A video review on Nine, the eighth full album from pop-punk heroes Blink-182. This is the follow up to 2016’s California where Matt Skiba joined the lineup. How does the new album hold up to the band’s back catalogue as well as being something strong in the upswing of rock in 2019?
Blink-182 (often stylized as blink-182; pronounced “blink one-eighty-two”) is an American rock band formed in Poway, California in 1992. Since 2015, the lineup of the band has consisted of bass guitarist and vocalist Mark Hoppus, drummer Travis Barker, and guitarist and vocalist Matt Skiba. Founded by Hoppus, guitarist and vocalist Tom DeLonge, and drummer Scott Raynor, the band emerged from the Southern California punk scene of the early 1990s and first gained notoriety for high-energy live shows and irreverent lyrical toilet humor.
Nine is the upcoming eighth studio album by American rock band Blink-182, set to be released on September 20, 2019 through Columbia Records. Blink-182—composed of bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus, guitarist/vocalist Matt Skiba, and drummer Travis Barker—began developing the album after fulfilling touring obligations for their previous release, California (2016). While Nine builds upon the band’s collaboration with producer John Feldmann—who also produced California—it also explores outside producers and songwriters. During the recording process, the band worked with several teams, including Captain Cuts, the Futuristics, and producer Tim Pagnotta. #blink182 #Nine #Darkside #HappyDays #PopPunk #Rocked #AlbumReview #Review
