After much speculation (and apparently some very false starts), Mark Hoppus confirmed in a recent interview that Blink-182 will begin writing and recording their long-awaited new album after their summer tour.

Blink-182 last self-released an EP entitled Dogs Eating Dogs in December 2012, after parting ways with Interscope Records. Their last full-length studio album, Neighborhoods, was released in September 2011.

Video: Watch a teaser for “SLC Punk 2: Punk’s Dead”

Posted by Lauren Mills on Monday, July 21, 2014 at 4:01 PM (PST)

The makers of Punk’s Dead, the sequel to 1999’s SLC Punk, have launched a teaser for the movie. Here’s what director, James Merendino had to say about the teaser, which you can watch below:

I am now in New York editing Punk’s Dead and it’s looking really good. It’s a long process so I wanted to give you a little tease so you can see a bit of what I’m up to. In this teaser you will get a glimpse at familiar faces and I briefly introduce Bob’s son, Ross. I am not revealing all of the characters or even much of the story. There’s more, much more but you have been so supportive that I wanted to show that there is indeed a movie on there. Enjoy.

Shooting for SLC Punk 2: Punk’s Dead began last month in Salt Lake City, where a ‘concert scene’ featuring Screeching Weasel and The Dwarves was filmed on June 20th. We’ll keep you posted as more details on the movie come to light.

Music Video: Old Man Markley – “Train of Thought”

Posted by Kaylee McNeil on Monday, July 21, 2014 at 3:35 PM (PST)

San Fernando Valley bluegrass punks Old Man Markley have just released their music video for “Train of Thought”, a track off of their latest release, Down Side Up, which was launched last year via Fat Wreck Chords. You can check out the video here.

The footage was taken this summer when the band visited Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas.

On the relationship between the song and footage, the group commented:

The song “Train of Thought” seemed appropriate to film at PRB… With so many activities to pull you in any direction – bowling, shows, pool parties and things we shouldn’t mention here. In this video we captured anyone that crossed our “trains” path and included them in the filming! This song was written by Joey Garibaldi and Todd Fenton, who aptly describes the song: “Control is an illusion, except when you’re out of it. Same could be said for perception. The mistakes of the past and pressures from the future are what make us the same, not different.” We hope the video reflects the chaos and serendipitous nature of crossing paths with people and being open to the experiences that follow such interactions.

The band is currently taking a post-tour break, and the aforementioned track certainly captures the weary exhaustion of life on the road.
