Mark Hoppus: I’m blink-182 For Life

by Zack Zarrillo - May 30, 2014

We posted an article this week with the opinion that blink-182 should go an indefinite hiatus again if the band couldn’t put passion over consequence. The piece has made its way around the blinkernet with all sorts of feedback ranging from those who agree to those who would like Zack to kill himself. 

It looks like Mark Hoppus has read the article, or at the very least has received personal questions about it. Hoppus stated to fans that he is blink-182 for life, and that the band won’t go on hiatus again if he has anything to say about it. Read our original piece here and check out a tweets from Hoppus below after the jump.

Not Now: It’s Time For blink-182 To Go On An Indefinite Hiatus, Again

Passion over consequence. When did the latter take the lead?

I’ve wanted to write this piece since April, but I’ve struggled with it. The original version was supposed to feature lyrics from multiple songs from Untitled to frame a sort of imagery to walk you through as I made my points. Instead, I’m going with a lyric from Taking Back Sunday's “Swing,” because it's all I need.

I decided to give up on the piece all together since it wasn’t coming together. So, I talked it out on Off The Record, my podcast with Jesse Cannon, instead. The episode went up today and is called Keep Getting Them Checks; the conversation about the title of this post takes place about two-thirds of the way in.

After taping the podcast, I had more thoughts and thought I had no place to put them. It’s a good thing I have a blog with my name in the domain.

Here we go.

blink-182 Recording New Music Has Been “Kind Of A Challenge”

by Zack Zarrillo - Mar 19, 2014

Things suddenly don’t look so good for new music from blink-182 in the near future. The band was already supposed to be recording their new album and follow-up to Dogs Eating Dogs, but it’s become apparent over the last few weeks that Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, and Travis Barker weren’t in the studio together yet.

In a new interview with Noisey, Travis Barker stated that recording new music has been a “challenge” and that he can’t wait for the stars to align in terms of blink hitting the studio to sacrifice not recording on other projects. Barker hopes that the band can still hit the studio before Reading and Leeds this summer, but didn’t necessarily show full confidence in releasing music before the summer like originally planned. Check out part of the interview below after the jump.
