2019 album also available on CD..
Grammy-nominated veteran California skate-punk rock trio Blink-182 are releasing their long awaited new album ‘Nine’, the bands eight studio album which features the band’s current Tom-DeLonge-less lineup, which has been in place since 2015: Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker, and Matt Skiba (of Alkaline Trio fame).
Blink-182 are known for playing catchy melodies, as well as their satirical toilet humour. Known as a band that plays up–tempo songs with prominent major–chord harmonies, often digitally mixed, to provide a much cleaner sound than typical punk/rock recordings generally employing distortion and ragged analogue mixes to achieve the opposite effect and their new album follows on in true Blink-182 form. "I think we're taking everything that we've done in the past and building on it. Which is what we want to always be doing. The album will be more experimental than some past material," vocalist Mark Hoppus said.
Albeit the title has left some fans scratching their head regards the title, should it not be named ‘Eight’? So Hoppus took to Reddit to explain “NINE. this is our ninth album, as decided by me and travis,” he began. “some count buddha, some not. some count the mark tom and travis show. some count greatest hits. some count dogs eating dogs. i’m counting buddha, cheshire cat, dude ranch, enema of the state, toypaj, untitled, neighbourhoods, califronia, and now NINE.” Mark continued “Nine is also the number of universal love. and the number of uranus. remember to like and smash that subscribe button, or whatever it is the kids say now”.
