I'm honestly getting the feeling that there is no album and every time someone asks them about it they just make something up to appease fans. I wouldn't be surprised if at some point a member of Blink goes, oh yeah the album is TOTALLY almost finished there's loads of country songs on it and a swarthy rap number and at least three songs that consist solely of Mark's vocals over a melancholy piano.
Every time I listen to AVA I notice that piano, string roll thing that pretty much sounds exactly like Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb" (the chorus)(?) and it bothers the shit out of me. Here's hoping they don't recycle it for the new album..
