As blink-182 were gearing up for the Enema of the State tour, they were also working on a much less nostalgic project, their new album Nine. If blink’s last album wasn’t so hot, Nine still feels like it’s an album that has the potential to matter in 2019.

Mark promised in recent interviews, Nine is a darker and more aggressive record than California, and has more of an anything-goes spirit.
Listen to the tracks and let us know what you think of the album.

blink-182 – No Heart To Speak Of (Lyric Video)
Nine (stylized as NINE) is the eighth (or ninth as stated by Mark Hoppus) studio album by American rock band Blink-182, released on September 20, 2019 through Columbia Records. Blink-182—composed of bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus, guitarist/vocalist Matt Skiba, and drummer Travis Barker—began developing the album after fulfilling touring obligations for their previous release, California (2016). While Nine builds upon the band’s collaboration with producer John Feldmann—who also produced California—it also explores outside producers and songwriters. During the recording process, the band worked with several teams, including Captain Cuts, the Futuristics, and producer Tim Pagnotta.
Much of the album’s lyricism is dark in nature and was informed by world events, as well as Hoppus’s battle with depression. The color wash album cover was painted by renowned graffiti artist RISK, while the album’s title stems from its numerical sequence in the band’s catalog. Musically, the album updates the band’s pop punk sound with hip hop-inspired programming, as well as electronics.
The album received generally positive reviews from music critics, with some considering it an improvement over the band’s previous album and favorably comparing it to their 2000’s peak, notably their untitled effort, though others took issue with its lyrical content. –
