Great deals on musical instruments

The bass player from Blink-182 has announced that the US pop punk band are close to finishing their sixth studio album.

Mark Hoppus, 39, revealed the news online via the social networking site Facebook.

On his own homepage he wrote that he was very excited as they were now at the point of the music-making process where they were discussing mixers and finishing up the songs using music production software.

Hoppus said: "We deliver the album to the label on July 31st, so it will be coming out during the tour. The most recent batch of songs are some of the best of the entire record. Very happy it's all coming together."

It will be their first album since they released their eponymous fifth album way back in 2003.

Although they cancelled a planned UK tour and a number of summer festival performances to concentrate on finishing the album, they are scheduled to go on tour with My Chemical Romance in July.

Fans will be pleased to hear that the band plans on showing off a number of their new hits along with classics like What's My Age Again, All the Small Things and Adam's Song.
