Blink-182 are now independent artists after announcing their split from Interscope Records.
"Freedom!! Blink as of today, is now an independent Artist!!!!!," guitarist Tom DeLonge tweeted.
Earlier this month bassist Mark Hoppus said the band has started writing their new record, telling NME: "We're starting to write the new record right now. We're going to tour Australia in February with Blink . . . [so the] proper tour and the new album probably won't happen for about a year."
Drummer Travis Barker also expressed his joy in being free of a record label home, stating "I feel like the best is yet to come, the next album is going to be exciting."
Blink were only signed to Interscope for the release of last year's Neighborhoods, and were previously signed to Geffen in the U.S.
