blink-182 Have Announced Their New Album, Nine

Pop-punk kings blink-182 have announced details of their new album, Nine.

Finally! blink-182 have officially confirmed details of their forthcoming eighth record, Nine (we see what you did there, guys). 

The pop-punk trio’s follow-up to California will be released via Columbia Records on September 20, with pre-orders arriving at 12am UK time tonight. To coincide with that happening, blink will also be unveiling their new single Darkside at the same time, along with a lyric video. Stay tuned…

While we obviously haven’t heard the full record yet, the trio – Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker and Matt Skiba – previously stated they’d be taking an anything goes” approach to the sound, rather than a straightforward pop-punk route.

Speaking exclusively to Kerrang!, Mark said that he wanted to return to the mentality of blink’s Untitled album.

After playing in this band for 27 years, I want to push it and do different things and take blink to places where we haven’t been before,” he explained. We’re really trying to do that on the new record. We want to do with our band what we did in 2003 with Untitled, where we take our foundations and go off in completely weird directions.” 

Check out the tracklist for Nine below:

1. The First Time
2. Happy Days
3. Heaven
4. Darkside
5. Blame It On My Youth
