Last month, guitarist Tom DeLonge confirmed that the band’s new album is imminent. The band also shared a short video encouraging fans to “stay tuned”.
The past few weeks, in particular, saw the pop-punk trio teasing their new material with posters containing the Blink-182 logo and the phrase ‘One more time…’, along with a link to a website playing various classic songs and a brief snippet of the upcoming music.
And now, the band has put an end to the mystery with a new teaser featuring a digital clock that reads 9:21 and switches between AM and PM — all of which points to a 21 September release date.

The forthcoming record will mark Blink-182’s first album with DeLonge back in the fold. The guitarist re-joined in October of 2022 after nearly 10 years apart from remaining original members Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker. Together, the trio have released the single Edging.
Speaking to Fender earlier this year, DeLonge said of the band: “You know, we came from broken homes. We came from broken families. So we wanted to viciously attack with happiness, and humour, and energy, and speed. And so it was very much like forcing happiness with brute strength, you know? And that’s what the band’s always been about.”
He also teased that the upcoming release will be the “best album we’ve ever made.”
