about producers for their next album, which they hope will be released next year. Asked whether they have hired a producer for the record, Hoppus replied:
“We’re talking about it but we haven’t decided on anyone yet. This whole tour, this whole experience is about getting ready for that next record. We’ve been meeting with labels, we’ve been talking about producers, trying to figure out internally what the plan is for Blink.”
Asked whether Blink-182 will sign to another “big label”, Hoppus replied, “We’re not against it. If it’s the right label and the right partnership and the right vibe or we could do it ourselves or use a distributor. There are so many options for bands now.”
Blink-182 self-released their new EP Dogs Eating Dogs a year ago. Their last full-length studio album, Neighborhoods, came out in 2011 and was their first one after an eight year absence.
