Exciting news! blink-182’s new album is verrrrrrry nearly finished.

The band’s upcoming record – the follow-up to 2019’s NINE, and their first with Tom DeLonge since 2011 – will be done before they head out on their headline tour, according to Travis Barker.

The drummer took to social media to very nonchalantly announce, “Album will be finished before we leave on tour.” And with that aforementioned tour beginning on May 4, that means it’ll be wrapped up this week!

At the start of 2023, returning frontman Tom said the new blink album will be “coming in a few months”, and also teased that it’s “the best album we’ve ever made”. Travis’ drum tech Daniel Jensen revealed last December that he thinks the band’s fans “are going to love it”.

Following a couple of surprise Coachella sets, blink-182’s world tour properly kicks off this Thursday at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota.

See Travis’ tweet below:

Tom also recently got his teasing on, tweeting “Patience young Jedi” to a fan asking about a new song…

While we eagerly await more new music and their upcoming tour, watch pro-shot, official videos from blink-182’s headline set at Coachella.
