Blink-182 - 'Neighborhoods' (9/27)

The reunited pop-punk trio's first album in eight years was supposed to come out this past spring – but then drummer Travis Barker brought in a fresh batch of beats that inspired them to keep working. "He had these rhythms that we built songs on top of," says singer-guitarist Tom DeLonge. "It's all well worth the wait." Blink have been road-testing highlights from the set all summer, including the arena-scale single "Up All Night," the surprisingly catchy prog experiment "Ghost on the Dancefloor" and the honey-sweet love song "After Midnight." "We always had more potential than we were living up to," says DeLonge. "Hopefully from this point forward, we'll be able to show that."
