Published Jul 15, 2011While yesterday (July 14), beloved pop punk pranksters Blink-182 dropped their new single "Up All Night," their first new single in over six years, the California boys saved the biggest news for the start of the weekend: they've just revealed their new album comes out this September.
Just a couple of hours ago, bassist Mark Hoppus took to his brand spankin' new Google + account to announce the details to the devoted.
"Yes indeed! The new blink-182 album will be titled 'Neighborhoods,' and is tentatively scheduled for release September 27nd!!," he posted.
Though the late September shelf date isn't officially set in stone, it would mean that the group would get to promote the disc properly for at least a few of those dates with My Chemical Romance.
With no tracklisting for Neighborhoods is available at present, it's unclear whether the album is an epic, sprawling masterwork, à la The Suburbs. But that new single does sound a bit more mature than what we're used to from the former potty-humour-approving punks. We guess this is growing up?
