Mark Hoppus recently took to Discord and wrote about Tom DeLonge. Here is what he wrote:
This is not the first time the band has teased the fans. Previously, Blink-182 dropped tease about their upcoming music. On September 7 they had a new post featuring a cryptic digital clock. The pop-punk trio started teasing new music with a mystery website and a series of posters earlier this week.
On the website, various classic songs played out before a brief snippet of new material eventually played out.
The band went on to share a cryptic digital clock that flashes the time 12:00 and switches between AM and PM on their social media channels. It also plays the same snippets of music that first appeared on their website earlier.
A series of promotional posters featuring the Blink-182 logo and the phrase ‘One more time…’ have appeared, hinting at a possible new album or single release.
According to the Blink-182 Italia fan account on X (formerly known as Twitter), the posters also feature what appear to be song lyrics: “Do I have to die to hear you miss me?/ Do I have to die to hear you say goodbye?/ I don’t want to act like there’s tomorrow/ I don’t want to wait to do this one more time.”
The pop-punk trio marked the return of Tom DeLonge last year by releasing the single ‘Edging’, and confirming that their ninth studio album was in the works. DeLonge previously teased that the record could be the group’s “best album” and their “most progressive”.
Blink-182 were forced to postpone headline shows in Glasgow, Belfast and Dublin due to “an urgent family matter”. Drummer Travis Barker later said that his wife Kourtney Kardashian had undergone “life-threatening emergency surgery” for their unborn baby.
