Nah. It's gonna be tail end of summer at the earliest, I'm afraid. Oh well.

Not believing anything until a release date is confirmed. Im still skeptical as hell considering I haven't seen a studio update with all three of them in the same room. And does the "not being in the same room, phoning ideas, thing really work?" Cmon.

Cool interview but I hate the way they are writing and recording the album. feels so cold and distance. But that's just me

Absolutely nothing new, all I've heard is "just a few more months", I'll still be stoked, but I'm checking other stuff out in the meantime.

I have faith in their word. If we don't get an album by at LEAST early August, I'll be disappointed.

Yea, there's no way this is coming out in early-to-mid summer. Take your time when you finally have it, don't knock this out super quick if it's not ready.

Yeah, and you can't help but to think about when they broke up. This is how Tom wanted to record a new record and the other two were against it, talking about how it would "lessen the quality of the music" or something. Not looking into it too much, but I just know as a musician, I wouldn't want to write songs with my band like that.... especially if I were them because their whole dynamic is based off of their chemistry between all three of them.

September if we are lucky.

This. I'm still saying they will be done RECORDING by June... then it will be out in the fall.

Blink 182 is the reason these guys can go off and do other projects.. So why aren't they putting their full attention to this band instead of working with the other side projects and wasting time! However, 2 years for an album isn't bad when you consider it took Incubus 5 years between Light Grenades and their upcoming album.. So I guess I'll just keep my hopes up that when it does finally come out, it'll be well worth the wait.
