Say what you will about their love of drama-laden headlines, but the crew at NME does know how to get scoops that we really want. While speaking to Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus recently, NME was able to confirm that the pop punk pioneers have begun working on a follow-up to their 2011 release. To quote Hoppus himself:

“Early next week I go back to Los Angeles to record an iTunes session for Blink-182, and we’re starting to write the new record right now.”

In an attempt to stir a little controversy and discussion around this announcement, the website also ran comments from Hoppus regarding new music in 2012, including:

“I’ve kind of been in a dead-zone lately… I feel like this summer was kind of devoid of a lot of great new music. The new [Brookyn indie dance duo] Matt & Kim album is coming out, I’m excited about that, the Mumford and Sons album I like… but, yeah, other than that it’s been kind of a dry summer.”
