Travis Barker has revealed that a new Blink 182 album is due in 2021.

It's wasn't the only evidence we've that Blink 182 and their former singer were on much better terms in 2020.
When asked about the chances of reuniting with his bandmates, DeLonge told Rolling Stone: "Everyone wants to know, 'Are you guys gonna play again?' Yeah, of course we are. We just gotta figure out the timing, how it works for everybody.
"Right now Angels and Airwaves is on a roll. We’re getting ready to put out the best record we’ve ever made. So I’m really busy with that."
