Nothing And Nobody was first revealed by Mark Hoppus in April, but there has been nothing but quiet since. Hoppus has confirmed that he and Chris Holmes will flesh out the record in the fall before blink records. Read what Mark had to say about the project below after the jump.
Many outlets incorrectly reported that there is a new blink-182 album this week instead of the correct information that there will be a new blink-182 album in the future. Read what Mark Hoppus said in a brief snippet of an interview with Idobi on that subject below after the jump.
You ever wonder why us plebeians even wake up in the morning? Probably not until you read that grown-up-punks Matt Skiba and Mark Hoppus are starting a little-human-punk band called The Cereal Killers for children to rebel with spoons everywhere. Listen to Skiba talk about the project here and a description on the podcast episode below after the jump.
Mark Hoppus filmed a video for the APMAs to tell stories on Fall Out Boy, All Time Low, Smashing Pumpkins, and Joan Jett. Watch the video below after the jump.

Wow, blink-182's Enema Of The State is officially 15 years old today. The album is arguably the most important pop-punk record of the modern age, and we are happy to celebrate it today. Read a PropertyOfZack Decade piece here on fifteen years of Enema and stream the album below after the jump!
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.
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.
Nothing And Nobody got furthered detailed by Mark Hoppus. The new band featuring him and Chris Holmes have nearly 25 songs and an album ready to go. Check out tweets from Hoppus below after the jump.
Mark Hoppus is currently demoing some new songs out on bass. No word if they’re blink-182 songs or something else, but you can check out a teaser below after the jump.
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.
