OMFG!!! BLINK182 ARE BACK!!!

happiest day evarrrrr! <3

They announced on their official website yesterday that they're back in the studio, writing and recording a new album, and that they'll be touring the world again in summer 09! :D

As soon as I heard the news I went back and listened to all my old blink albums and got awfully nostalgic :)

I started listening to blink around about 1999/2000 when enema of the state first came out, and subsequently went back and bought their 2 previous albums, and bought their following 2 albums before they went on a break. They're one of those bands for me, who have a lot of strong memories attached to their music.

Being 15. Sitting outside the rowing club in durham on a friday night with my friends, drinking vodka and 15p cherryade mixed together in a plastic bottle; listening to blink182 and other rock music of the time blarring out of the 'under18 rock night' held at the rowing club. Walking through newton hall, listening to their music on my portable cd player. Using quotes from their songs to describe my feelings for my friends, and my parents. Having secret house parties whenever my mum would go away for the weekend, playing "I want to fuck a dog in the ass" full volume and singing along like an idiot with all of my friends xD.

So many great memories! :D

Which is why I'm completely stoked to have them back together again! I'm definitely going to have to see them live if they come to the UK this summer!


As a little footnote to this blog post, I'm still not technically back off my internet hiatus :P I haven't been on youtube/twitter/skype at all since yesterday morning, and have only been online occasionally to check my emails. It's been nice having a little break.. although I'm starting to miss the internetz already, so I'll no doubt be back in the full swing of things pretty soon xD

Much love <3

they are?! i'm so happy (:! i'm cool with angels & airwaves, but blink is just plain awesome. i only have enema of the state, but i really like blink-182 (the album).
i remember when i first heard them, i was in grade school, like... 2nd grade status. i honestly didn't like it at all. when i was in 5th grade, i saw the slutty nurse on the cover, and got all immature, "OMGGGG YOU CAN SEE HER BOOBS WOW" then, i started to get into it. which makes me a late bloomer!! but still :) glad to hear they're back.
