    Listened to the Neighborhoods album today after a long time. Fuck it! That album was awesome. I might be alone with that opinion but that’s a really great adult rock record. Always loved it and it has aged very well. Thinking about the disfunction in the band at that time and how it was recorded makes it even better.

    To me, Mark has become a bit of a douche, hypocrite, and overall less genuine and less funny over recent years. He went from “we’ll only ever record in the same room together” to writing music apart and patching songs together through emails, to getting other people to write his music. I’m not a fan of his “first thought, best thought” approach and the farther he steers the band into pop, the more desperate the band sounds. Then also factor in kicking the fan off stage for the ATST cover and his asshole remarks, and his tweets about being butt hurt over the fan reactions to the latest songs. Just comes off as an arrogant prick who is super insecure about his music and image. this is coming from someone that really enjoyed his personality and music up until California.

    This song is an absolute force of nature. How did we get from this to BIOMY? Absolutely disgusting and Mark should be fucking ashamed of himself. Not only that but Travis needs a good fucking look in the mirror too. His drumming has gone down the shitter recently. The one guy we could always count on and he’s releasing songs with some instagram slag or whatever the fuck she is

    I can't believe that nothing ever really took the place of how great MySpace music pages were back in the day. Facebook never had anything remotely similar. While general social media stuff transferred over to Facebook, that kind of music page died with MySpace.

    I felt this way originally as well, but it's become clear Tom was the heart and inspiration in developing Blink's sound and Mark's true passion comes from wanting to stay relevant and make money by producing lowest-common-denominator pop music. Blink has reverted back to sounding like the bands that copied them, it's sad.

