Blink-182 Schlagzeuger Travis Baker hat in einem Interview mit Billboard bestätigt, dass ein neues Blink-182 Album so gut wie fertig sei und musikalisch sehr nah an dem selbstbetitelten 2003er Album ist. Außerdem soll es bereits im April, Mai oder Juni auf den Markt kommen. Travis Baker erklärt:

 „I’m really excited because we’re about 70 percent finished with our album. I feel like this is the closest we’ve come to something like [2003’s] Blink-182 since that album, which is one of my favorite Blink albums by far. I feel like ‚California‘ was similar to ‚Enema of the State‘ and ‚Take Off Your Pants and Jacket‘: re-establishing the band, giving fans what they really want and expect from Blink. Now that we got that out of our system naturally, we’re not writing like that this time. It’s more experimental. It’s not like you’re listening and thinking, „Oh I’ve heard that before, oh I can compare this to this other song.“ With this album we’re reestablishing new songs, new rhythms, new ideas. Where I look back at ‚California‘, you could compare ‚Cynical‘ to other fast songs we’ve done. I could put ‚She’s Out Of Her Mind‘ down as a brother-sister record to ‚Rock Show‘ or ‚First Date‘. The songs on the new album don’t have any brothers or sisters. They don’t sound like anything we’ve done before. Songs on self-titled like ‚Feeling This‘ and ‚I Miss You‘, I really feel like those didn’t sound like anything Blink had touched on before. I just know were doing that again. That’s exciting to me.“

Das letzte Blink-182 Album „California“ kam 2016 auf den Markt und war das erste Album der Band ohne Tom DeLong.
