Get ready to take off your pants and jacket, kids, because Blink-182 has a new album in the works!
Tom DeLonge confirmed the big news Monday on Instagram, posting an awesome throwback photo of himself, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker writing, "Rehearsals start today...And yes there will be a new album #SorryForTheWait #Blink"
Barker, 38, shared a snap of himself back on the drums, adding the hashtags #RehearsalLife #BLINK #EuropeanTour #NobodycaresGoharder"
The guys are playing several shows throughout Europe next month as well as headlining the 2014 Reading and Leeds Festival. There have been some definite gaps through the years (the band split in 2005 to work on solo projects, reuniting again in 2009), but as Hoppus, 42, told MTV News last September, "Once we start, it moves."
"It's like painting, you know?" he said of creating an album. "You've just got to start with that first brushstroke, and get your clothes off, and get the other person's clothes off, get a little bit of feces, smear it around...Just get going."
What's your age again? In any case, the punk group's last studio album, Dogs Eating Dogs, was released in 2012, just one year after Neighborhoods. Prior to that, though, Barker, Hoppus, and DeLonge hadn't jointly released an album since their 2003 self-titled album Blink-182.
We missed you, fellas! Who's excited?!