    Update: This timeline is out of date! Please go to the new timeline website to read. Original contents: PART ONE (1992-2002) PART TWO (2003-present) Here you'll find a hugely documented history of Blink -- ranging from big personnel changes and album releases, to the minutiae like tour dates, random television appearances, and interviews. This information is spread out over multiple posts ('cause it's SO LONG) but hopefully you can keep up (and maybe we can reformat this one day). All of the information presented here is entirely factual, mostly unbiased (wink!), and more often than not are hyperlinked with sources for the info. The goal of this is to clear up inconsistencies in the band's history and provide a nice resource for fans. MAJOR thanks: @Thibaut182, who's contributed to this thread with frequency for years. Since I posted the timeline, only I can edit it, which I can do occasionally (every few months). If Thibaut could, he would. While I formatted all this info and typed it, Thibaut's been finding ticket stubs, videos, posters, flyers, and photos from shows. For all the coolest stuff, you have him to thank. Other contributors/special thanks: Mark "Cheetah" Steinberger, who documented the band on the official blink website between 2001-05. @Zoltan, who first attempted something like this in 2014. @Cheerios4u98, who began documenting crazy changes in the band in early 2015 and inspired this thread. @daveyjones, who joined here in 2015 and was a big fan in the Cheshire/Dude Ranch days. He's provided lots of awesome info on their history, show dates, restored posters, and random little things here and there. Whoever runs the site http://en.blink182forever.com/, as they have seemingly documented the band's every move since 2000. Important dates are in red Tour dates in blue. If you see a tour date with a * next to it, it was copied over from K£V¥Ñ-¹8², who compiled tour dates for the band years ago. While they by and large check out in terms of sourced information, these are still unsourced. 1972 3/15/1972: Mark Hoppus is born to Tex Hoppus and Kerry Wernz in Ridgecrest, California. 1975 11/14/1975: Travis Barker is born to Randy and Gloria Barker in Fontana, California. 12/13/1975: Tom DeLonge is born to Thomas and Connie DeLonge in Poway, California. 1978 5/23/1978: Scott Raynor is born. 1979 Undated: Travis receives his first drum kit from his mother, which will be his only kit until he is 15. 1980 Undated: Mark's parents divorce, leaving an indelible impression on him. Undated: Travis begins taking drum lessons with a drummer named Thomas Hogan, who would expose him to many different playing styles. At this time, he also began taking trumpet lessons. 1983 Undated: Tom begins skateboarding. His love of the sport later becomes integral to his friendships in high school, which helped create Blink. 1986 12/25/1986 (est): Tom DeLonge, then a sixth grader, receives a guitar as a Christmas gift from friends. 1987 8/1987 (undated): Tom, a seventh grader, visits a friend in Oregon who introduces him to punk rock through bands such as Stiff Little Fingers, Dinosaur Jr and the Descendents. 1988 3/4/1988: Mark attends his first-ever concert: They Might Be Giants at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. 11/13/1988: One of Mark's earliest bands, The Attic Children, records a demo tape of several songs -- mostly covers of the Cure -- so that Mark can "send it back to Virginia." It surfaced online in 2004/5 from longtime fan daveyjones, who received it from close friend of the band, Kerry Key. 1989 Undated: Mark returns to his hometown of Ridgecrest. At this time, he is playing in a band named Of All Things with friends, covering songs by Descendents and Bad Religion. Undated: Scott Raynor forms a band with friend Ryan Kennedy to perform at a school competition -- "a kind of 'show and tell' thing." 5/1989: Travis's mother is diagnosed with cancer. 8/1989: Travis loses his mother to cancer one day before first attending high school. It is this event that spurs him to begin taking his drumming seriously. 1990 5/1990: Mark graduates from Burroughs High School. Here is video footage of Mark during his senior year, and possible footage of him performing "Silly Girl" by the Descendents at their graduation party. 1992 YEAR IN REVIEW: Blink-182 is founded. 1-5/1992 (undated): Tom DeLonge, then in his junior year at Poway High School, is expelled after showing up inebriated to a basketball game. He is forced to attend the nearby Rancho Bernardo High School, where he befriends Kerry Key, a musician/photographer, and his girlfriend, Anne Hoppus. At RBNS, Tom enters into a Battle of the Bands competition, performing his original song "Who's Gonna Shave Your Back Tonight?" Drummer Scott Raynor is in attendance, and is later introduced to DeLonge at a party by friend Paul Scott. They soon begin playing music together, shifting through a variety of bassists, according to Joe Shooman in Blink-182: The Bands, the Breakdown & the Return. 8/2/1992: The birth of Blink-182: Mark moves back to San Diego and his sister introduces him to Tom. They begin writing songs in his garage that night. Date confirmation here. 8/1992 (undated): Mark begins attending college at California State University, San Marcos, studying to become an English teacher. 1993 YEAR IN REVIEW: The band records their first two demo tapes -- Flyswatter and Demo No.2. Undated (Early 1993): Mark begins working at the Wherehouse, a chain record store in San Diego, managed by Patrick Secor. He and Secor bond over music. At some point, Mark is forced to choose between his girlfriend and the band, and leaves briefly. Scott later recalls that "a couple of demos" were created on a four track recorder with Tom, Scott, and their friend, Cam Jones on bass (Jones later of the Iconoclasts, who produced a split EP with blink the following year titled Short Bus). Promptly, Mark breaks up with his girlfriend and returns to the group. Blink performs their first shows. According to Anne Hoppus, author of Tales from Beneath Your Mom, the band's first performance took place at a 21+ venue named the Spirit Club. "Every five minutes," the owner came to tell them to "turn it down," eventually telling them to stop after 15 minutes. He gave them Snapples for their effort. Pat Secor, quoted in Blink 182 - The Band, The Breakdown & The Return, remembered it to be "at a high school. They played a lunchtime concert." The 4/7/1993 show at SOMA was promoted as the band's "first show" when Tom sold reproduced fliers for those concerts on Reissued in 2014. Kerry Key, friend of the band, says the first show was at a venue called the Gorilla Pit (see 10/1993 date below). Their second show, according to Anne in TFBYM, was an "after-hours" in-store performance at Alley Mrs. Meat Records -- which Mark remembered as their first show in a 1994 interview with a zine. 4/1993 (undated): The band performs at Alley Mrs. Meat Music Store and Cafe in San Diego, California. Flyer 4/7/1993: The band performs at SOMA in San Diego, California. This is the earliest recorded date for a blink concert. Flyer In 2014, Tom sells reproduced fliers for the concert on the app Reissued, calling it the band's "first show". 5/1993 (undated): The band's first-ever recording, the demo Flyswatter, is recorded on a four-track recorder in Scott's bedroom. Tom graduates from Poway High School. Travis graduates from Fontana High School. 5/28/1993: The band performs at SOMA in San Diego, California. Setlist, poster (restored), poster (unrestored) Other bands included Quickdumb, Big Schlog, Product and Loophole. In 2014, Tom sells reproduced setlists for the concert on the app Reissued. 10/1993: The band performs at the Gorilla Pit. Kerry Key snaps photos, and later dubs them "the first Blink show" when he uploads them to Flickr in 2012. It is possible that his date was mistaken, and their show at the Gorilla Pit - if it was indeed their first performance - was in October 1992. Undated: A second demo, known only as Demo #2, is recorded. It later surfaced online from longtime fan daveyjones in 2004/5. The original demo is just a blank cassette; some versions floating around online have fake inserts/etc. Undated (Late 1993): Pat Secor begins hanging out with the band, attending rehearsals. According to him, as the band grew more competent from performing live, they were eager to "put out a record." 1994 YEAR IN REVIEW: The band records and releases a self-titled cassette demo, later titled Buddha. They sign to Cargo Records and record their first official full-length, Cheshire Cat. They also release the EP Short Bus. Undated: Tom, then 18, witnesses the divorce of his mother and father, prompting him to move out. The band's "first big show," according to TFBYM, occurred at SOMA on a Thursday night when blink opened for Face to Face. Various other places blink played besides SOMA according to TFBYM: Soul Kitchen in El Cajon, YMCAs, Elks Lodges. 1/1994 (undated): The band records the Buddha cassette -- then just a self-titled demo -- at local studio Doubletime Recordings "in twelve hours." It is funded by Pat Secor. Secor was looking to start a label, which he called Filter Records, and fronted the trio the money. In an interview later that year, Mark says it cost a "few hundred dollars" to make, and was recorded "over Christmas break." He says the band had it completed by January. 4/9/1994: The band performs at SOMA in San Diego, California. Poster Other bands included Papillon, Product, Grip, and Loophole. 4/23/1994: The band performs at SOMA in San Diego, California. Flyer, Flyer (restored, but incorrect date) 6/4/1994: The band performs at Cafe Chabalaba in San Diego, California. Flyer Other bands include the Iconoclasts. 6/9/1994: The band is in the studio at Doubletime in San Diego, recording guitars and backing vocals for two songs -- "Wasting Time" and "Does My Breath Smell?" -- that appear on the split Short Bus EP, release date unknown (but sometime thereafter, obviously). This date is thanks to the studio engineer, Jeff Forrest, who posted the original tracking sheets online in 2018. Image 6/17/1994: The band performs at SOMA in San Diego, California.

