Tom DeLonge confirmed today that Blink-182 are finally in the studio working on a follow-up to their 2011 release, Neighborhoods.

DeLonge took to Instagram to announce the news saying, “Rehearsals start today… And yes there will be a new album #SorryForTheWait #Blink.”

“It always happens when the three of us are together in a room,” Mark Hoppus told Kerrang (via NME) last August. “Because when [we’re not touring], Tom lives in San Diego, Travis [Barker] lives in Los Angeles and I live in London, so we don’t really talk all that much. But then when we get in a room together, it all falls into place and we start making jokes. That’s when we start writing songs and reconnecting with everything.”

Blink-182 will play a one-off gig at London’s O2 Academy Brixton in London on Aug. 6, serving as a warm-up for the band’s headlining spot at this year’s Reading and Leeds Festivals.
