Tom DeLonge recently talked with Gigwise.
Iím not totally sure how itís going to work but the goal is to find an area or an environment thatís different and not just a normal studio to be together as were architect the songs and inspire each other in ways that we did back in that timeframe. I think if we can pull off those few things weíll be in really really good shape. Weíve always done what we liked, and on the Untitled record there was a lot of debate where we thought our fans wouldnít even like it, but I think we succeeded by sticking to what we wanted to do, and it turned out to be the one that the fans like the most.

A petition has been started by a local to have Attila removed from Skate and Surf.
Last year, the legendary Skate and Surf Festival returned to Asbury Park after ten years away. While the man behind the scenes, John D, has the city's best interest at heart, he has made careless mistakes when booking certain performers. Last year, upon moving the festival to Asbury, the city required he remove the hip hop artist DMX from the bill, citing homophobia in his music. This year, a band called Attila is on his festival's lineup.