Poster Other bands included Unwritten Law, No Use for a Name, and the Vandals. Late 1994 (undated): Scott Raynor's family moves to Reno, Nevada. Both Anne Hoppus in TFBYM and Joe Shooman credit his brief replacement as their friend Mike Krull. Mark says in a later interview that the band played two shows with him. According to TFBYM, "it felt wrong without Scott" and the band began flying him out to shows. The band signs to Cargo Records with help of Brahm Goodis, son of the label's president Eric Goodis, and O, local stalwart in the music scene and guitarist for Fluf, who were on Cargo. According to Davey Quinn of Tiltwheel (the band's earliest Internet ambassador) via archived posts from the newsgroup alt.punk: Blink "was a defunct band when eric cargo's kid asked pops to sign blink(nothing wrong with that). blink reformed to record and sign contracts." Perhaps they dissolved briefly when Scott was moving to Reno? Cheshire Cat -- then titled Inbreed --is recorded at Westbeach Recorders in Los Angeles. Unsatisfied with some aspects of the recordings, they take the reels to Doubletime and re-record guitar tracks and vocals. Mark is interviewed for a local zine. He discusses the Cheshire recording sessions, the "techno band" with a similar name, and their new drummer, Mike. Production of sleeves for Cheshire Cat are delayed, but CDs and cassettes are pressed before the end of the year. The band begins selling a small number of advance cassettes of the album. Due to this, all copies of Cheshire Cat (sans this one) bear a 1994 copyright date, leading to confusion about its release date for a number of years. For example, plenty of sites, including Amazon, still list its release date as a year earlier, rather than February 1995. 9/2/1994: The band performs at SOMA in San Diego, California.* 10/2/1994: The band returns to Doubletime to track additional guitar and vocals, as well as complete mixing. This date is thanks to the studio engineer, Jeff Forrest, who posted the original tracking sheets online in 2018. Image 10/7/1994: The band performs at SOMA in San Diego, California.* 10/15/1994: The band performs at Dream Street in San Diego, California.

