After a recent split from Interscope Records (after 15 years with the label), a now independent Blink-182 has announced that they are recording music and announced that they will be releasing an EP by Christmas. Lead Vocalist Tom Delonge’s Twitter account seems to be the major outlet for Blink-182 news, with a tweet on October 23, 2012 from the artist announcing their freedom from the label and then the November 8th announcement of the EP. Pre-orders for the new EP start tomorrow here.
Hoppus later clarified in an MTV interview that there are no hard feelings with the label that did a great deal for the band and that they simply needed a change. A full-length album may still be in the works for early next year, but the EP (for which the drum tracking has begun) is due out next month.
