Part two of Rolling Stone's feature on blink-182 can now be read here.

If that news title didn't confuse you at all, you might be the only one. Today's exclusive is something a little bit different - we have a featured download of a cover of Blink-182's "Up All Night" by a YouTube user who calls himself "keezykabeezy." The reason the cover caught my attention is two-fold. For one, he plays the song "as if Blink had written it in the 90s," during the Enema of the State era, for clarity's sake. The result is a much faster song with vocals that almost eerily resemble what Blink actually sounded like - he hit the nail on the head for what he was going for, in my opinion. The other reason is that it's one of those cool videos shot in four squares on the screen,...

blink-182 have this animated, embeddable album cover thingy that includes links to a bunch of content (one of them being the cool AP.net contest we have going on). You can share it with friends and post it around.

Head to the replies to watch Blink-182's conversation with Google+ from yesterday. The band's new album, Neighborhoods, is also on sale for $5 on Amazon MP3.
Alex DiVincenzo on 10/06/11 - 08:40 AM
Mark Hoppus has done some audio commentary for each track on Neighborhoods. You can hear it on Spotify. The band is also currently on youtube answering questions.

It's contest time! One of the long-term goals of this website is to introduce you, the reader, to new music. We love it when you check out a new band we're posting about, reviewing, or you see a member talking about in the forums. That's one of the main reasons we do what we do. It was behind that motive that this website moved from being a fan site to a full-blown community. Now, the two bands we're running a contest for today (blink-182 and My Chemical Romance) don't really need any introduction. They're two of the biggest bands in our entire little ecosystem. However, they weren't always selling out stadiums. Back in the day ... they were small bands, just begging for fans...
Jason Tate on 10/05/11 - 12:27 PM
OK, now all the numbers are in. Blink-182 sold close to 155k copies of their new album. They're debuting at number two on the US charts.
Jason Tate on 10/04/11 - 01:26 PM
Edit: Whoops. We made a mistake. These numbers are only given about 54% of the total data. Sorry for the confusion.

Blink-182 sold just under 76,000 copies of Neighborhoods in its first week. That was good for third on the charts, behind J-Cole and Adele. The entire top 10 can be seen in the replies.

Last night I was fortunate enough to attend a screening of LOVE with Tom DeLonge, a film by William Eubank featuring a score by Angels and Airwaves. You can read my thoughts on the film here. I was also able to talk with DeLonge a bit about the upcoming Angels and Airwaves release, LOVE Pt. II, writing for Neighborhoods and our ideas of punk rock as we grow up. You can read that interview here.
Adam Pfleider on 09/29/11 - 10:20 AM
Early estimates are that Blink-182's new album, Neighborhoods, will sell between 130-150k in their first week. This will probably put them around #2 on the charts, behind J. Cole. Not too shabby for a band that's been away for 6 years.
Jason Tate on 09/28/11 - 11:56 AM

Today we have one of my favorite interviews I've had the pleasure of doing on the website. It's with Chris Holmes, the co-producer/engineer of Blink-182's Neighborhoods. The idea was to really look behind the scenes of the recording of the new album and get a different perspective on the process. I think the end result is something very unique and something that all fans of the band will enjoy reading. You can read the full thing here - and feel free to share.

I recently was able to talk with Chris Holmes, one of the main engineers and co-producers behind the new Blink 182 album. While I work on putting the entire interview together (which should be in the next day or two), I thought I would post a little snippet from it to whet the appetite. One of the goals of the interview was to look behind the scenes at how the album itself was recorded. I know a lot of people are interested in the techniques used and what the recording process itself was like for the first new blink songs in years. So check out the little tid-bit below, and I'll be posting the full interview as soon as I can.

Quite a few of your favorite musicians are now dads. A new film, titled "The F-Word," takes a look at what happens when "generations ultimate anti-authoritarians – punk rockers – become society’s ultimate authorities – dads."

I saw Mark Hoppus was talking on Google+ about the new Blink 182 album. That got me thinking it may be fun to have a similar thread here; given the history the band has on this site. So, what are your favorite new songs from Neighborhoods? I've got to say that "After Midnight", "Wishing Well," and "Kaleidoscope" are early favorites. It looks like the general consensus is that it was well worth the wait.

Blink 182 has "a new kind of album presale" up here. Each presale is entered to win a variety of limited and personal items, and every preorder gets some sort of item.

Update: Mark just tweeted that this is "incorrect," I would bet based on what Chris Holmes tweeted yesterday - he is referencing the order of the songs - but the titles could change as well. The information in the post comes from a document sent by UMGD.

Update #2: Mark has clarified the songs are correct, the sequencing is not. The band is working on sequencing today and that "some song titles will probably change, but those are the songs that will comprise Neighborhoods."

I can say with good authority, this is the current track listing for the new Blink 182 album, Neighborhoods - complete with the deluxe edition bonus tracks. The album hits stores 9/27.

Crowder-Schaefer of Mightier Than Sword Records. Aside from the fact that I conducted the interview, you should check it out because R.J. talks about how his business works, his thoughts on preorders and he reveals some info about how he got around to pressing the Blink-182 discography.
