Seriously, Tom DeLonge alluded to some stadium rock qualities present in this ever-elusive sixth Blink-182 album:
“We have these songs that are total throwbacks, exactly what people know blink is. Then we have songs…that are madly different and experimental, (and) songs that are prog-rock blink music, taking a blink song but (adding) stadium rock qualities to it. I really think we have a tremendous, diverse palette. We will have the album that I think is really modern and relevant to where we are in our career.”
Who knows? This could be a good thing. At least there are “total throwbacks”. But the better news is the band is handing in the first single of the new album on July 3rd (yes, right around the corner!), which means we’ll finally have that new Blink song just as they head out for the Honda Civic Tour. Nice!
