Mark Hoppus "stoked" about new Blink-182 songs

Weeks ago, Billboard Magazine reported that Blink-182 was ". . . committed to deliver[ing] the as-yet-untitled, self produced [album] to Geffen [the band's record label] on July 31, with a single due July 3." Blink-182 vocalist and bassist, Mark Hoppus, has provided fans with some samplings of the songs (he released lyrics and vocal recordings at different times), but as of now, no one has any idea what modern-day Blink will sound like. Hoppus, however, posted the following on his Tumblr account five days ago:

1230 at night here in los angeles. sitting on the floor of my hotel room, listening to the first mix of the first track to come back from the new album. stoked beyond words to be listening to new music from our band. on the OTHER side of the creative process. listening to the songs not to figure out what and if it needs more of. listening just to hear the music. i love this song, and the mixer did a great job, it sounds amazing. I can't wait until this album comes out, and i hope that when it does you all are as excited as i am sitting here by myself in the middle of the night, cross-leeged on the floor of a hotel room, with headphones on, listening to this song over and over. thank you for supporting our band. blink-182 life, for life.

If Hoppus, an experienced and discerning music producer, is this excited about his band's new sound, fans should be as well. Let's hope they announce an official release date soon.
