Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus says he's already working on what might be new music for the next Blink album while bandmate Tom DeLonge is busy with the Angels & Airwaves side-project.
“I’m sure these will all be Blink songs at the moment,” Hoppus told Kerrang! “I don’t have any plans to write songs with anybody else right now. If I do, it’ll be a collaboration or a one-off thing, but everything I’m writing right now is for Blink-182.”
Hoppus said that the songs are in the early stages and likely will change plenty when the entire band begins working on them.
“It’s really too early to tell. At the moment all I’ve got is a bunch of chord progressions and ideas,” he said. “It’s more me playing my guitar and coming up with little ideas and melodies. By the time it goes to Tom and Travis [Barker] and we work on it as a band, who knows what it will sound like.”
