As some people expected a Blink 182 announcement when bassist Mark Hoppus called a press conference, Hoppus has posted an update on his blog with regards to the pop-punk trio:

In June and July we will be at the rehearsal spot, getting ready for the European tour this summer, and writing new songs. When the European tour is finished, we head back and play ONE SHOW in Southern California. Then that is IT for live shows for the rest of 2010. Why? Because we'll be in the studio recording the new blink-182 album. Until it is finished. I cannot be more clear on this: new blink-182 music is on the way.

Believe me, when we have new blink-182 music for you all, we will make it LOUD AND CLEAR. We'll be screaming about it. You won't be able to get away from us talking about it. And that moment is on the way. All of us have ideas from before and after the tour last summer, and are excited to get into the studio and see those ideas come to light. Simple as that.

The band released their last studio album, Blink 182, in 2003.
