Published Nov 05, 2015There are some bands whose music is tied to a certain format. We might equate certain DJs with Soundcloud streaming, for example, and certain rock bands with the warm crackle of a vinyl record. Then there's long-running pop punk trio Blink-182, who will forever be associated with those disorganized CD wallets from the early 2000s. Attempting to change history, however, they're now reissuing a decent chunk of their catalogue on cassette.
As Modern Vinyl reports, the dick-and-fart-joke-loving band will treat four albums to cassette reissues via the SRC Vinyl imprint.
These include tape editions of the flawless 1997 classic Dude Ranch, its 1999 follow-up Enema of the State, the 2000 live album The Mark, Tom and Travis Show, and the band's more experimental 2003 untitled album. Each cassette will be limited to 2,500 copies and available in three different packaging variations.
Meanwhile, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker are currently hard at work on their first Blink-182 album with Matt Skiba playing guitar in place of Tom DeLonge.
