New Blink 182 Album will be Catchy, Poppy, and Weird

In a recent interview with MTV, Blink 182's Mark Hoppus gives fans a little insight into the album the band is currently working on.:

Seems simple enough. But when Blink reconvene in the studio, what will their new songs sound like? We've already heard Tom DeLonge describe the new Blink songs as "ambitious" and "the work of our life," but by now, we're sort of used to him saying stuff like that. So we asked Hoppus to fill us in.

"We definitely want to try a bunch of different stuff. I think it will still sound like Blink. I think it will still be catchy. I think it will still be poppy, but we want to be weird on this record," he said. "There's your pull quote: Mark Hoppus says 'We want to be weird on this record.' "

But from where will all this weirdness spring? Well, apparently from pretty much everywhere.

"Everybody listens to such different stuff. Tom is really into, like, '80s stadium rock; huge, monumental '80s rock bands. Travis is all over the place, musically, and he always comes up with beats and drum parts that are so way out that I would never think of them," Hoppus said. "And I've just been listening to a lot of weird indie rock. So somewhere between amazing hip-hop beats, stadium rock and indie rock, you'll find Blink."
