Blink-182 Eye Summer Album Finish

(Gibson) It's been nearly eight years since Blink-182 released an album, but drummer Travis Barker says that the band have completed five new songs and that fans can expect them to wrap up their new album this summer.

"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
