In a recent interview with, Blink-182 bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus said that after encountering some delays, the band will start recording its new album before the end of the year.

"We are getting in the studio at the end of this year,” Hoppus said, adding: “We have the beginning of song ideas at this point, and we are really just excited to get into the studio and have an album out sooner rather than later.”

Hoppus’ comments come on the heels of Tom DeLonge’s big reveal on Instagram last month that the band was working on a new album. “#SorryForTheWait,” the guitarist wrote in a caption on the photo-sharing app.
