Blink-182 Eye Summer Album Finish
"I think we'll turn in our album in June or July, honestly, and, I mean, the stuff's awesome," Barker told MTV this week. "It's coming close, to the point where these are completed songs and they're not going to change. These are album versions … I wish I could play everyone the songs now. Like I said, they sound awesome."
There have been plenty of roadblocks along the way to a new Blink-182 album. The band went on "indefinite hiatus" in 2005 and weathered the death of producer Jerry Finn and Barker's near-fatal plane crash in 2008. Of the long delay, Barker explains, "You know, it's hard, because we would get home from a tour, and then Tom [DeLonge]'s side project would go out, his side project comes back, he's back now, he's ready to get in the lab, [and] I'm about to say, 'Peace out, I'm about to do my thing.' So it's like, when we're in a room together for more than a month or two, it's gonna really happen. more on this story
