Follow Up On New Blink-182: Mark Hoppus Responds To DeLonge's Hint Of A 2011 Release

Hey Everyone!
When news hit earlier this week that guitarist/vocalist Thomas DeLonge of Blink-182 had set his priorities with side project Angels And Airwaves, pushing the highly anticipated new Blink-182 material to the proverbial back burner until 2011, fans were voicing their disappointment all over the web. Taking to Facebook, the Twitterverse, the Blogosphere and public channels of the dot com world everywhere, fans eagerly shared in their misfortune.

The promise of new material from the classic pop punk trio excited fans in countries around the world, and many seemed to feel robbed. But bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus has spoken out on the topic, making an effort to calm the fans. Over twitter, Hoppus posted:

"2011 is too far away. Gonna do all I can to have a Blink-182 album in 2010. Year Spaceship!"

...While many are thrilled with the news, some wonder now, if it might be too rushed.

It is known that both Travis Barker and Tom DeLonge have a couple other commitments to work on in studio as well as record the Blink album. Mark is doing production work for other groups but is not doing much recording. Perhaps he's more eager to get in the studio than the other two? I dont know, I'm not putting him down at all. Just saying that as much as I'd love to see a new Blink album, I wanna see one that makes me forget about that devastating Hiatus, not bring it back into effect haha.

What do you think of this promise to fans? Would you rather wait til 2011?
Rock On!