Poster Other bands include Korn (headliner), Unwritten Law, and Deftones. 12/31/1994: The band performs at SOMA in San Diego, California, as a part of SOMA's New Year Bash. Poster, ticket stub Undated: Songs from a mysterious Buddha "promo" have circulated online, which includes early versions of "A New Hope" ("Princess Leia") and "Enthused" ("Strung Out"), a song titled "Voyeur" bearing no resemblance to the song of the same name on Dude Ranch, the first-ever appearances of "The Girl Next Door" and "Don't" prior to the 1998 Buddha remaster, plus some songs from Cheshire Cat and Short Bus. Its existence is really the only remaining mystery regarding this timeline. It seems to have surfaced online in the early 2000s. While it's possible it's a fan mash-up consisting of dirty cassette versions of already-released songs, that doesn't explain the inclusion of two previously unreleased demos and one unreleased original. If anyone has any info on this anomaly, let me know! 1995 YEAR IN REVIEW: Blink become Blink-182, they release their debut album, Cheshire Cat, and embark on their first national tour, supporting the surf video GoodTimes. 1/21/1995: Davey Quinn of Tiltwheel confirms that Scott Raynor has "rejoined" the band, flying in for shows from Reno. He claims the band has been performing very little since his departure due to his "situation" (i.e., family in Reno). 1/28/1995: The band performs at ? in Lancaster, California. Other bands included Tiltwheel and Skankin Pickle. 2/5/1995: Cheshire Cat is finally ready for release, as the band receives the first box of CDs from the manufacturers. Mark's mother kept the first batch of discs, and he posted a photo of the box on social media in 2018. Image 1, Image 2 2/10/1995: The band performs at the Whiskey a Go Go in Los Angeles, California. Poster Other bands included Unwriten Law, Incubus, Ten Foot Pole, and Addicts for the Automatic. 2/1995 (undated): Stiff Pole Records releases Six Pack to Go, a compilation album. Tiltwheel is featured with a song titled "Bl'ink". Quinn says on alt.punk that it is a re-written song from the band's Short Bus EP "when Tom was playing with us." The song is essentially "Does My Breath Smell?", and can be heard here. Tom's association with Tiltwheel is largely a mystery, though it's assumed he also briefly played with the band during this time period. 2/17/1995: Blink releases its debut album, Cheshire Cat, on Grilled Cheese, a newly-created division of Cargo Records. 2/24/1995: The band performs at SOMA in San Diego, California as part of an album release party for Cheshire Cat. Other bands included Strung Out, Tiltwheel, Rythym Collision and Openfast. 3/3/1995: The band performs at Huntridge Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada, as part of the Billabong S.I.A. Tradeshow Party.

Poster Other bands included Pennywise, Face to Face, Unwritten Law, and the Line. Davey Quinn, on alt.punk, records this date as 3/31/1995, though K£V¥Ñ-¹8²'s tour schedule lists it as 3/25/1995 -- it's possible it was rescheduled to 3/25. 3/30/1995: Blink gets an article in the San Diego Union Tribune. 3/31/1995: The band performs at the YMCA Skate Park in Kearny Mesa, California. Quinn notes in this alt.punk listing that the show will precede others "in Anchorage, Alaska and Valdez, Alaska" -- we have the Anchorage show recorded, but not the Valdez, hence my making mention of it here. Ticket, Poster Other bands included Dance Hall Crashers, Jughead's Revenge, and Screw 32. 4/1/1995: The band performs at Egan Civic Center in Anchorage, Alaska. Poster, flyer Other bands included Pennywise, Unwritten Law, and Dance Hall Crashers. 4/29/1995: The band performs at Missile Park in San Diego, California, as a part of May Day Festival. Poster Mid-1995 (undated): Scott officially moves back to San Diego and moves in with Mark and his sister at his mother's house. Raynor in TFBYM: "That summer I lived with Mark and his family was probably the greatest summer of my life so far. I left home at 17, came to San Diego, we bought a van, finished our first video... I had all kinds of dreams in my head and they were all coming true." The band secure Rick DeVoe as their manager. He had started a promotion company called Big Dummy under the umbrella of Bill Silva Presents. DeVoe managed Unwritten Law, was the first to promote the Offspring, and was close friends with Pennywise. DeVoe introduced the band to Rick Bonde of the Tahoe Agency, a booking agency based out of Lake Tahoe that worked with bands like Sublime. Bonde and his wife arranged several mini-tours for the band that took them outside SoCal for the first time. The trio purchase a white Chevy Beauville as a touring van, and nicknamed it "the Millennium Falcon". 6/3/1995: The band performs at Viva Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada, as part of an album release party for Litmus Green.

