blink-182 Recording, City Comma State Information

blink-182 is officially back in the studio today, according to Mark’s twitter.

blink-182 recording today. new album type stuff.

Also, for those of you following Mark Hoppus’s secretive side project, City Comma State, an interview at AbsolutePunk with All Time Low vocalist/guitarist Alex Gaskarth gives some clues into what’s going on.

What about the song that you did with Mark Hoppus not too long ago, what’s up with that? Is it going to be on the new record?
No, not on our record. It is going on a record though, I’m proud to say. Mark has a project with some friends of hi; the band is called City Comma State. I don’t know how much I should announce, but I went back and did some more work on the song with Mark and actually worked on another song with Mark and I think both of those songs are going to be used for that project. It’s exciting, the band seems like it’s going to be really cool. It’s flattering to even have him approach me to use a song we did together on something he’s involved with. I’m really, really pumped for it.

Alternative Press: Mark Hoppus Interview

Mark Hoppus recently sat down for an interview with Alternative Press. In the interview Mark talks about various topics including his new T.V. show, the new record’s release date, and “Up All Night.”

When Blink first started reforming, we got in the studio and started putting ideas down for many songs. “Up All Night” is definitely the one song that is furthest along. I would say it’s fairly near completion, but we haven’t had a chance to sit down and finish recording it. So when we get in the studio and start writing a bunch of new stuff, we’re going to figure out which is the best song to release first.

In a recent blog post on himynameismark, Mark Hoppus comments on his week in New York working on his new T.V. show, “A Different Spin with Mark Hoppus,” and gives insight into his upcoming blink-182 plans.

I can’t wait for the three of us to all be in the same room playing music again. It’s been WAYYYY too long. Rehearsals, ideas for new songs, set lists, and general tomfoolery. Awesome.
