Blink-182’s reunion has been one of the hottest tours of the summer, and now the band has announced a new album, coming out next month. One More Time… will be the first record with the classic lineup of Mark Hoppus (bass, vocals), Tom DeLonge (guitar, vocals) and Travis Barker (drums) since 2011’s Neighborhoods. They announced the album with a brief trailer, which you can watch here (it is a bit NSFW).
The trailer has some interview footage of all three members of the band speaking with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe and it gets rather candid. DeLonge speaks about his decision to leave the band in 2015. He notes that he had told his wife that he might not ever play music again. But when he learned that Hoppus was battling blood cancer, Tom said that playing music with his friends was “the only thing that I want to do.”
Barker muses over the question of “Why does it take these catastrophes like me being in a plane crash or Mark being sick for our band to get back together?” Barker was nearly killed in a September 2008 plane crash. Hoppus also describes how his chemotherapy “wrecked” his vocal chords and that he had to train with a vocal coach to recover.
Per their press release, the band recorded One More Time… while on their reunion tour. Travis Barker produced the album, which features 17 new songs. The songs include:
1. “Anthem Part 3”
2. “Dance With Me”
3. “Fell In Love”
5. “One More Time”
6. “More Than You Know”
7. “Turn This Off!
