Rockfreaks.net recently interviewed Mark Hoppus of Blink-182. They talk of going into the studio at the end of the year to record a new album (Mark mentions moving back to LA at the end of the summer for the recording process). He also mentions that he'd "love to" do another +44 album at some point, but there aren't any plans yet for one.

The LA Times is reporting that House of Blues on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood will be torn down to make room for more hotels and condos. Pretty sure this is the first place I saw Something Corporate, Gym Class Heroes, The Juliana Theory, and countless other bands during my collegiate stint in California.
"Regarding the story, our legendary House of Blues on Sunset Boulevard – the flagship for 20 years of our popular venues around the country – will operate business as usual while we look for a new home," the statement said. "We have a terrific relationship with our landlord who has other plans to develop the property and we’re working together on a very smooth transition. We have...
Writing from my bunk to let you know that my doctor and my vocal coach have told me I can’t play tonight either. I have a chest infection and … Something called "exhaustion". Ha. Words in this tiny little message cannot begin to express my frustration, sadness, and overall loopiness (the latter is likely just from the cortisone and antibiotics…ugh.)
Corpus Christi, you’ve been on my mind since I woke up this afternoon and Dallas, you’ll be on my mind the rest of the night. I absolutely hate canceling anything. Admitting defeat is a tough thing for this gal.

Lenet, who bought a three-day pass to the festival, did not go back Saturday and Sunday. He said he’s not missed more than a day or two of the festival in the last five or six years. "This will probably be the end of it for me," he said.

You can check out our new interview with Terrorhere. In the interview, it's revealed the band is working on their sixth full length record, titled The 25th Hour.
Each person is doing something for the band. Some bands just hand everything over to someone else and they're like "Here, take care of all the work", but we don't do that and we're always on tour, so 24 hours in a day is almost not enough for us, we go above and beyond that. That's what I saw right away, and I thought it was a great album title.