Poster Other bands included The Skeletones, One Eye Open, Kids of Widney High and Assorted Jelly Beans. I had this date recorded prior to finding the poster for the aforementioned show: "The band performs at the Riverport Amphitheatre in St. Louis, Missouri as a part of Pointfest 4." It didn't contain a source and was not one of Kevin-182's dates, so while probably real, it could've been in 1996. Leaving this here for now. 9/1995: The music video for "M+M's" is serviced to "independent video production companies." 9/6/1995: "M+M's" is released as a single. 9/23/1995: The band performs at SOMA in San Diego, California.

Other bands included 7 Seconds, Unwritten Law, and Sprung Monkey. This was the official first date of the GoodTimes tour. According to TFBYM, the band toured in their van ("the Falcon") and brought along Mike Lucena and Cam Jones for "moral support". This was the infamous show where Tom was arrested. From TFBYM: "Despite being warned that the Jacksonville police were cracking down on Halloween "crime," Tom, who was underage at the time, drank quite a bit. Which might still have been okay, if he hadn’t wandered out into the streets still firmly grasping his bottle of beer." Tom spent the night in jail, but DeVoe bailed him out, allowing them to continue on the tour. Ryan Key, future frontman of the band Yellowcard, was in attendance for this concert, he remembered in a 2017 interview for JUICE Singapore: "Blink was my first club punk show rock show actually. I saw them on the Cheshire Cat tour in a basement in Jacksonville, like 300 people there. I'm pretty sure that Tom DeLonge got arrested that night for indecent exposure." 11/1995 (undated): Hopeless Records releases the VHS compilation video Cinema Beer Goggles, which collects punk rock bands' music videos, including the very first release of "M+M's". 11/1/1995: The band performs at the Edge in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Undated: The band makes an "oral agreement" with Kung-Fu Records (run by Vandals members Joe Escalante and Warren Fitzgerald) to re-release Buddha in the near future. An anonymous online post in 2013 alleges that the band did not properly compensate Pat Secor for his work on the original demo. Secor had been trying to get the band to put Buddha on CD, it says, but they declined to discuss it. When Secor attempted to sell copies of Buddha without paying royalties, it alleges the band got Escalante, who is also a lawyer, to stop it.

    2007 was about when it started dying, I think. I'm pretty sure I switched over the FB in 2008, though a lot of people I know switched earlier than I did. It is kind of funny, MySpace was big during the hiatus, but not really ever when the band was together. I discovered Angels & Airwaves on blink-182's Facebook page haha. Kind of an odd choice but still a nostalgic one for me.

    Before people jump in with oh well blame it on my youth peaked much higher, I’m guessing staying power might be valued more over peaking for a couple weeks and crashing. Honestly don’t know, but the songs came out basically within a week so it easy to compare the two

    This is like his worst nightmare right? I'm not necessarily rooting for either but I do love Rebel Girl and hate Blame It so would be a nice wake up call to try a different style

    Whats funny is that they were really similar almost brother like between 1994 - 2002 They have grown to be so different through the years tho Tom: - Huge confidence and kinda out there - Very dreamy and child like attitude towards life, anything is possible kinda thing - Has to move between different stuff otherwise goes crazy - Believes so much in what he says, comes of as pretentious sometimes (But never annoying or anything) Mark: - Doubts himself, Very sober person - Very realistic rational person, Could slip into depression - More drawn towards confort zones and order/repetition - Tries to look at things from a more objective outlook, Does not think as highly of himself 2 sides of a coin

    Yikes - scary that Mark called BIOMY as the quintessential song of the new album (or words to that effect).

