Blink-182 issue album update

Vocalist and bassist Mark Hoppus has filmed an update from the Blink-182 bunker.

The pop-punkers are working on their first album since 2003's self-titled hit.

A surprisingly somber Hoppus says that they've been hard at work.

They've been adding guitars to a song by guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge, reworking an entire song in a new key and tempo, and writing basslines for guitar.

The new guitar line is for a song Hoppus describes as a 'kind of a downer song' but he says ' think it will grow and rock out'.

They've been recording guitars through a vintage Leslie cabinet, originally made to record organs.

A recent Hoppus blog said that a new track 'is evolving into a fast, punk-rock jam in the vein of old blink-182' and he described another track called 'Not For Real' as a having a 'up-tempo, indie-rock, Americana vibe to it'.

The album is being produced by their longtime friend Jerry Finn, who worked on Enema Of The State, Take Off Your Pants And Jacket, and their self-titled album.

In the meantime, Hoppus has been shooting episodes of a new music show for Fuse TV called A Different Spin.

He's already had visits from Phoenix, N*E*R*D, Trey Songz, John Mayer, Phil Collins, and Jimmy Eat World.
