Mark Hoppus on the 10th anniversary of Blink-182’s self-titled album

Blink-182 bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus recently told MTV News that the band had forgotten about the tenth anniversary of their self-titled fifth album and only planned a special celebration for it because a fan reminded them via Twitter. He explains:

“Someone on Twitter @-replied to me, pointing out that the 10-year anniversary of the album was approaching. That was maybe three weeks ago. So I emailed Travis and Tom, suggesting that we could perform the whole album live. It all came together very quickly. I’ve been re-learning the bass parts and rehearsing alone in my house here in London … Some of these songs we’ve never performed live.”

The iconic pop punk band will only be playing two shows at Hollywood Palladium in L.A. next month to commemorate the anniversary of the “untitled” album.

Blink-182, who left Interscope Records a year ago, self-released their new EP Dogs Eating Dogs last December. They have been working on a follow-up to their 2011 reunion album Neighborhoods.