    Yeah i know, was thinking of that as i was writing. But i don't enjoy it on Good Old Days for some reason. Like it more on the Darkside Progression. And i can't stand the vocals on Good Old Days. Feldy overcooked it

    In recent years I think he has started to become a lot more boring. One thing is the current state of blink and the more poppy sound, another thing is how everything he does with blink just seem so predictable. Im all in for Skiba because to me he is the only thing besides Travis that actually excites me and gets me pumped. This is why I like Simple Creatures because I feel Mark actually shows the guts to try something different there. Also I believe Misery is one of the better songs of the Skiba-era because of the bassthing he does in the bridge that just sounds awesome and that are not just generic basslines we've heard 1000 times before. I remember back from the recording of California that they said a lot of discussion went down about what blink really is. I think he has taken whatever conclusion way to seriously, because it seems like he just wants to stick with that and feel secure about it. Its a shame, because with Untitled/Neighborhoods/DED I think they actually opened up that blink could be an experimental project as well.

    I used to adore him, and now I feel pretty neutral about him. I feel like he’s always wanted to be popular—which is understandable—but it was Tom who pushed and challenged him, which is why blink’s music is what it is now.

    okay fuck, it's kind of depressing going from that to BIOMY in my head. I think I just accepted a while ago that I'll probably never love new blink music to the extent that I love that album, and that's helped me to enjoy the newer stuff a bit more, but ugh. What a downfall. If blink never broke up their follow up to the untitled album would have been amazing I bet.

    I've been a hardcore Markbot right up until California, then it started to wane. The more bullshit he does and says the more exasperating I find him.

    I think that’s about ten years too much. Maybe a little less. I’m 24 and MySpace was still popular enough for a couple years when my friends started getting social media.

    I first met Mark in 2007 and he was so fucking rad. So down to earth. Asked me to watch their set from side stage then hung out with me for half an hour after just chatting. I'd met Tom at their AVA show in Sydney in 2006 (?) and to me, Mark seemed so much cooler at the time. Seemed way more chill and easier to talk to. Seen them both again when they were with Blink in 2012 in Sydney and Tom was way more excitable then. He and Mark seemed to bounce off each other. Mark remembered me from the years before which was pretty cool, and they both seemed stoked to be there. To me Mark was so much cooler in person, and seemed way funnier. Over the last few years though, he's seemed like more of a douche in interviews though. It's weird...

    I’m way less pro mark now. Does seem like he might be a bit of a dick, and I’m starting to wonder if Tom ever was? I dunno. And he always talks so loud now too. That doesn’t factor into my opinion but damn. Keeping on the serious points I do think he’s responsible for the constant greatest hits set list, especially after Tom smiled and said you asshole you snuck this in regarding first date- and the fact that he seems so reluctant to stray away from them after Tom was out. It bugs me because wasn’t that one of his comments after Tom was out, that they’d no longer have to do the greatest hits sets? And it seemed like after they got back together he stifled banter as it happened live, always cutting it off and insisting the next song start. He also got caught in the lie about when the last time he and Tom spoke was, which was pretty uncool.

    I always thought Mark was the asshole of the group. I don't think he was or is a bad guy or anything, I just think he always seemed more full of himself than Tom, Scott or Travis. I think he has it in him to be a real douche when he wants to be. I also think he worked hard to control it and build a different image of himself. I'd hang with him anyday, he seems cool and fun enough and all my heroes are assholes anyway so we would get along. I just wouldn't put it past him to not always do what's best for Mark and be advantageous at someone else's expense.

    I actually thought that too and wished for that. I really love stuff like the synth on Always or Ghost On The Dancefloor, and love the flangers on guitars or bass. A nice blend between angsty alternative Boxcar racer guitars, 80s bittersweet/romantic new wave, energetic poppunk, with a touch of electronics. That would be my blink Its fun to dream

    New Order/The Cure are kinda what I assumed new Blink would veer toward like 4 years ago. Poppy/electronic in an 80s way

    hmm, appears my main post is too long. moving some of it here, though i'd rather it be collected somehow in one main thing. i remember there being talk of rebooting the whole forum/site not long ago, maybe when that happens we can spin this off into it's own page or something? not a forum post, but like, a side-section on the main page. i have no idea. all i know is that this is shaping up nicely to be a super document of blink's history. 2003 YEAR IN REVIEW: The band returns to the studio, where they'll spend the better part of a year crafting their fifth album, which is either untitled or self-titled, whatever.
