Blink 182's New Album:
Overview of the blink 182 Album
Many have citied the more familar sound of the tracks and how its back to the earlier days in and around the untitled album. Made up of 17 tracks with a couple of the tracks already released one track that has stood out has been "one more time" obviously a huge link to the album name and the story of the band in years gone by with the growing track for me been "more than you know". But less of my view lets deep dive into the reception of the new blink 182 album and the tracks within it.

"ON THEIR NINTH album Blink-182 are still pondering the riddle that’s always been at the center of their antic-filled career: “what’s my age again?” This time, the answer is pretty clear: old in life, but young at heart.""View Review Here

"releasing new music that not only harks back to the origins of where they came from, but where they could have gone following the release of their last album, 2011’s Neighborhoods and 2012’s underrated Dogs Eating Dogs EP."View Review Here

Whats Next? Future of Blink 182
There is more touring on the line for the band with when we were young festival this weekend and then followed by a tour of Australia and New Zealand early into next year. This is then followed by the south America tour before revisiting the UK for the cancelled Ireland and Scottish shows from 2023. We suspect there maybe more in here as part of the new album, perhaps additional shows in the USA.
Hopefully on top of this they may surprise us with some new music maybe and the end of 2024 and they really seem happy and back to the bands original roots in terms of making music. We can only hope this is the case and new music is produced well into the next few years!
