(Radio.com) Blink-182's guitarist Tom DeLonge tells Radio.com that they are looking back to their acclaimed self-titled album for inspiration for their next album. He said, "We can take the next step and really get back to risk-taking."
They'll pick up where they left off on 2003′s Blink-182, the last album they recorded before their break and the band's biggest musical risk to date. Fittingly, the album turns 10 this year, a landmark the band is celebrating with a string of shows during which they'll play the record in its entirety.
"We didn't go into that record with anything specific that we wanted to do other than take our time and do it the way we want to do it, to really see what would happen if we did it on our clock, in our world and really disappeared for a while and tried to reinvent the band," DeLonge said.
"After that we did the Neighborhoods record, and we didn't do that [experiment together] – we weren't even in the same studio aside for like three days. So this next record, what we're gonna do is repeat that [the Blink-182 recording experience]. That's why we wanted to bring back [Blink-182]. We're about to embark on the exact same trip [as the self-titled record], so I think that's exciting." more on this story
