Some fans believe it's album 8, while others are leaning more towards album 9- so here's what Mark Hoppus said about calling the new Blink-182 album "NINE":
He took to Reddit to give some context to the name.
“NINE. this is our ninth album, as decided by me and travis,” he began. “some count buddha, some not. some count the mark tom and travis show. some count greatest hits. some count dogs eating dogs. i’m counting buddha, cheshire cat, dude ranch, enema of the state, toypaj, untitled, neighborhoods, califronia, and now NINE.”
“nine is also the number of universal love. and the number of uranus. remember to like and smash that subscribe button, or whatever it is the kids say now,” he continued.
