Hey all! Happy Thursday. We're making it even happier by teaming up with ShopRadioCast to give away a brand-spanking-new copy of blink-182's new Take Off Your Pants and Jacket vinyl. It's a 12" record with three bonus 7"s - a $50 value. Here's how to win: You can enter on Facebook or Twitter. Just either share this Facebook post (and like AP.net and SRC on Facebook) or retweet this tweet (and follow AP.net and SRC on Twitter) and we will pick a winner at random by midnight EST tonight. A photo of the vinyl is in the replies. Good luck! PS: Unfortunately we must limit this to U.S. residents...

Blink-182 have posted up a signed guitar for auction.
This auction is sponsored by Republic Records and the monies raised will go to Newtown with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the "Sandy Hook School Support Fund" set up through Newtown Savings Bank/ United Way of Western Connecticut. United Way of Western Connecticut has waived their fees so all the money will go directly to Newtown. Funds will provide support services to the families and community that have been affected.

Today we've got a short interview with Jenna Miles, co-owner of ShopRadioCast, talking about the new pressing of Blink-182's Take Off Your Pants and Jacket. I spoke with her about why the company wanted to get involved with this release, the failed Mightier Than Sword pressing, why they decided to offer a discount to those who preordered from MTS and more. ShopRadioCast will put up their TOYPAJ pressing for preorder on March 12; check out the interview and a timeline of the ordeal of this record release here and discuss it, along with whether you'll be preordering the release, in the replies.
We've been ready to announce it for weeks but we procrastinated because we weren't sure what the...

Well, there was certainly some drama last night: Travis Barker (Blink 182) and AJ Maddah (promoter for Soundwave, which Barker is not playing) really had it out on Twitter. A lot of accusations were thrown around, by both sides, before they finally got on the phone and declared it was a "huge" misunderstanding. The post that started it all was an instagram from Travis to his fans apologizing for missing the Australian tour.

Travis Barker will be sitting out Blink-182's upcoming Australian tour due to his fear of flying. Brooks Wackerman of Bad Religion will be filling in.
The trip to Australia was planned during our European tour last summer. The band knew the chances of Travis overcoming his fear of flying, which was magnified after the horrible plane crash in 2008, would be a challenge, but we wanted to play for our fans in Australia nonetheless. The three of us tried all measures to get us all there in full form. Travis has been working to overcome his fear of flying. Since we now know we have to make the trip without Travis our friend Brooks Wackerman (Bad Religion, Tenacious D) has stepped...

I've posted up our interview with Chris Holmes, the engineer behind the new Blink-182 EP.
From The InterviewI'll echo what I've said before and say that if you're hearing similarities that's natural. The members are the same. I'd say if you listen through the blink catalog you can hear +44 and AVA before +44 and AVA existed.

Blink-182's new Dogs Eating Dogs EP is now available for pre-order on iTunes. I've been listening to it the past few days, and as a huge Blink fan, I'm not let down at all. Took a few listens for it to all set in, getting new Blink music still feels like it shouldn't be happening. There's a lot of dual vocals (although definitely more Tom centric), and a lot of energy ... fans of the band's last two albums are going to love it. I think that "Dogs Eating Dogs" and "Pretty Little Girl" are the two stand-outs ... although the weird spoken/rap part of the latter is taking some getting used to.

Because its been at least a week since we've had any Blink-182 news: Mark Hoppus has posted a picture of himself in the recording studio, it looks like more songs are being recorded.

Update: According to a poster in the replies, this is additional harmonies being recorded, not new tunes.

Travis Barker told Rolling Stone that the new Blink 182 EP is a hundred times better than Neighborhoods.
From The ArticleTo me already, this EP is a hundred times better than Neighborhoods," says Barker, referring to the band's 2011 reunion album. "Because we're all in a room together." The trio recorded nearly all of Neighborhoods remotely, emailing the tracks back and forth to each other. "There's some songs on there that I love, but for the most part it was disconnected," Barker recalls. "It was like, 'You do this part in your studio, and then you're gonna play on it and send it back to me.' When we're not in the studio together, you don't have the opportunity to gel off each other.
