In a KROQ interview this morning with Travis and Mark, they announced they would be playing a few shows in celebration of the 10 year anniversary of blink-182’s “Untitled” album. They’ll be playing “Untitled” front to back, along with some other songs.
“It’s something special. It’s the 10-year mark of this album. We just did a run…but this is solely purely for our fans. It’s like a way of giving back and really celebrating an album that was like a turning point for our career.”

Rolling Stone sat down with blink before their small venue show in Brooklyn last Wednesday and spoke with them about the good old days, their creative process, recording the next album, and their signature toilet humor.
As the sound of opening band (and Blink disciples) New Beat Fund rattled the club walls, DeLonge and Hoppus gave a wide-ranging interview, revealing to Rolling Stone they are in town meeting with labels for their next album due next year (they recently left Universal Music Group after 15 years) and opening up about their creative process, their status as pop-punk pioneers, their wild early years and their sometimes-rocky relationship. “Everyone is so different,” says Hoppus. “It’s what tears our band apart and it’s what makes us great when we’re great.”

After releasing nearly 24 hours ago, blink-182’s “Dogs Eating Dogs” hold the #1 slot on the overall iTunes chart!
You can view the chart for yourself here and if you havent already, go buy the album on iTunes or blink-182.com!
Given how stacked the deck was against Blink ever getting back together in the first place, the fact that they got over that hurdle and made a record is pretty monumental. That they learned from that difficult recording process and used the experience to make new music that is just as strong if not stronger than anything on Neighborhoods is impressive. If these are the kinds of Blink-182 songs that get written when all three members are in the same room together, then all we need is someone to slap a padlock on that door during their next rehearsal. With any luck, they should crank out a freakin’ masterpiece next time.
Alternative Press Call “Dogs Eating Dogs” a strong effort and gave the EP 4/5 stars! Go read the full review for yourself here!
