Blink-182 Working on EP for Christmas Release

By November 14, 2012

It's been a few weeks since Blink-182 let it be known that they were exiting Interscope, but they've been busy working on an EP that the trio hope to have out by Christmas.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, drummer Travis Barker said, "To me already, this EP is a hundred times better than Neighborhoods." Why is he trashing the band's 2011 reunion album? Because this time, the three members are all recording in the same space at the same time. "There's some songs on [Neighborhoods] that I love," he said, "but for the most part it was disconnected. It was like, 'You do this part in your studio, and then you're gonna play on it and send it back to me.' When we're not in the studio together, you don't have the opportunity to gel off each other."

So far, this EP (which Barker calls "a post-being-off-the-label celebration" for fans) doesn't have a title or an exact release date, but it appears that it will be a digital-only item. And in regards to the next full-length album, the plan still seems to be to focus on that after the band wind down their Australian tour in February. Blink are hoping we'll have that album by the end of next year. In the meantime, their fans are hoping for a happy Christmas present this year.
