Blink-182's widely-anticipated upcoming album will be "more aggressive," according to frontman Mark Hoppus.


Blink-182's widely-anticipated upcoming album will be "more aggressive," according to frontman Mark Hoppus.

"It's very different to 'California'," Hoppus told NME. "It's a lot more aggressive. It's darker in theme and tone. If you like 'California' to 'Enema Of The State' then this album is more like the untitled record where we are trying to experiment more: trying to experiment more, trying different sounds, and trying to expand upon what people think Blink 182 is."

Hoppus also said that over 40 new songs have been recorded and that the new record is set to defy fan's expectations.

The follow-up to the trio's 2016 album California has been in the works for a few years. Hoppus is the last remaining original member of Blink-182.

In February, drummer Travis Barker revealed that 70 percent of the work of the band's upcoming album was complete. Barker said the new record can be can be expected in "April, May or June."

"It's not like you're listening and thinking, 'Oh I've heard that before, oh I can compare this to this other song.' With this album we're reestablishing new songs, new rhythms, new ideas," Barker said then.
