Blink-182 Announce Eighth Studio Album

Somewhat confusingly, it’s called NINE.

Pop punk icons blink-182 are back with an all-caps NINE, their forthcoming studio album, whose cover art boasts a vibrant array of rainbow paint stripes plus the band’s name in jagged neon outline. The familiar “Parental Advisory” sticker is still there, the same one you grew accustomed to seeing on your Take Off Your Pants and Jacket purchase back in 2001, closely followed by maniacal snickering once you figured out that title’s double entendre. 

If you pre-order the record tonight, you’ll receive an instant download of new single “Darkside,” available at 12 a.m. ET, plus previously released tracks “Happy Days,” “Generational Divide” and “Blame It on My Youth.” The “Darkside” lyric video, too, is premiering at midnight. You can go here to watch

NINE is out September 20 via Columbia Records. It’s available for pre-order at 12 a.m. ET tonight here.

Blink is currently touring with Lil Wayne (for now), and you can check out dates below or click here.
