This week's "We're No. 1" feature on AV Club looks back when Blink-182's Take Off Your Pants and Jacket debuted as the #1 album on the Billboard Top 200 the week of June 30th, 2001.

In a new Q&A with Blink-182, the band talk about meeting with labels and thinking about producers for their next album -- which they hope to have out next year.
This whole tour, this whole experience is about getting ready for that next record. We've been meeting with labels, we've been talking about producers, trying to figure out internally what the plan is for Blink. We're not against it. If it's the right label and the right partnership and the right vibe or we could do it ourselves or use a distributor. There are so many options for bands now.

A video interview with Blink-182 where they discuss their 9/11 benefit show can be found on MTV.
"We just want to put on a show, hopefully bring some joy and happiness and perhaps some release," he told MTV News. "It's a pretty awful day, so we think people could benefit from a Blink show."

Read my review of Blink-182's recent show in Uncasville, CT with Taking Back Sunday, Four Year Strong and New Beat Fund. All of my photos can be found here.
It's a shame, for fans' sake, that this isn't a longer tour, as the strong line-up fits well together, but I'm happy to have been able to see it. Here's to hoping we don't have to wait another two years before Blink 182 tours the country again, because they remain one of the most fun live shows.

According to NME, Blink-182 will be releasing a new album in the late spring/early summer of 2014. Mark Hoppus recently talked to Kerrang! and noted that the band is hoping to head into the studio at the start of next year and hopefully release the new LP shortly after.
"We haven't thought about any new songs yet," said Hoppus, but explained that the band will write the new album when they reconvene in the studio. "It always happens when the three of us are together in a room," said Hoppus of writing. "Because when [we're not touring], Tom lives in San Diego, Travis lives in Los Angeles and I live in London, so we don't really talk all that much. But then when we get in a room...

Riot Fest has announced its day-by-day lineups, which can be found in full in the replies. Fall Out Boy are your Friday headliners with Blink-182 on Saturday and The Replacements on Sunday. Also, since you're wondering, Brand New is billed fourth for Sunday (after the Pixies and AFI). Also also, The Wonder Years and Memphis May Fire were added today. Riot Fest tickets are available here.

Cracked has posted four reasons Tom DeLonge was abducted by aliens.
I'll go one step further and say that Tom DeLonge is Klaatu, albeit the charming and likeable one from the 1951 original and not the Keanu Reeves corpse-eyed mandroid from the 2008 remake.

Blink-182 have posted up a signed guitar for auction.
This auction is sponsored by Republic Records and the monies raised will go to Newtown with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the "Sandy Hook School Support Fund" set up through Newtown Savings Bank/ United Way of Western Connecticut. United Way of Western Connecticut has waived their fees so all the money will go directly to Newtown. Funds will provide support services to the families and community that have been affected.

Today we've got a short interview with Jenna Miles, co-owner of ShopRadioCast, talking about the new pressing of Blink-182's Take Off Your Pants and Jacket. I spoke with her about why the company wanted to get involved with this release, the failed Mightier Than Sword pressing, why they decided to offer a discount to those who preordered from MTS and more. ShopRadioCast will put up their TOYPAJ pressing for preorder on March 12; check out the interview and a timeline of the ordeal of this record release here and discuss it, along with whether you'll be preordering the release, in the replies.

Well, there was certainly some drama last night: Travis Barker (Blink 182) and AJ Maddah (promoter for Soundwave, which Barker is not playing) really had it out on Twitter. A lot of accusations were thrown around, by both sides, before they finally got on the phone and declared it was a "huge" misunderstanding. The post that started it all was an instagram from Travis to his fans apologizing for missing the Australian tour.

Travis Barker will be sitting out Blink-182's upcoming Australian tour due to his fear of flying. Brooks Wackerman of Bad Religion will be filling in.
The trip to Australia was planned during our European tour last summer. The band knew the chances of Travis overcoming his fear of flying, which was magnified after the horrible plane crash in 2008, would be a challenge, but we wanted to play for our fans in Australia nonetheless. The three of us tried all measures to get us all there in full form. Travis has been working to overcome his fear of flying. Since we now know we have to make the trip without Travis our friend Brooks Wackerman (Bad Religion, Tenacious D) has stepped...

Fender has posted up their picks for "top 10 most instantly recognizable guitar riffs" -- pretty hard to argue with most of these, but what would you add? While not anywhere near the classic status of all the songs on this list, I'd say Blink-182's "Dammit" has one of those riffs.

I've posted up our interview with Chris Holmes, the engineer behind the new Blink-182 EP.
From The InterviewI'll echo what I've said before and say that if you're hearing similarities that's natural. The members are the same. I'd say if you listen through the blink catalog you can hear +44 and AVA before +44 and AVA existed.
